Broiled mushroom caps
SmartPoints® value per serving
An easy side that's great on its own or sliced and served with steak or stirred into scrambled eggs, this recipe is also a wonderful first step to a stuffed mushroom appetizer or snack. Simply prepare and boil as directed here and then fill with your favorite fillings; broil again for a couple of minutes to heat the filling through. Serve the unstuffed mushrooms as a side dish for grilled meats or as the meaty-tasting star of a vegetable plate. These are delicious sliced and folded into an omelette, stirred into risotto, or spooned over steamed grains.
