TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 whole garlic bulbs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, divided
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 1-1/2 cups crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup crushed garlic-flavored melba rounds
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 12 baby portobello mushrooms
  • 12 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham
  • 3 tablespoons chicken broth

Directions

  • 1. Remove papery outer skin from garlic bulbs (do not peel or separate cloves). Cut top off of each garlic bulb. Brush with 2 tablespoons oil. Top with rosemary sprigs; wrap in heavy-duty foil. Bake at 425° for 30-35 minutes or until softened. Cool for 10 minutes.

  • 3. Remove stems from mushrooms (discard or save for another use).
  • 4. Fold each prosciutto slice in half lengthwise; wrap around mushrooms and fill with cheese mixture. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan; drizzle with remaining oil. Pour broth around mushrooms.
  • 5. Cover and bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Uncover; broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Yield: 1 dozen.
