Em's famous Stuffed Mushrooms

These are a holiday tradition that everyone loves! I came up with this recipe a few years ago. I make these at Thanksgiving, for family gatherings and any and all holiday parties. They go fast and are so delicious!!! Make them a few hours ahead of time and refrigerate them until ready to bake.
Em's Famous Stuffed MushroomsRecipe by: Emily
2 lbs Mushrooms, medium sized
3 cans Minced or Chopped Clams
2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese
1/2-3/4 cup Dry Italian Bread Crumbs
1/3 cup Minced Onion
2-3 tsp Parsley, chopped
Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 Tbsp Butter

1.De-stem and clean the mushrooms. Chop the mushroom stems. Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Saute the mushrooms and onion for a few 5-7, until the onions are translucent and then add the juice from the clam cans. Reduce clam juice to a quarter of the juice. Add clams, chopped parsley and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook for 1 minute, remove from heat then add enough bread crumbs to absorb clam juice but not dry out the mixture. Add 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese and mix with a fork. Taste and season with salt if needed. Stuff the mushroom caps with the clam mixture then top each mushroom with remaining shredded cheese. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. Serve hot and enjoy!
