Half Baked Harvest describes this dish as, “kind of like eating cheesy guacamole”. We’re sold!

What you’ll need:

The main course:

  • 1 pound of baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper
  • 3 mashed avocados
  • ½ cup of quartered grape tomatoes
  • ¼ cup of chopped green onions
  • ¼ cup of chopped, fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno (seeded & diced)
  • 1 juiced lime
  • ½ teaspoon of cumin
  • 3-4 ounces of crumbled blue cheese

The sauce:

  • ½ cup of melted butter
  • ¾ cup of hot sauce (your preferred brand)
  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • ½ teaspoon of pepper

How to cook it:

Preheat your grill to medium heat or (your oven to about 400 degrees if you prefer to bake). In a bowl, toss the mushrooms with olive oil, salt and pepper. Then, on either the grill or baking sheet, place the mushrooms stem side up and cook for 8-10 minutes.

While the mushrooms are cooking, mix your mashed avocados with tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice, cumin, salt and pepper. Make sure to mix well, so you can combine and fold in the blue cheese.

When ready, remove the mushrooms from the grill or oven and dump out any liquid that may be in the caps. Stuff each mushroom with the blue cheese guacamole.

To prepare the buffalo sauce, combine the melted butter, hot sauce of choice, seasoned salt and pepper. Whisk and drizzle over the mushrooms.

Enjoy!
