Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe
Raw, Grilled or Baked?

I love making a stuffed mushrooms recipe for a weekend brunch or TV upper dish . But if you want to be super sophisticated you also serve them as a starter or hors d'oeuvre. 

Let's start by making some nibbles from fresh raw mushrooms, with a choice of fillings, then we will move on to a Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms recipe and finally stuffed mushroom caps cooked in the oven.

For more mushroom recipes see the list at the bottom of the page.
