  • Bake in the preheated oven 7 to 10 minutes, until lightly brown.

Ok I liked this recipe but only gave 4 stars because you should NEVER soak mushrooms. All that does is add more moisture to them....and makes them soggy. They were a little dry but the flavor is nice. I will probably add to my recipe file...and make again. Thanks for the post. Read More

This recipe tremendously dissapointed me..I feel that the mushrooms were over wet..and that the celery played a horrible part in the overall dish. The filling left much to be desired..there are numerous changes to be made to this..please do not try this at home unless under the eye of a trained professional...It was incredibly bland...I am glad I experimented before serving to guests.

NEVER, EVER, soak mushrooms in water! This is a definite no no when preparing them as they'll end up soaking up all that water. Simply wipe them with a damp paper towel. The filling was very good, although I cheated and used Boursin herbed cream cheese instead of having to add my own seasonings. I also took it a step further and placed the mushrooms on a small square of Phyllo dough and wrapped them up into little bundles before I baked. Very nice appetizer Lynda and thanks! Read More

Not a big fan of this recipie. Soaking them in water and lemon made them extremely watery. They were bursing with water when we ate them. Also the uncooked onion and celery made for an unpleasant crunchy texture. They were also bland. Read More

This is a great recipe. I did change a few things though. I skipped the soaking in lemon juice and pouring the water over the mushrooms. Then I added 1-2 cloves of garlic and near the end of baking time I topped with mozzarella cheese until browned. Read More
