This is a wonderful dish that can be served with almost any main course. These mushrooms stuffed with shrimp and topped with melted Cheddar cheese go really will with Italian food. I love them!

This recipe was really very good - it made for a great appetizer. The stuffing is a little too "cream-cheesy" (and we used light cream cheese too). It might work better with a little less. Read More

I used this recipe as an appetizer for my cafe and it was a huge success! Everyone ate them and raved about how delicious they were. To help the mushrooms from becoming shriveled or dried out I sauteed them first in butter but you can also brush the sides with butter while they are baking. Huge crowd pleaser very easy to make and simply delicious! Read More

This was a great recipe! It was so easy to prepare yet so tasty! I did substitute a mozzarella cheese for the cheddar but they turned out great! Read More

This recipe was great. Everyone thought they tasted gourmet. I used a little extra crackers and less cream cheese to taste but they were wonderful! Read More

EASY! I used bacon bits in place of the cracker crumbs to reduce carbs and low fat cream cheese. Read More

We loved these. I made them as an appy for our Thanksgiving dinner. I did have to make a substitution out of necessity - I couldn't find bacon flavored crackers anywhere. I used herb crackers (Sociables) and added some diced bacon to get the bacon flavor. I made these the night before and refrigerated then added the cheddar cheese right before putting them in the oven. They did take longer to bake but I believe this is due to being refrigerated. Thanks for a keeper recipe! Read More
