  1. Put oven rack in middle position in oven and preheat to 400°F.
  2. Trim ends of mushroom stems and separate caps and stems, reserving both. Arrange caps, stemmed sides up, in a buttered 13"x9" shallow baking dish.
  3. Finely chop stems(or process in food processor), then cook with garlic and oregano in butter(or olive oil) in a 10" heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in pecans, bread crumbs, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute. Stir in 1/3 cup half and half and bring to a simmer, then remove from heat.
  4. Sprinkle insides of caps with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, then divide filling among the caps.
  5. Drizzle mushrooms with the 2/3 cup cream and bake until filling is browned and caps are tender, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle over parsley to garnish. Serve mushrooms drizzled with pan juices.

these are little bites of heaven!! i think the only thing i did differently was to scale the recipe down (there was just 2 of us having a little appy get-together), eyeball everything and add a small handful of gorgonzola crumbles to the mix before stuffing the mushrooms. great make-ahead recipe! thanks for sharing. will make again.

These are just deliciously wonderful and I will be making them often during this holiday season! I did add some parmesan cheese and I love the addition of pecans! Mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers and this is now one of my favorite appetizer recipes.
