These party-friendly meatball stuffed mushrooms have a classic homemade meatball nestled in a baby bella mushroom and then topped with marinara and mozzarella.
‣ 1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs ‣ 1 teaspoon garlic powder ‣ 1 teaspoon onion powder ‣ 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt ‣ 1/4 teaspoon black pepper ‣ 1 pound lean ground beef ‣ 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish (optional) ‣ 1 large egg ‣ 1 pound baby bella mushrooms, cleaned with stems removed ‣ 1 1/2 cup marinara sauce, plus more for garnish (optional) ‣ 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese ‣ 1 cup chopped fresh basil, for garnish (optional)
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together the Italian breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, fine sea salt, black pepper, ground beef, parmesan cheese, and egg.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then arrange the baby bella mushrooms on top, bottom side up. Scoop up about one tablespoon of the meat mixture, roll it into a ball, and place it on top of a mushroom. Finish by drizzling a little marinara sauce on top.
Bake the meatball stuffed marshmallows, then remove them from the oven. Sprinkle them with mozzarella cheese, then toss them back in the oven until the cheese melts.
