"Love, love, love this recipe. I did make minor changes. I used Italian flavored bread crumbs from Aldi; I added garlic to the onion mixture, and I also put in Italian seasonings. I put a tad bit of Olive oil in the pan and rolled the mushrooms in that before stuffing. The OO gave it another taste which was great."

"I really liked this recipe! Only 2 changes: I just had Panko bread crumbs available, so I used those. I'd sprinkled cayenne pepper on mushrooms after baking them! Next time I know to add the cayenne pepper to mushroom mixture before baking! This recipe makes a great appetizer and I found it very simple to prepare!"
