This is, without a doubt in my mind, one of the tastier stuffed mushroom recipes I've tried. Didn't have fresh spinach so I substituted bok choy, everything else was according to the recipe and it was a hit in this household.
We loved these. I made using lg. portabella mushrooms and made enough to fill 2. My DD and I enjoyed these so much! Thanks!
I halved the recipe and more than enough to fill 4 large portafino mushrooms each weighing 100g, actually I think I could have filled 6 quite generously. The DM and I enjoyed our 2 each for lunch but agreed 1 1/2 each would have been adequate. I couldn't get gruyere so used swiss and my lemon was huge and I got nearly 1/2 cup of juice, used a 1/4 cup but use halve that again. Thank you Bella14Ragazza for a great lunch, made for Photo Tag, Fall 2008.
