Turkey-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
Recipe from EatingWell

We use portobello caps to make these dinner-sized stuffed mushrooms that are big on flavor without being overly rich. Rather than the traditional sausage filling, this recipe calls for lean ground turkey blended with fresh herbs and spices, topped with golden, melted fontina cheese. Add a tossed salad and a slice of crusty whole-grain bread to complete the meal.

Ingredients
  • 1   tablespoon 
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1   
    sweet onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 2   teaspoons 
    cider vinegar
  • 3/4  teaspoon 
    ground sage
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8  teaspoon 
    ground nutmeg
  • 1   pound 
    93%-lean ground turkey
  • 4   
    medium-large portobello mushroom caps, gills removed (see Tip)
  • 1   tablespoon 
    Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2  cup 
    finely shredded fontina cheese
Directions
1.
Position rack in the lowest position; preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2.
Cook oil and onion in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally and reducing heat as necessary to prevent scorching, until softened and starting to turn golden, about 20 minutes. Stir in vinegar.
3.
Meanwhile, combine sage, rosemary, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a small dish. Place turkey in a medium bowl and sprinkle the spice mixture over it. Gently knead to combine. Form into 4 equal balls. Rub mushroom caps on both sides with Worcestershire. Place one turkey ball in each mushroom cap, patting down to fill the cap. Place on a baking sheet.
4.
Bake the stuffed mushrooms on the bottom rack until the mushrooms begin to soften, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, spread the onion mixture over the filling and top with fontina. Continue baking until the cheese is melted and golden and the turkey is cooked through, about 10 minutes more.
Tip:

1.
Tip: The dark gills found on the underside of a portobello are edible, but if you like you can scrape them off with a spoon.
