Cheese-Topped Baked Portobello Mushrooms

Cheese-Topped Baked Portobello Mushrooms: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
For a truly wonderful indulgence, try this the next time you have company. It's great when you crave cheese. We are partial to mushrooms, and big, glorious portobellos can stand up to baking. Buy large, flat mushrooms.


  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 4 portobello mushrooms, stemmed
  • 4 plum tomatoes, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella or soy cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Spray a shallow baking pan with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Arrange the mushrooms, gill sides up, in the pan and bake for about 15 minutes. Turn the mushrooms over and cook for 15 to 20 minutes longer or until soft. Remove from the oven and turn the mushrooms over so that gill sides face up again.
  • Lay the tomato slices on top of the mushrooms. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the tomatoes soften.
  • Sprinkle the mushrooms and tomatoes with basil and pepper and top with shredded cheese. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes longer or until the cheese melts. Serve right away.
