Truthfully, I’m not a huge fan of mushrooms, but I love these Mouthwatering Stuffed Mushrooms! And when I say I love the, I mean, a lot!
The filling for these mushrooms can be made several days ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. It can even be made ahead and frozen. Just be sure to bring it back to room temperature before stuffing the mushrooms.
The filling holds it shape pretty well during cooking, so don’t be afraid to generously stuff those mushrooms caps. I usually fill the caps, and then add another generous spoonful of filling on top of that. The number of servings you get from the recipe will depend somewhat on the size of your mushrooms, but I usually get close to 30. However many it is, it never seems to be enough!
