Updated: Feb 6

Today is national stuffed mushroom day.

According toย, the exact origin of this day is unknown. However, credit must be given where its due, and so we credit the Italians for coming up with this scrumptious dish that uses cheese, breadcrumbs, vegetables, and meat to create this melt in your mouth masterpiece.

But, don't take my word for it. Hereโ€™s a fun, easy recipe for stuffed mushrooms to try out for yourself:

Toss the mushrooms, oil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Place them on the cooking trays of the Deluxe Air Fryer.

For the filling, grate the mozzarella with the Microplaneยฎ Adjustable Coarse Grater. Finely chop the green onions. Add the mozzarella, onions, and remaining filling ingredients to a medium bowl and mix well.

Use a scoop or spoon to stuff the mushrooms. For the topping, combine the breadcrumbs, melted butter, and rub in a small bowl. Dip the mushrooms (filling-side down) into the breadcrumb mixture to coat.

Place the trays on the top and bottom racks of the air fryer. Turn the wheel to select the ROAST setting; press the wheel to select. Turn the wheel to adjust the time to 15 minutes; press the wheel to start. Switch the trays halfway through cooking (youโ€™ll hear beeps as a reminder).
