Reviews for Shrimp and Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
"These were pretty good. Nobody really raved about them at my party, but those who like mushrooms enjoyed them. I have never worked with goat cheese before and found the cheese log a little difficult to crumble. I ended up working the ingredients with my hand into a ball which was easy to work with. Overall it was fast and easy appetizer. Maybe a little chopped garlic would be good if I decide to make these again."
