This recipe was adopted by me in February 2005 - I have revised this recipe to that of my mother's (a certified chef). It is always a favorite in our home for parties and holiday gatherings and I hope you enjoy it too.

good flavor in this recipe but something was amiss. i'll omit the lime juice next time and maybe throw in a drop of worcheshire instead. i stuffed the filling into two huge portabello mushrooms, sprinkled the cheese on top and popped it into the oven: 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
A lovely side dish! I used 6 very large portabello mushrooms and omitted the wine as I didn't have any. We thought the mushrooms were very flavourful. Thanks for the great recipe!
I have used these recipe many times and they just rock! Love the fact that it's not all BREAD crumbs and stems! Last weekend I had a party and tried to make them ahead (1 day) and they turned out perfect! What I did was toss the mushroom caps in olive oil and S&P, put them in a 350 oven and roasted for 5/8 minutes. I then turned the caps upside down to drain.. and when cooled stuffed them. Put them in a tin roasting pan, covered and kept in the frig. The next evening, I took them out - let them stand at room temp. for 10 - 15 min. then baked at 350 for 15 mins. My guests were awed and commented on them being the best - the bacon added to the flavor but the kicker was the wine - very subtle. (I also doubled the recipe) Had only 5 leftover and tonight reheated for hubby. I actually liked them made ahead. Flavors mellowed.
