1/2 teaspoon dried chilli

Method Prep:10min › Cook:30min › Ready in:40min
Remove stalks from the portabello mushrooms and chop finely.
Splash oil to pan, allow to heat gently, add garlic, herbs and chilli to infuse oil. Add chopped stalks, button mushrooms and onion. Fry gently until mushrooms release liquid and onions are transluscent, about 7 to 8 minutes.
Add breadcrumbs or crushed crackers to soak up flavours.
Oil an oven dish and place the two cleaned portabellos with the stalk side facing up. Pack with the stuffing mixture. Cover with ham, sprinkle with cheese and seasoning.
O.K. I tweaked it to take into account my store cupboard. And I only prepared and cooked 2, as a main meal [lunch]. But, oh boy! was that scrumptious or what? I'll be doing that again, possibly as a starter.
