Oven baked mushrooms ,stuffed with cream cheese and herbs all wrapped in parma ham .


• 4 Portabella / large field mushrooms
• 120g full fat cream cheese with herbs
• 4 spring onions finely chopped
• 1 red chili ,finely chopped, or pinch dried chili flakes
• 80g Parma ham


Pre heat oven 200 c , 400 f , gas 6.
In a bowl mix together cream cheese, chili and spring onion .
Wipe mushrooms and remove the stalks.
Spoon the mixture into the upturned mushrooms.
Wrap a slice of ham around the mushrooms. An 80 g pack may give more than 1 slice of ham per mushroom so you can put more than 1 slice on if you wish.
Place on baking tray face down.
Bake in oven for 12 - 15 mins depending on how soft you like your mushrooms.

This dish does produce its own juices so is good with cauliflower rice which absorbs them all up nicely. I have also served it with a green bean , tomato and olive salad which added 70 cals per serving.

    Me and my wife who are both doing the BSD had this for lunch today. I’d suggest having it for evening meal ( we call it tea where I’m from) as it was very filling, in fact so much so that I’m not hungry. Great tasting & simple to prepare. Great with a light salad. Thanks for posting it.

    Had these for tea tonight. 2 medium sized mushrooms, garlic and herb cream cheese and a heaped teaspoon of diced red pepper to use it up. I just had a mixed leaves and 1/2 an avocado with black pepper and a fine drizzle of spanish olive oil to dress.
    These were very, very tasty and filling. I dont think I would have them at lunch, but a lovely evening meal. Worth waiting for.
    Will be adding these to my tried and tested book.

    Absolutely delicious. We had two large Portabelo mushrooms each with sweet chilli cream cheese instead of chopped chilli and wrapped in prosciutto (same as Parma ham). We had some cauliflower rice on the side and the combination was divine – especially the baked prosciutto ( it’s like the thinnest, crispiest and tastiest bacon ever – wow!).
    This recipe is definitely a keeper!

    Excellent! Needed to use some of the Christmas ham. So good. Only the 8yo didn’t love it.
