Mom's Shrimp-stuffed Mushrooms
I have had my fair share of stuffed mushrooms and these are some of the best! There is no party food quite like stuffed mushrooms. Even those who aren’t mushroom aficionados are surprised how good they are when they try a stuffed mushroom cap at a party. They are always a huge hit at parties and with the Super Bowl being a week from today, they would be just perfect.
This is another of Mom’s great recipes. Mushrooms were one of her favorite foods, right up there with strawberries and we were served mushrooms of different versions often. These mushroom caps are stuffed with a heavenly mixture of shrimp and cheese, and then baked until they are a sizzling, golden color. They are easy to make too!
Shrimp-stuffed Mushrooms are a great tasty morsel that would be perfect for almost any occasion. OK, maybe not breakfast, but they would fill the bill at brunch, as an appetizer before a formal dinner or a cook-out in your back yard. I bet you won’t be able to eat just one!
