  • 1/4 c Fresh CHRISTOPHER RANCH California Garlic Bechemel (recipe Below)
  • 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • Salt (To Taste)
  • 2 Scallions, Sliced
  • Freshly Ground White Pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Coarsely Ground Pecans
  • Cayenne Pepper (To Taste)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Freshly Ground Parmesan Cheese
  • 4 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Bread Crumbs
  • 4 tbsp Unbleached All-purpose Flour
  • For Garlic Bechamel:
  • 2 1/2 cup Scalded Milk
  • Salt and Freshly Ground White Pepper To Taste
  • 1 Large Egg At Room Temperature
  • Fresh CHRISTOPHER RANCH California Garlic Puree From 3 Large Heads Of Roasted Fresh California Grown Garlic


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Clean the mushrooms. Remove the stems and reserve. Parboil the mushrooms in just enough water to cover, for 3 minutes, until barely cooked. Drain well, blot with paper towels, and set aside until needed. If the tip of the stems seem woody, trim them away. Chop stems coarsely.

Melt 2 tbsp of the butter in a skillet. Toss the chopped mushrooms stems and scallions. Saute until tender and most of the mushroom juices have evaporated. Toss in the pecans, pecans, bred crumbs, parmesan cheese, and remaining tablespoon of butter.

Stir until the butter is melted and absorbed. Stir in the garlic bechamel. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Stuff each mushroom cap with the mixture, mounding it neatly over the top. Sprinkle each with some cayenne pepper. Put stuffed mushrooms in a lightly oiled, shallow baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes or until heated through. Serve at once.;

For Garlic Bechamel:

Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan and whisk in the flour. Let this roux cook over low heat, stirring constantly for 3 to 4 minutes. Whisk in the scalded milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook gently, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper and whisk in the garlic puree. Remove from the heat. Beat the egg in a bowl. Beat some of the sauce into the egg. Next beat the egg mixture back into the garlic sauce. Taste and correct seasonings. Store in the refrigerator, with plastic wrap placed directly on the surface of the sauce, until needed. Thin with milk before using if necessary.
