* 4 Portabella mushrooms (3-4" in diameter)
* 1 pkg. frozen creamed spinach
* 4 oz. grated sharp (yellow) cheddar cheese
* Olive oil
* Old Bay seasoning
* Pimentos or roasted peppers for garnish.
Remove stems from mushrooms, brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning. Broil 6-8 inches from heat source, cap side up for about 8-10 min. or until browned. Turn over, fill each with 1⁄4 thawed spinach. Sprinkle with cheese. Garnish with several strips of pimento or pepper. Broil until cheese is melted.
Serve as the main course or a complete side dish. Note: This recipe can be modified as an appetizer. Substitute 24 white button mushrooms for Portabellas and divide ingredients equally. Reduce cooking time accordingly.
