I love these stuffed mushrooms for a light appetizer. I, too, like that they are not stuffed with meat. My husband used to refuse to touch mushrooms and this recipe converted him to a mushroom eater! To me, they smell almost like pizza when they are baking. I think it was the smell that tempted him to try one. My mom used to make these from a recipe in an old church community cookbook. Our recipe varies slightly in that it does not call for greasing the pan or adding oil to the tops of the mushrooms, and uses 1 slice of crumbled bread in place of the dry breadcrumbs. I love cheese so I can not resist adding shredded mozzarella to the tops!
YUM! Of course I increased the garlic a bit, lol. I liked that there was no butter or meat involved. Great little starter or side dish!
