Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Where are my fun-guys out there?!

Today's recipe is dedicated to the mushroom lovers! I love almost all mushroom based dishes and this is one of my favorites! I'll be sharing with you today an easy STUFFED MUSHROOMS recipe. I fell in love with The Cheesecake Factory's stuffed mushroom appetizers a while back and I really wanted to make my own. Through many trials, this recipe has become the final end result of "making my own stuffed mushrooms journey." With this basic recipe you can probably play around with it and add or take out ingredients. I've added shrimp to this recipe before and it turned out to be a big hit! This dish is great to have as an appetizer or as a side to steak, fish, pasta and so much more! This'll be a very rich and creamy stuffed mushrooms recipe that I recommend for special occasions - definitely not an everyday food to have but totally worth it at the moment! It's pretty simple to make and the results will be fantastic! 

Here's what you'll need - many of the measurements are estimates since I don't usually measure the ingredients:
1 pack of Mushrooms
1 whole Onion
1/4 of Red Cooking Wine - For filling
4 tblsp of Cream Cheese
1/3 cup of Bread Crumbs (have some extra to top the stuffed mushrooms for baking)
1 tblsp of Parmesan Cheese
2 tsp of Onion Powder
2 tsp of Garlic Powder
2 tsp of Parsley
1 tsp of Paprika
1 tsp of Dried Oregano or 2 tsp of Fresh Oregano
1/4 of Red Cooking Wine - For sauteing onions and mushrooms
2 tblsp of Butter
1/4 of Milk or Heavy Cream
2 tblsp Olive Oil
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
