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!!

These are just delicious! A great hos d'oeuvres or side dish. I used chevre. Very simple yet sophisticated. Reviewed for ZaarTag.
