These are herby and good!! I used lemon and German thyme, basil, plus oregano all from my garden. Instead of butter, I used extra virgin olive oil and it worked out great!I added some kosher salt to the mix before I stuffed my mushrooms, and I'm glad that I did because the mushrooms needed salt. I found that you must serve these immediately because the goat cheese starts to crumble if you don't but luckily, we ate them all up!! Thanks for the recipe!!
