How to Make Artichoke Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms

These stuffed mushrooms are super easy to make with only have 5 ingredients. Start with cleaning the mushrooms. Use a wet paper towel to gently wipe the mushrooms and dry them with a towel. Remove the mushroom stems and discard. Next, make the artichoke-parmesan stuffing. Combine chopped artichokes, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, and cream cheese. Stuff the artichoke-parmesan mixture into the mushroom caps and bake.

You can make the artichoke-parmesan stuffing ahead of time and refrigerate. You can also assemble the stuffed mushrooms ahead of time and refrigerate overnight until ready to bake. I love easy make-ahead recipes like this!

How to Make Stuffed Mushrooms Not Watery

Fresh mushrooms have a lot of water in them. The water releases as the mushrooms cook. The way I keep the stuffed mushrooms from getting watery is to cook them on a baking rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet. This way when the liquid starts to release it falls down in the bottom of the pan. Since the mushrooms are on the baking rack, they don't cook in their liquid and won't get watery.

How to Make Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup

As I said, this Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup is SUPER easy to make. Start with cooking some onion and fresh mushrooms. Next, add some water, chicken broth, sherry, cream of mushroom soup, and a box of quick-cooking long grain and wild rice. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. That is it! I told you this was easy to make.

I used a box of Uncle Ben's quick-cooking Long Grain & Wild Rice Blend. You are just going to dump the seasoning packet and rice directly into the soup. Do no precook it. It will cook it directly in the pot with the rest of the ingredients.

Feel free to swap the chicken broth for vegetable broth to make this a vegetarian recipe. You can also use 98% Fat-Free or Healthy Choice Cream of Chicken Soup.

How to Make Air Fryer Chicken Wings with Baking Powder

The key to getting the wings nice and crispy in the air fryer is coating the skin with baking powder before cooking. I had read about this technique online in the past and finally tested it out. Let me tell you, it works! I'm not sure about all of the science behind it, but letting the baking powder soak into the chicken skin makes it crispy when it bakes in the air fryer.

To make these Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings start with rubbing the chicken wings with some garlic powder and baking powder. Let the chicken hang out in the refrigerator for at least one hour or up to overnight. When ready to bake the wings, season them with salt and pepper. Place them in the air fryer basket standing them up on their ends next to the edge of the basket wall. Make sure not to overcrowd the basket. Bake the wings and then toss in wing sauce. I used a bottle of Frank's Wings Sauce.

If you aren't a fan of buffalo sauce, feel free to toss the wings in your favorite sauce. BBQ sauce or this sauce from our Sweet & Spicy Boneless Wings would also be delicious!
