    Cheesy Stuffed Mushrooms


    4 large portobello mushrooms, stalks removed
    50g butter
    1 bunch basil, half chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 handful cherry tomatoes, halved
    200g bocconcini or mozzarella
    balsamic vinegar
    salt and pepper, to taste


    1. Preheat the grill on your oven to 190°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
    2. On a medium-high heat, melt the butter. Then stir through the garlic and half of the bunch of basil leaves, chopped. Brush the surface of the mushrooms with basil butter.
    3. Tear up the bocconcini and layer with the tomatoes in the mushrooms.
    4. Grill for 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste. Delicious!
