Just tried this recipe for an Iowa State game day gathering. You all know I don’t like to be in the kitchen when we’re having people over! I made these the night before and popped them in before our friends got here. It worked out great, everyone loved them and I’ll be putting them on my to 10 favorite appetizer list!

My favorite recipes come from community and church cookbooks – you know people only submit their best recipes so they are tried and true…not like some of the Pinterest fails I’ve tried! Check those boxes in your attic and see if you have any cookbooks laying around!

Stem the mushrooms and hollow out the caps slightly with a a spoon. Be careful when you do this – they do break easily.

Then, add bread crumbs and mix well.
