Last week I posted a recipe for Italian Stuffed Mushrooms and I promised a follow-up post to let you know how I used up my leftover mushroom stuffing mix to make a quick and delicious lunch idea. But first, there’s something I want to show you.
The other day, while in the barn, I couldn’t help but snap this picture. Look at those eyelashes. Are they not the most beautiful lashes you’ve ever seen? Maybelline wants you baby.
So after everyone in our house had eaten as many stuffed mushrooms as they could possibly eat, there was still a substantial bowl of stuffing mix sitting in the fridge and it kept calling out to me every time I opened the door.
It got to the point where I just couldn’t take it any more and so I made these Cheesy Italian Naan breads for lunch. It’s a great way to use up any leftover stuffed mushroom filling.
Here’s how it’s done.
Preheat your oven to 350 °F. Pull out some Naan bread ( I buy mine from the local grocery store in the bread section but if you have trouble finding it, any type of flat bread will work) and place it on a greased baking sheet. Cover the Naan bread with shredded mozzarella cheese followed by the Italian stuffed mushroom filling. Sprinkle with some chopped Italian parsley. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until slightly golden.
I ate mine piled high with English cucumbers for a refreshing crunch. This was quick, easy and delicious. And that’s just the kind of lunch I love.

Sprinkle with some chopped Italian parsley. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until slightly golden. Allow to cool and serve warm.
I love recipes that are versatile and this one is definitely versatile.
How many Naan breads you can make depends on how much of your Italian mushroom filling you have left over. I was able to make 4.
You could make the Italian Stuffed Mushroom filling just so that you could have these cheesy Naan’s. The only difference is you would need 4-5 mushrooms to chop and saute with all of the other ingredients instead of 40. It would make approximately 8-10 cheesy Naan breads.
Another idea I had … I know stop already. Instead of filling mushrooms … how about filling zucchini? Hmmm. Anyone who grows zucchini know’s you can never have enough zucchini ideas.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
