Every Christmas Eve, I bring out a platter of my fresh-from-the-oven mushrooms. When you want a change, consider fixing the sausage and cream cheese filling all by itself—it's good spread on baguette slices and crackers. —Debby Beard, Eagle, Colorado

"They were good but maybe missing something and I just put my finger on what. If I do decide to make these again I will try adding some white wine like others have suggested."

"Definitely won't make these again. There are so many better stuffed mushroom recipes out there. They were very dry and not very flavorful."

"Wish I'd read the reviews; I love the idea of adding white wine! We don't like mushrooms, but I added a small can of finely diced mushrooms, baked it in an oven-safe serving dish, and served with baguette slices."

"I made these but used feta cheese instead of cream cheese. No bread crumbs. TASTY"

"Delicious and easy. I prepared these yesterday to serve today on Thanksgiving. Everyone really enjoyed them. I took the advice of the other reviewers and added some chopped red pepper and I soaked the bread crumbs in 1/4 cup of white wine before adding it to the pork and cheese mixture. I will definitely be making these again."

"I love, Love, LOVE these! I'm not a huge fan of mushrooms but these were loaded with stuffing and the flavors were perfect. I loved the cream cheese taste with the basil flavor. The only thing I might add next time is some chopped red bell peppers."

"I made these for Christmas Eve and another party. I made the sausage mixture ahead of time and kept it refrigerated. They were certainly hit! Delicious and something different than what I usually see at parties."
