Oh man, these are good!!! We had to stop ourselves from eating so many!!! I love the mushroom filling, it is creamy and has great texture!! I used portobello mushrooms with a few button mushrooms thrown in. These really did "puff" in the oven and the filling looked so pretty coming out of the middle of each puff. Thanks for this great appetizer recipe!!!! Will make again!!!
These are yummy. I have made them with the addition of 1/4 cup bleu cheese crumbles, and it is a memorable addition.
