Merry-Merry-Christmas Eve! One of our favorite quick appetizers are these Italian Stuffed Mushrooms. They usually show up at all holiday celebrations because they are so easy to make. You can even throw them together early in the day and bake them off right as guests are arriving.
Having a hot appetizer that is so easy to make is a godsend on party day. I often double the recipe because they disappear so fast.
I hope you have a great day, have to get back to cooking as I am going to be making my Lobster Bisque, it's just not the holidays without it.
Stems are removed and caps are washed and dried.
This stuffing mixture is easily put together and consists of things I almost always have in the kitchen.
