Cookbook Update #1 recipe testing

This afternoon I was able to get more writing done and only have a few more stories to complete. diced veggies  This evening I tested two recipes.  Guess I know what we are having for dinner!  Stuffed mushroom caps and Brazilian pizza.  I made up the mushroom recipe and created it recently but (as usual) didn’t write anything down or measure.   Sooooo, I had to remake it.  I thoroughly washed the caps and removed the stems.  Then finely diced half the stems (the other half I used on the pizza) and 6 green onions.  After sauteing the onion and stems in garlic and olive oil I mixed them with 12 finely crushed

ritz crackers, 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 teaspoon

dried oregano and 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese.   I filled each cap and placed them in a roasting pan.  I poured 1/2 cup of red wine over them, covered the pan and baked them for 25 minutes at 350.  I removed the foil covering and put shredded mozzarella cheese on each cap, returned the pan to the oven and broiled the caps for about 4 minutes.

The pizza crust recipe (whole wheat and white flour)  makes two large pizzas!  So I made a teddy bear pizza with one.  I watched a bear pizza crust being made in Bosnia and I just couldn’t resist making it!  Brazilian pizza doesn’t have tomato sauce.  I used pesto and alfredo sauce with shredded chicken, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
