Marinated and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

For Thanksgiving Eve I made some marinated and cheese stuffed mushrooms. I almost made either marinated or cheese stuffed mushrooms, but I decided to combine my recipes and see how they turned out. I enjoyed them!

I bought 2 packs of "stuffing mushrooms"... yes, stuffing mushrooms. I have never noticed mushrooms by that name but they clearly served their purpose. On Tuesday night I prepared the marinade... something along the lines of:

1c water
1/2c oil
1/2c red wine vinegar
chopped/minced garlic
spices of choice: oregano, thyme, pepper

Simmer ingredients and then add mushrooms (remember to remove the stalk). Bring to a boil for a few minutes. Allow to cool and store overnight in the refrigerator.

After the mushrooms have been in the marinade overnight, remove and place in a pan or on a cookie sheet. I placed them snugly in a pan so they wouldn't slide around. Stuff with your choice of cheese. I chose brie because it is soft and easy to ball up to fit right inside the mushroom.

Place in oven on a moderate temperature (350-ish) for about 20 minutes.

Optional: garnish with paprika, or use chili powder by accident like I did (hey, they are the same color).
