Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed Mushrooms

Here goes another great and easy Holiday appetizer recipe. The stuffing is pretty much the same as for the Stuffed Artichokes recipe I posted last week, except the stems of the mushrooms are chopped up, sautéed with onion, and added to the stuffing.

  1. These stuffed mushrooms are little buttons of deliciousness. Good stuff. You’ve presented it so professionally!

  2. This is a great finger food recipe to have and share with my upcoming Christmas parties. Really looks delicious!

  3. This is the recipe I have used for years, handed down from my grandmothers and mother. One difference is I add some crumbled cooked Italian sausage and a dash of red wine to the stuffing mixtures. It comes out fantastic.

  4. In the past I have used a sweet Italian sausage stuffing. Take it out of the package, roll it into balls, stuff it and bake. Quick and simple.

  8. I made these last week and they were delicious! Just like the ones being served at a local Italian restaurant here in our area, which is quite popular for their stuffed mushrooms. My husband was quite impressed that I was able to replicate them 🙂 your site’s been my main go-to reference for authentic Italian dishes. Your bolognese and spaghetti & meatball recipes are favorites of my boys. Thank you for the wonderful recipes. Keep up the good work!

  9. Great recipe, but I looked at one of the comments/reviews which added a bit of red wine to the mixture. I did this on a hunch that it would add to the flavors, and it turned out really great!

  10. Delicious. A hit at the party we brought them to.

  11. Great recipes!
