Reviews for Prosciutto-Stuffed Mushrooms
"loved the taste but will mix cheese in with mixture because the mozzarella slides off the top when you cut into it. made it with fresh toasted bread crumbs to absorb more of the flavours. all in all a new favorite!"
"I prepared this recipe as an appetizer for a steak dinner I served to friends and family. They were a hit. I actually don't care for mushrooms; but the stuffing is so delicious, I was even able to enjoy the mushroom with it. The mushroom lovers in the group were very impressed and really enjoyed them! I will definitely make this again. They'd be great for a party, especially since you can make them up ahead of time and then just pop them in the oven."
