Mushroom Stuffed Mushrooms

February 23, 2011

These are my fast and go to stuffed mushrooms when I have not planned on some fancy stuffing (I do love those fancy stuffings though) and yet these are still one of the best for everyday meals.  I generally always have fresh mushrooms in my house as I use them for so many recipes and as you can see here just lovely all by themselves.
