This is from Barbos Diet Kitchen. I haven't tried it yet but I thought it would be good for those of us always going to parties and wishing there were appetizers that we could eat. I'm going to try the couscous approach since I've used it with my meatloaf and it works VERY well. Enjoy!

*Stuffed Mushrooms Core

Portabella Mushrooms or 24 small white. Stems chopped, inside cleaned
and ready for stuffing. I vote for the larger portabella's (barbo)

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2-3/4 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup couscous
3/4 cup beef broth
1 cup spinach, chopped fine
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons each of caraway seed,oregano, basil, black pepper and parsley,
or herbs of choice
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
shredded ff cheddar or mozzarella, to taste

-Heat olive oil in skillet
-add garlic and sautee for 2 minutes
-add ground turkey, breaking into very small pieces
-add spices and chopped mushroom stems and continue sauteeing until turkey is cooked
-in bowl, combine meat mixture, spinach, and couscous (you may want to adjust amount of couscous according to preference)
-add beef broth until you reach a desirable consistency
-stuff mushrooms
-bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes
-top with cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted.

*This recipe is from WW Recipe Board and is by someone called 444
I suggested the portabellas, as I would find stuffing 24 small mushrooms
tedious, and I would want a larger one on my plate. Some portabellas are
medium size. This is what I would use. Also she used oatmeal, but was
thinking of putting in brown rice or couscous as a filler. So take your
choice. I think this is a very good recipe and I'm going to try it.

Yummmm...I love stuffed mushrooms. I'll let someone else make them first though, so they can tell me how long it takes. :lol: I'm so lazy!
