I have to say I’m a little picky when it comes to stuffed mushrooms and I like our version my family makes the best. Trying to be the bigger person I have branched out and seen it isn’t so bad having other versions. I’m not the biggest fan of meat in the mushrooms, but this one was pretty tasty and super easy to make ahead of time which my version takes longer to do.
