Making stuffed portobellos for guys watching a hockey game was quite an endeavor. I made two dozen for six guys, and as the game got more exciting, they screamed for more. Scraping the gills from the underside of the mushroom is easy if you use a small teaspoon, gently, so as not to crack the cap. The amount of cheese, pepperoni and spices is entirely up to whatever satisfies your team. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms (3 inches)

  1. Remove and discard stems and gills from mushrooms; brush caps with oil. Place rounded sides down on an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the pizza sauce, pepperoni, green pepper and 1-1/4 teaspoons Italian seasoning; spoon onto mushrooms. Sprinkle with cheese and remaining Italian seasoning. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and cheese is bubbly.
