Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms (low carb)

16 large white or brown mushrooms, stemmed and cleaned
2 tbl lemon juice
1/4 c. egg beaters (or 1 egg, beaten)
8 oz blue cheese, crumbled
optional garnish: walnut halves, parsley sprigs, fresh or canned red pepper strips

Preheat broiler. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Toss the mushroom caps with the lemon juice, drain, and discard lemon juice. Place the mushrooms stem side up on the baking sheet. Spray the mushrooms with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine egg beaters with blue cheese. Evenly spoon the cheese into the mushroom caps.

Broil the mushrooms 8-10" from the heat source for 5-6 min. or until golden brown. Remove from broiler and transfer the mushrooms to a serving platter. If desired, decorate with garnishes. Serve hot.
