MouthWatering, Plump, Juicy Stuffed Mushrooms

All you need are as follows:

24 whole fresh cremini mushrooms

1 TB vegetable oil

1.5 TB minced garlic

5 oz cream cheese, softened

¼ tsp garlic powder

½ cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

Bread crumb mixture:  ¼ cup seasoned bread crumb and ⅛ cup Parmigiano Reggiano

1 TB lemon juice

cooking oil for baking sheet

Direction:

Preheat oven to 350F and brush cooking oil on baking sheet.  Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel or give them a quick rinse, do not soak them in water as they are very porous and will suck up all the water and become tasteless.  Carefully break off stems and cut off and discard tough end of the stems.
