This is a very good recipe. I did change a few things. I used 1/2 stick butter instead of oil and added 1/2 chopped onion and quite a bit of bread crumbs. The bread crumbs made it more "stuffing like". I've made these 3 times, always using this recipe for the base and everyone loves them! Even the kids!

Very basic mushroom recipe. They were okay, but needed more flavor. A little Tabasco goes a long way to help that.

Good, but I like to pour a little melted butter over the top when they come out of the oven so they're really moist and yummy.
