There are many different kinds of edible mushrooms, but when it comes to making stuffed mushrooms you only need a certain kind and they are found at your local grocery store. There are numerous different kinds of stuffed mushrooms you can make, and more so if you feel like getting really crazy in the kitchen. For example, your neighbor may make some delicious Cheese and Herb Stuffed Portobello, while you decided on S'mores Stuffed Mushrooms. For the record, I searched hard for an actual recipe for S'mores Stuffed Mushrooms but I couldn't find any. Now, that doesn't mean that a recipe doesn't exist (because I'm sure it does) it just means that it isn't popular enough to show up...yet. Maybe a new kind of sweet stuffed mushroom recipe can be your contribution towards today's holiday. I did find something close with this recipe, and all you'd have to do is replace the apples with mushrooms...it could work. For a list of different kinds of stuffed mushrooms, click here.
