Stuffed mushrooms are a classic appetizer and very easy to make. Though there are plenty of variations out there.
Recently, one of my friends was there at my place with her kids and she gave me the challenge to make her kids eat vegetables. So, I made this whole mushrooms stuffed with broccoli, bell pepper, sweet corn, green onion, and to make it look tempting, sprinkled some grated cheese on top and plated it colorful.
Believe me, within few minutes all the mushrooms got vanished and they asked me, Aunty, can I have more. At times handling kids are really challenging.
Since that day my friends keep on asking me for the recipes. I am sharing the recipe with you all so that you can also make it at home and make your guest happy.
These easy Stuffed mushrooms are loaded with flavor, could not be any easier. They have a simple filling topped with cheese. You could try other combinations as well. I use the great big button mushrooms but for a party, you certainly could use the smaller mushrooms and this recipe will do wonder.
