Stuffed Mushrooms With Leeks, Blue Cheese and Walnuts.

"A really simple and tasty dish that is so versatile and open to so many interpretations. Great for a starter, side or snack dish, or why not stick it into a bun for a veggie burger! I've used toasted pine nuts, but hazelnuts would be good too. Stilton and Cambezola cheese work really well too and Cheddar is an obvious choice if you don't do blue cheese. I bet fresh mozzarella would be great too. Chopped bacon can also be added to the leek for another variation."

    I liked the simplicity of this recipe. It was very easy to put together and would make a terrific appetizer. I used portabella mushrooms and for the cheese, I chose feta. I baked these at 375F and they were nicely done after 15 minutes. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag. Thanks! :)

    Really good and easy to make, as well! I followed the recipe, and added chopped bacon, baked at 400 degrees. Thanks for posting, Noo!

    YUMMY! Very easy to make and wonderfully versatile. I made these for lunch with three friends and doubled the recipe and, even though these mushrooms were served with several other dishes, they were all eaten with great gusto and demands for the recipe! A resounding success by any standards! I added to the leeks, half an onion minced, 4 cloves of minced garlic, some fresh thyme and - as Noo had suggested - a couple of rashers of chopped bacon. I used half and half mozzarella and cheddar - my guests probably would have liked blue cheese but I don't. The walnuts were a great addition. All in all a wonderful blend of flavours and certainly a recipe I shall be making again. Thank you for sharing another super recipe Noo!
