These are so yummy! I buy the large mushrooms packaged from Costco or Sam's. Sometimes we eat these as a meal, with garlic bread.

STUFFED MUSHROOMS

24 large mushrooms
1 (10 oz) pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 stick butter (divided)
1 small onion, finely chopped
8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/8 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2-3 tbl parmesan cheese, grated

Remove mushroom stems; chop and set aside. Cook spinach in microwave 5 minutes or so; drain and squeeze out well. In large skillet melt HALF the stick of butter; saute garlic in butter for 1 minute. Turn off heat. Dip mushroom caps in butter, coating on both sides. Place in a 13x9 baking dish. Add remaining butter to skillet and saute chopped stems and onion until onion tender. In large bowl combine spinach, cream cheese, bread crumbs, mushroom/onion mixture, and seasonings. Mix w/hand mixer. Spoon into mushroom caps. Sprinkle w/additional parmesan. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
