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

"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."

"Nice. Here is my vegetarian recipe: Soak some bread crumbs in about 1/2 a cup of white wine, twist mushroom stems from the caps and mince them, add cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, a bit of grated Swiss, a bit of salt. Mix, stuff mushrooms and bake at 425 degrees until browned on top. I love the flavor of the wine in the stuffing so use a good white wine. If you don't like wine use Better Than Bouillon's vegetarian soup base instead.

Sorry I don't have exact measurements, I always wing it. O.K. for me after many years of cooking. : )"

"Absolutely delicious and SHOK it appears the mushrooms she is using are large white button mushrooms. Those are the mushrooms I use when making any stuffed mushrooms"

"These look delicious, but I'd like to know what kind of mushrooms work the best since it doesn't say a kind. To: Chocolateandnuts, what kind to you use?"
