Preparation: A Symphony of Ingredients

Begin by preheating your air fryer to 400°F, selecting the “Air Crisp” function, and setting the timer to 6 minutes. As the unit warms up, take a moment to marvel at the star of this show – the roasted garlic. Squeeze the cloves into a spacious bowl, releasing their rich, caramelized essence. Joining the garlic on stage, introduce softened cream cheese, finely grated 6-cheese Italian blend, and a sprinkle of fresh chives. A dash of sea salt and black pepper brings harmony to the composition. Stir purposefully, ensuring the ingredients meld into a velvety, savory medley.

Building the Masterpiece: Mushroom Caps and Cheese Fusion

With the symphony of flavors ready, turn your attention to the Portobello mushrooms. Remove the gills and stems, creating a hollow space to house the decadent filling. A gentle pat dry ensures the mushrooms are receptive to the upcoming gastronomic embrace.

Embrace the air of indulgence by brushing the mushroom caps with a touch of extra virgin olive oil. This not only enhances the earthy undertones but also aids in achieving a crisp exterior. With precision, generously fill each cap with the cheese and garlic amalgamation, crafting a luscious landscape of textures and tastes. Crown your creation with a finale of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, elevating the dish to gourmet heights.
