Stuffed Mushrooms

Are you one of those people that loves mushrooms or are you one that hates them? I feel like most people are either strongly on one side of the fence or the other when it comes to these little guys.

Mushrooms used to be something that I did not like when I was younger (I think it was a textural thing?), but now I absolutely love. Especially when they are stuffed full of goodness.

These stuffed ‘shrooms are pretty decadent and are perfect for a fancy date night in or to take for an appetizer at a party.

  7. If you have any remaining stuffing for the mushrooms, you can refrigerate up to 3 days. To use, place the stuffing mixture into a skillet and allow to heat up thoroughly before stuffing on top of the mushrooms.
