"So much flavor and simple to make! The perfect side dish or appetizer!"
"Recipe has great flavors and easy to make. Will be making these for Super Bowl!"
"Honestly these are perfect as is and I mean PERFECT! We have added these to our favorites list and make them about once a month now!"
"These were a hit with everyone in my family, even those that came not to like mushrooms! I love stuffed mushrooms but most recipes have so many steps that I rarely make them because it just adds to time in the kitchen for an appetizer. These went together very quickly and tasted great to boot."
"These mushrooms were easy and delicious. I even forgot to put in the garlic. I think they would even taste better. I will make them again and again."
"These were AWESOME! I made two batches and brought them to a party. They were gobbled up in no time. Will definitely make again!!"
"These were amazing! Made them for Christmas Eve and everyone Loved them! Super easy to make and tasteful! Will make again and again!!"
"These are a favorite in our group of friends. I have made them twice in the past week for different parties! I have a feeling they will be a permanent staple at all our events...easy and delicious. Time saver too because you can assemble early in the day, then just cook them before serving!"
"I love stuffed mushrooms and this recipe had such an elegant twist. I served these with a risotto verde and herbed scones. They we deliciously meaty and everyone loved them!"
"Needs to have more garlic for the taste"
"Delicious and very easy to make! Had some filling left over and my husband used it as a cracker spread... yummy!"
"Made this using portabella mushrooms. Great appetizer or side for steak. Also great with an escargot nested in the filling using button mushrooms for an appetizer. Next time i will brush the mushrooms with oil and grill them until tender first. The time required in the oven is shorter as all you have to do is heat everything through. The filling is less runny this way. Overall, excellent. definitely a keeper."
"Made this for just my husband and self -- no leftovers! It's amazing. I used low-fat cream cheese, cut the blue cheese by half, and used turkey bacon to save a bit on the fat."
"This recipe was a wonderful side for Tenderloin"
"I made these stuffed mushrooms for awork party, and everyone enjoyed them. i made them as recipe follows, however the taste of blue cheese was somewhat overpowering, so i added jimmy dean sausage to the mix and they were spectacular!"
"Just had to add this- I made the mushrooms a few days ago and my husband has been BEGGING me to make again! I will need to go to the store and get the ingredients again!"
"Easy to make and absolutely excellent. I used two containers of mushrooms and could have probably stretched the filling for three. VERY GOOD!"
