Stuffed mushrooms are the key to fungus-lovers’ hearts and the gateway to overcoming hatred of them. Filled with creamy and savory flavors, mushroom bites are a decadent but quick appetizer or snack sure to impress even the pickiest of palates. Even Salty (king of the fungus hate group), loves them. If you have leftover stuffing, it is great on toast with some melted cheese on top!
