Roasted Portabello Mushrooms with Blue Cheese

Rating: Unrated
Meaty portabellos are topped with blue cheese. Great as an appetizer, or build a burger with crusty rolls, red onion slices, lettuce and tomato. I chopped the mushroom stems, sauteed them, and added them to the hamburger patties we barbecued. Yum, yum!

Mushroom Bouchees

Rating: Unrated
These are perfect, bite-size mushroom appetizers that are always a hit at parties and family gatherings alike. Even the little ones love them - just don't tell them they're made with mushrooms! The recipe comes from a French-Canadian grandmother whose kitchen creations are magnifique.

Hot and Spicy Stuffed Mushrooms

Rating: Unrated
Cheese, bacon, and peppers! I usually throw an habanero in when we are making it just for us. These are also great with a salad for dinner. This filling is also a good stuffing for jalapenos.

Mushroom Bundles

Rating: Unrated
These are absolutely scrumptious, and can be made with either phyllo dough or puff pastry. I prefer to make these with puff pastry, as it's easier to work with. Cook the mushrooms in sherry rather than white wine. Personal preference only!

Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms

Rating: Unrated
Just something a little different from the clam-based stuffing(s). Basic recipe you can change to suit your personal tastes. I usually cook and stir the mushrooms in butter before stuffing, but that's just my preference. The guys LOVE these during football/dart nights.

Perfect Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms

Rating: Unrated
These little goodies are the perfect addition to your next holiday gathering or even the perfect appetizer to serve before a cozy dinner at home. Everyone will be dazzled by every delicious bite (they won't be able to keep their hands off of them!) You can smile while you think of how easy they were to toss together! And the best part - I usually end up with leftover stuffing, which freezes beautifully until the next carry-in!

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Rating: Unrated
This tasty appetizer seasoned with thyme, oregano, and savory. Choose good sized mushrooms, about 2 inches across. When cleaning mushrooms, don't run them under water. They are like little sponges, and will absorb it; just wipe them clean with a damp towel. The filling can be made with fresh, canned, or imitation crabmeat. If using canned, be sure to rinse it first.
