Meatball Stuffed Mushrooms

Recipe Courtesy of Brooke from Cheeky Kitchen

 

Cooking meatballs inside of mushrooms, instead of serving them on pasta, makes for a delicious dish that satisfies any time of the year, but especially during those autumn months when you’re craving warmth!

Ingredients

1 (15 ounce) can crushed fire-roasted tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon sugar
16 baby bella mushroom caps
16 meatballs
16 1″-square slices of mozzarella
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a shallow baking dish, add the tomatoes, garlic, basil, salt, and sugar. Stir to mix.
  3. Place the mushroom caps on top of the tomato sauce. Place meatballs inside the mushroom caps. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  4. Remove pan from oven and top each meatball with mozzarella.
  5. Drizzle olive oil over the mushrooms and meatballs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Return to oven and bake for 10-15 minutes more, until the cheese melts and turns a light golden brown. Remove from oven, serve, and enjoy!
