20fresh, large white or brown mushrooms, washed and stemmed
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray foil lined baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray
Wash mushrooms, remove stems and set the stems aside . ( *The stems easily pop off when you gently pull them to the side). Finely chop HALF the stems.
With a small spoon, gently scoop out mushrooms so there is room for stuffing. Add mushroom scrapings to finely chopped stems.
In a microwave safe bowl, cook butter, onion, garlic and only HALF mushroom stems and scrapings from the mushroom for 4 minutes. You can save the other half, eat or discard in the compost bin.
In a medium bowl, mix together instant mashed potatoes, cheese, bacon bits, sauerkraut, sour cream, salt, pepper. * Eliminate bacon bits if making vegetarian.
Then add the onion, mushroom stem, butter garlic mixture and stir until combined.
Stuff mushrooms,using a small spoon, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese, dividing evenly between all the mushrooms.
Bake until for 15 - 20 minutes or until mushrooms are golden and cooked through.
Garnish with parsley or fresh dill, and sour cream if desired.
*If you are making both the bacon and vegetarian versions, add some additional bacon bits to the top of bacon stuffed version after cooking so you can tell them apartMy Amazon Recommendations (affiliate links)
