So good I could put it on a bagel. That used to be one of my measures of greatness. Now it's more like wow, I could totally eat this with a spoon and a smile. When I was making the filling for these delicious little gems, I blurted out, "Wow! I could totally eat this on a bagel!" Cue an awkward pause. Even my inner low-carb conscience was not thinking an appropriate bagel look alike. She was dreaming of slathering the filling on a giant carby toasted New York bagel. Sesame bagel, to be precise.
Despite wanting to spread the filling on anything and everything, and eating a disturbing amount of it on a spoon (with a giant goofy smile), I did eventually manage to fill some mushroom caps with it. A few less than the original 12 that the recipe said, but only because of my excessive need to keep tasting it.
The only thing I would add to this, and it's totally great without it, is maybe a teeny sprinkling of garlic powder. I used regular yellow onions, but I think red onions or vidalias would be outrageously good also.
I made them in my toaster oven, and they came out perfect! I paired them up with some buffalo wings and had quite a tasty dinner. I could totally see these being served to guests and being a part of the regular weekly dinner rotation. Somehow I had the strength to put a few in the fridge, and they are great as a part of that cold leftovers breakfast we don't always admit to, but know we all have.
