Stuffed Mushrooms, a Family Favorite

I love to put a spin on an original recipe! This is why I am not a good baker. Baking requires discipline and precise measurements. If you’re baking, you have to be a rule follower!

I grew up in a house that was creative in the kitchen. Our family worked with what ingredients we had in the house at the time. If a recipe called for one kind of cheese and we did not have it, we substituted with another kind of cheese. We were Chopped Champions before the hit show came about :)

Mushroom stuffing can be most versatile. I put a few combo favorites of my own together that we used growing up. Hope you enjoy!
