Because I was inspired by an early post of stuffed mushrooms, I made some w/ a twist for lunch today. It was so good that I had to share:

4 large white mushrooms (6oz approximately)
1 Tbsp finely chopped onion
12 mini bretons
1 tbsp fat free cream cheese
3.5 oz shrimp (cocktail style)
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 juice from a lemon

Spray a small pan w/ pam. Preheat often 400.

Wash mushrooms
Remove stem from caps. Dice up stems (put caps aside).
Sautee onion & mushrooms stems (in a little chicken broth)
Season above with salt & pepper to taste.

In a bowl - crush mini bretons - add cream cheese.

When onion/mushroom mixture is sauteed nicely add it to the bowl with the crushed bretons and cream cheese -- mix well.

Squeeze lemon juice over mushroom caps then fill caps with above mixture (fill them right up - they will not melt over)

Put filled caps in your baking pan. Add shrimp on top (this is a lot of shrimp, so they will not all fit in the caps).

Bake approximately 15-20 minutes or until caps are tender.

Yeilds: 1 garnish, 1 bread, 1 protein, 6oz vegetable

A variation could be reducing the shrimp and adding a slice of fat free mozza cheese to bake on top (but don't put the cheese on until the end)!

OOOHHH I am SO making that too!!! When you say cocktail - do you mean like on a shrimp ring? Or do you mean those tiny ones you see on pizza?  (I can see the BC get together when it happens will need to include a potluck component!)

The little ones you'd get on pizza (there cooked already)

So I modified this just a little bit - and added another garnish (cause I only eat 2 a day) and since I don't really use them for anything else - thought I'd make these super decadent...

I added 1 Tbsp of the Hormel Bacon bits... so amazing -  and I took out the shrimp and just used them as a veggie and 2 garnishes... just like the ones I made before the diet... YUM!:D

Making these for dinner tonight minus the shrimp as I'm having it with chicken.  May try with shrimp for lunch tomorrow.
