With the holiday’s coming up, I was thinking about my favorite kinds of appetizers and finger foods I would like to make. One of my absolute faves is stuffed mushrooms.
I could easily pop like five of those suckers in without realizing. Since most recipes call for cream cheese or shredded cheese, I wanted to lighten mine up so it was okay to have more than a couple. These babies didn’t last long in my house.
These are really easy to make and you can even do the filling the night before your party and them fill and bake the mushrooms right before your guests arrive.
