"I've been making these tasty morsels for years and they've always been a crowd pleaser. I always keep some in the freezer during the holidays, for unexpected guests. Try adding Worcestershire, hot sauce or Cajun seasoning to give them a little more kick. Make them your own. "

Wow! Delicious mushroom appetizer or side dish! I cooked the bacon yesterday morning reserving bacon and reserved 2 tablespoons of the drippings to be used last night for dinner. I also used half the pack of large button mushrooms for this recipe as there were only two of us eating them. I also used them as a side dish for London broil. In addition I added some sharp cheddar to each mushroom cup. If you love mushrooms, then you will love this great recipe. This is definitely going into my keeper folder. Made for Billboard tag.
