Reviews for Appetizer Stuffed Mushrooms
"I made them for my family and they loved them. Make them by the recipe then adjust to your families tastes. You'll enjoy it......"
"Quick and easy and I used croutons instead of toasting the bread."
"What I really liked about this recipe was the fact that it highlighted just the mushrooms. The filling was simple and quick. I made these a few hours ahead before baking them for my valentine's dinner, and they made the meal more special. [I substituted finely diced sweet onion for the green onions.]"
"I found you needed a few more mushrooms to use as stuffing. I also cooked the veggies very well to prevent sogginess. and the bread cubes I made VERY tiny...Delish"
"I made a dish using portabello mushrooms,swiss cheese,sharp cheddar, and garlic. They were yummy and filling!"
"This recipe looked good. . . The bread cubes were soggy and the best I can say is that the recipe was totally bland."
