Leslie's Stuffed Mushrooms
Leslie Speed Dutton
My family and friends cannot get enough of these. When I used to make them to take to parties, people that loved mushrooms (and some that didn't) begged for my recipe.
DO NOT ever wash mushrooms under water since they act like sponges. ALWAYS use a brush, like a gentle paint brush or basting brush to clean dirt off of mushrooms.
This can be made ahead 24 hours ahead of time.
