Let’s get started
Step 1: Washing and dry the Portobellos with a paper towel. Then take the stem of the mushrooms out and with the help of a spoon scrape and remove the gills.
Step 2: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F for 10 mins while you brush the face-down mushroom caps with olive oil. Allow the mushrooms to cook on baking sheet for about 10 minutes until it begins to soften.
Step 3. As the mushroom cooks, mix chopped spinach, artichoke, garlic, cream cheese and mayonaise in a large bowl.
Tip: Frozen spinach was used for this recipe. If you are using fresh spinach, steam and chop the spinach. Put it on a clean kitchen towel and squeeze the water out as much as possible.
Step 4: Add sour cream and parmesan cheese to the bowl and mix everything well.
Step 5: Next its time to add Mozarella to the mix.
Step 6. Finally add some salt, white pepper and crushed red pepper flakes to the mixing bowl for flavoring and give it one last good mix.
Step 7: Now take the cooked Portobellos, flip then over and stuff each mushroom well with an equal amount of the spinach artichoke filling prepared before.
Step 8: Sprinkle remaining Parmesan and Mozarella on the top of each stuffed mushroom. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.
Step 9: Bake until the mushrooms are easily pierced with a fork and the cheese is melted. Once the mushrooms are baked (you can check them with a fork) and cheese melts, broil the mushroom caps for a few minutes until the cheese starts to brown.
Your delicious artichoke spinach stuffed portobello mushroom is ready to serve. If you have leftover fillings use them as a dip for tortilla chips or anything else you like.
