Again, major annoyance at having to take dinner photos under harsh lighting thanks to dark fall nights...sorry for crappy pics! Anytime I start to make stuffed mushrooms, my mom will repeat the adage: "Life's too short to stuff a mushroom." Well, that's because stuffed mushroom recipes are usually time-consuming and laborious, but this one will take you no more than 10 minutes to prepare, so what's stopping you? I have always made stuffed mushrooms using individual button mushrooms filled with a herb-and-garlic cream cheese mixture and they are delicious! Then I made Kate's leek stuffed mushrooms, which were also wonderful and made with portobellos, so they're more filling as an actual meal and not just an appetizer. So I merged the two, added a few extra ingredients and came up with my best mushroom recipe yet!
