Pepperoni Stuffed Mushrooms

Trying to clean out the refrigerator, I needed a recipe to use up some mushrooms. I love the ingredient search on Allrecipes. Look what it found for me! To make these stuffed mushrooms a little healthier, use turkey pepperoni and breadcrumbs instead of buttery crackers. These were easy and really good!

24 large button mushrooms
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, minced
3/4 cup diced pepperoni
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup crushed buttery round crackers
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 pinch salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
3/4 cup chicken broth

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Remove and chop the mushroom stems. Set the caps to the side.

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushroom stems, onion, pepperoni, and garlic to the butter and cook until the onions are tender. Stir in the cracker crumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, salt, pepper, and chicken broth; remove from heat and allow to cool to the touch.

Stuff the mushroom caps with the pepperoni mixture. Arrange the stuffed caps on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until filling is hot and mushrooms are cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.
