Cheddar Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms

In my husband's family, we have a tradition of making a variety of appetizers as our meal for Christmas Eve. My sister-in-law brought these one year and they have been one of our favorites ever since. I don't generally use the large stuffing mushrooms, though you can if you're serving this as a first or second course in a formal dinner. Instead I use regular button mushrooms so 15 or so people can have two or three each.

    This was pretty good but it came out a little dry for my taste. The only part of the filling I could really taste was the bread crumbs.

    made as recipe states though I had to substitute colby-jack for the cheddar as I had none. It was fabulous. Best served hot, so cook them last if possible. DEEE lish!

    This is a good basic recipe, but we like a little more zip. I added finely chopped celery, rosemary & thyme, and more black pepper; I'd like to try adding crumbled turkey bacon too.

    These are a hit. It makes a lot of stuffing so buy 2-3 packages of mushrooms.
