Stuffed Mushroom Recipes That Win The Prize For Best Holiday Appetizer

Around this time of year we start to stuff every ingredient in our kitchens into mushrooms.

It is around this time of year that we start to want to stuff every ingredient in our kitchens into mushrooms. Stuffed mushrooms have cast a special kind of spell on us. They are the earthy, comforting, old-school treat we always forget about until winter-time. But now, stuffed mushroom season is in full swing.

Maybe we love them so much right now because they're the perfect appetizer -- a hand-held, delicious edible vessel for other delicious things in a world of holiday cocktail parties. You don't need a toothpick, or really even a plate. Just a free hand and, if your stuffed mushrooms are as gooey and amazing as the ones below, plenty of napkins.
