Healthy & Delicious: Clam-Stuffed Mushrooms
This week, just in time for the New Year, we're finishing off our exploration of hors d'oeuvres with an adaptation of Clam-Stuffed Mushrooms from All Recipes.
It's a pretty simple dish; you mix a few ingredients, cram them into a pre-baked mushroom, heat it up, and serve. No muss, no fuss. Well, actually, a little fuss: balancing the cheese on top of the stuffing required more coordination than of which I'm capable. Alas, that's more of a sad commentary on my dexterity than anything else.
The best part about this recipe is the addition of clam. Largely sustainable and virtually fat-free, it's an interesting twist on what can occasionally be a fairly staid recipe. Buying a more upscale brand will only help the flavor of your dish, as some find bargain-basement clams to be a little tough and perhaps even a tad tasteless.
And with that, have a healthy and happy New Year everyone. See you in 2011.
