    This recipe was a hit at my daughter's baby shower. I made a change by adding 2 pieces of toasted bread diced small. It helped absorb some of the oils. I also cooked the mushroom caps in a little olive oil before stuffing them so they were nice and tender when done. Great tasting mushrooms!  -  29 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were very good . I might suggest that when a recipe calls for crumbled bacon, that it is much easier to slice the bacon into small pieces before you cook them .  -  13 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Fantastic! These were an AWESOME change from the recipe that I usually use. My entire family loved these (excluding my non-"fungus" friendly brother). I used real bacon bits & I skipped the oven step & microwaved them for 5 minutes...perfect! I suggest using a melon baller to remove the stem, it makes it so much easier. Thank you Krista, you're a "shroom" godess!  -  31 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
