I didn't intend on making stuffed mushrooms when I bought the package of white mushrooms in the market.
And I usually wouldn't make stuffed mushrooms in the summer. Actually, I usually only make them for special occasions, but I guess I went a little crazy and stuffed away!
Why not, who needs a holiday or event to enjoy something you love?
The recipe is by Giada DE Laurantiis who hosts Everyday Italian. No she's not related to me ( I mention her quite often), I just happen to like many of her recipes.
It is a very simple recipe and uses ingredients that are always on hand.
The only thing I did different is added some chopped mushroom stems to the stuffing. I figured why waste them. Ok two things, I omitted the mint. I don't usually have that on hand.
Do you have a recipe that you reserve for holidays or special occasions?
