      Delicious!!!!!!! We loved these. Made these as a snack before dinner but we liked it so much I heated up the rest and we ate them for dinner. I used 8 oz of cremini mushrooms and 4 oz of shiitake (those were the size packages I could find). I am not a huge fan of bleu cheese so I only used 1/4 cup and added 1/4 cup of fresh grated parmesan. So good!!!!

      OMG! This is an amazing recipe! I cut the recipe in half as there was just two of us and we finished every last bite! I also used only shiitake mushrooms. This is a recipe that deserves more than 5 stars. I will keep this recipe with me forever, thanks Susie!
