Ingredients:

12 large mushrooms

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

3 tablespoons chopped green onions

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

3 tablespoons port wine

1 teaspoon Italian-style seasoning

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 dashes hot pepper sauce

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Remove stems from mushrooms. Set aside caps. Finely chop stems, discarding hard pieces.
  3. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in mushroom caps, garlic and green onions. Cook and stir until soft, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool until easily handled.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together chopped mushroom stem pieces, cream cheese, port wine, Italian-style seasoning, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, ground black pepper and hot pepper sauce.
  5. Stuff mushroom caps with the mushroom stem mixture. Arrange on a medium baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
