Herb- and Goat Cheese-Stuffed Mushrooms
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper; set aside. Clean mushrooms. Remove stems from mushrooms and chop; set aside. In a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon of the oil and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt; brush mixture onto mushroom caps. Arrange caps, stemmed sides up, in the prepared baking pan.
- For filling, in a large skillet heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the butter over medium-high heat. Add mushroom stems, shallot, garlic, thyme, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook and stir for 8 to 10 minutes or until stems are tender and liquid is evaporated. Remove from heat; carefully add sherry. Return to heat; cook until sherry is evaporated, stirring to scrape up any crusty brown bits. Cool for 10 minutes. Stir in panko, chives, and lemon peel. Stir in cheese and pine nuts.
- Generously fill mushrooms caps with filling. Bake about 15 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and filling is bubbly around edges. Sprinkle with additional chives if desired and serve warm.
