We were very impressed with these stuffed mushrooms. The chopped stems, when cooked, soak up all the savory flavors and give the stuffing the perfect amount of moisture. Garlic and Parmesan give the mushrooms an Italian flair and the homemade bread crumbs give a nice texture. Cheddar cheese melted on top adds that extra sharpness that puts them over the top. These stuffed mushrooms are so good, you can't eat just one.
