"forgot to mention that I top the mushrooms with sliced mozzarella the last 5 mins of cooking."

"I have made these mushrooms for years now. They are so delicious. When my husband and I separated this was one of the recipes he asked for :)"

"We added 1/2 C. Hormel peppered bacon (already cooked and in a bag) to the ingredients then topped each mushroom with some bacon before cooking. It added immensely to the flavor and appearance! We also used chopped green onions to enhance the appearance as well."

"Wow! These were surprisingly good! I used summer sausage so the stuffing had a smoky flavor. I only used a few mushroom stems just because I didn't want the mushroom to over-power the minced summer sausage. I will, for sure, keep this recipe to make again!"

"Delicious! I used crab meat in place of the sausage. My family loved them!"
