Everyone enjoys a great stuffed mushroom, and these are awesome. It’s like having Olive Garden mushrooms at home! This copycat recipe for Olive Garden stuffed mushrooms is crowd-pleasing. This recipe is a winner in my family, and it will be in yours.
2tablespoonsmozzarella cheese finely grated for stuffing
1/4cupmozzarella cheese finely grated for garnish
Wash the mushrooms, remove the stems, and pat dry. Save the stems for another recipe. Drain the clams and reserve the liquid.
In a mixing bowl, mix together clams, green onion, minced garlic, garlic salt, 1 tablespoon soft butter, and oregano. Add egg, breadcrumbs, and clam juice and mix everything together. Stir the cheeses into the clam stuffing until well blended.
Place the clam mixture in each mushroom cavity and make it into a small mound. You should be able to stuff between 8 and 12 mushrooms depending on the size of the mushrooms. Place the mushrooms in a lightly-oiled baking dish. Pour 1/4 cup melted butter over the mushrooms.
Cover and place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 35 - 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the mushrooms with freshly grated mozzarella cheese. Pop them back in the oven until the cheese is just slightly melted.
