Goat cheese and pancetta go together like a horse and a carriage. So, we decided to take those two ingredients, along with some green onions, garlic, and parmesan cheese, and make the best goat cheese stuffed mushrooms using Monterey® Baby Bella Mushrooms. These decadent pancetta-stuffed Baby Bella mushrooms are easy to make, give your taste buds a real treat, and are a great appetizer or side for any occasion! And did we mention our Baby Bellas are loaded with nutrients? These little crowd-pleasers are packed with:
- Vitamin D
- B Vitamins, such as riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid
- Selenium— an antioxidant
All of these nutrients within our stuffed Baby Bella mushrooms are significant for brain and heart health and provide the following benefits:
Copper helps create neurotransmitters by activating necessary enzymes. These neurotransmitters can support brain functionality. Copper also replenishes your skin and hair health by creating melanin.
Like copper, the mineral “selenium” activates enzymes, but these enzymes support your metabolism and thyroid gland. Some of the enzymes activated by selenium may also combat cellular damage.
Niacin helps your body with chemical reactions, such as converting food into energy. Niacin can also help with cell creation, communication, and healing of damaged DNA.
Pantothenic acid, known as Vitamin B-5, activates enzymes needed to stabilize cholesterol. It also supports brain health and nerve function by producing myelin.
