12 fresh mushrooms 1 can (6 ounce size) clams (drained and finely minced) 1/4 cup clam juice for stuffing 1 green onion, chopped finely 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon melted butter, cooled 1 teaspoon oregano leaves 1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs 1 egg, beaten 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese 1 tablespoon finely grated Romano cheese 2 tablespoons finely grated Mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup finely grated Mozzarella cheese, for garnish 1/4 cup melted butter, for topping freshly chopped parsley, for garnish
Wash and remove stems from mushrooms, pat dry. Save stems for another recipe. In mixing bowl place clams, onion, garlic salt, minced garlic, butter and oregano. Mix through and blend well. Add Italian bread crumbs, egg, clam juice and blend. Stir cheeses in clam stuffing and mix well. Place clam mixture inside mushroom cavity and slightly mound clam mixture.
You should be able to stuff between 8 - 12 mushrooms depending on the size of mushrooms.
Place mushrooms in slightly oiled baking dish. Pour butter over mushrooms. Cover and place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for about 35 - 40 minutes.
Remove cover and sprinkle freshly grated mozzarella cheese on top and pop back in oven just so the cheese melts slightly, garnish with freshly diced parsley.
I just moved to a town where we don't have an Olive Garden - oh the agony!!! I'm working my way through all the OG recipes on this site so I can relive my favorites. This one is amazing! The mushrooms taste just like OG. I was worried they'd be too fishy tasting so I used half clam juice and half chicken broth, but I think all clam juice would have been just fine.

This recipe is spot on! They taste amazing and smell amazing and are the same as the ones at Olive Garden! I added a little extra cheese in my recipe because I LOVE cheese and used white button mushrooms. Thanks for the recipe.

These were just likt the real thing, I didn't add the clam juice and added extra butter (I love butter) and they were so delicious, highly recommended! I will definitely be making these for the Thanksgiving party.

I LOVED this recipe. At Olive Garden, I get the mushrooms as my meal - and the recipe was DEAD ON. One thing, though, I would use half as much oregeno - I found it overwhelmed all the other flavors. Will definitely be making these for my Christmas Eve party! THANK YOU!

These did taste just like the Olive Garden stuffed mushrooms! Maybe the recipe was for larger mushrooms than I used, but I had way to much filling left over. Also, the cheese over the top, I used crumbled mozzerella, and it didn't work very well--shredded would have been better. (The crumbled mozzerella worked very well in the stuffing though)
