These can be served as an appetizer or a side dish for the main meal.

The stuffing for the stuffed mushrooms is easy to make. Use your imagination and change the recipe with a little more of this, a little less of that, or some completely different ingredient, but the base is always the same…chopped mushroom stems, seasonings, bread crumbs or panko…
