Monday's Leftovers: Cheesy Stuffed Portobellos

Monday's Leftovers: Cheesy Stuffed Portobellos

You got to hand it to Rachael Ray, she is one clever lady. I would never have thought of stuffing portobello mushrooms with leftover deep dish pizza, but it sure is a great idea. Cubed pizza is tossed with sun dried tomatoes, spinach, and cheese. This mixture is then stuffed into the thick caps of mushrooms, making for a scrumptious meal. While it may not be the most FitSugar friendly dinner, it sure is an ingenious way to use leftover pizza! To look at the recipe,


Cheesy Stuffed Portobellos
From Everyday With Rachael Ray magazine

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 onion, chopped
6 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, thinly sliced
Two 6-ounce bags fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped
2 slices leftover deep-dish cheese pizza, cut into bite-size pieces
8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (2 cups)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish
Salt and pepper
4 large portobello mushroom caps

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 6 minutes.
  3. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and spinach and cook until the spinach wilts, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the pizza, half of the cheese, the chicken broth and basil and cook until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Season the stuffing with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.
  5. Using a spoon, scrape the gills from the inside of each mushroom cap and discard. Brush the top of each mushroom cap with olive oil and place upside down on a baking sheet.
  6. Divide the stuffing among the mushroom caps; sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake until the cheese is bubbly, 20 minutes. Top with more chopped basil.

Serves 4.

Agreed, Chiefdishwasher. Plus, I really dislike Rachael Ray's show and Rachael Ray, but she has some good ideas sometimes, but that is my personal opinion.

Leftover pizza is meant to be eaten cold for breakfast.

Eww! Why can't you just eat the leftover pizza without creating a whole new recipe?

This is almost as gross as her "Enchilasagna"-some sort of mexican leftover vomit dish. Now, if she just stuffed it with some spinach, feta, a touch of breadcrumbs, garlic and lemon it would be a great recipe. Deep dish pizza is best warmed on a pizza stone and eaten the way it was intended!

It might be super cheesy, but this seems like a great way to get a few more extra veggies - spinach and mushrooms. I'd add even more veggies to the mix. Like artichoke hearts (packed in water of course) and some red pepper. You could also try it with reduced fat mozzarella cheese. In fact I might even try it tonight!
