Romaine, or Cos lettuces as they are also known, have a long, oval head of tightly packed crisp leaves.
Little Gem is a miniature version.

Cos Lettuce is believed to have originated on the Greek Island of Kos.

Romaine (Cos) lettuce is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), vitamin K, folate and molybdenum. In addition, romaine lettuce is a very good source of dietary fibre, manganese, potassium, biotin, vitamin B1, copper, iron and vitamin C. It is also a good source of vitamin B2, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B6, phosphorus, chromium, magnesium, calcium and pantothenic acid. 
Romaine (Cos) lettuce will keep for five to seven days. To clean lettuce, first remove the outer leaves and with one slice cut off the tips of the lettuce since they tend to be bitter. Chop the remaining lettuce to the desired size and discard the bottom root portion. Rinse and pat dry or use a salad spinner if you have one available to remove the excess water.

That stuffing sounds really interesting. I think it would be a lovely addition to a baked mushroom.

These look good. I'll have to remember this for when I go back to chicken. (We have so much covid in packing plants I've sworn off chicken and meat for awhile.)
