How To Make Red Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms
Once you have all the ingredients together, making a seafood stuffed mushroom is incredibly easy and can be done in just a few minutes.
Here are the main steps to follow:
Step 1: Heat up the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
Step 2: Saute the pepper, celery, and onion together in the butter for around 2 minutes to make the mixture as creamy as possible.
Step 3: Prepare the mushrooms by washing them thoroughly and chopping off half of the stems, these will be used as a delicious addition to the core mixture of the mushroom.
Step 4: Mix together the sauteed vegetables, mushroom stems, and all the other extra ingredients together, however, leave the cheese slices out from this mixture as they will need to be used as the coating later on.
Step 5: Place the mushroom caps each into individual buttered casseroles or baking dishes and spoon a single teaspoon of the stuffing into each to add as much flavor to them as possible.
Step 6: Cover each mushroom with the cheese slices to give them an incredibly soft texture that’s a delight to bite into, especially with the seafood-based mixture packed into the core of the mushroom.
Step 7: Bake the cheese-covered mushrooms in the oven for up to 15 minutes. The key way to tell if the stuffed mushrooms are finished cooking is if the cheese coating starts to turn to a light brown.
