16 Stuffed Mushrooms: A “Classic” That’s Never Out of Style!

Am I the only one who loves the cocktail hour more than the main course at a party? Seriously, I love finger foods—and while I certainly admire (and happily consume) the latest trends in cocktail fare, my heart belongs to the “classics:”

Deviled eggs.

Shrimp Cocktail.

Pigs in blankets.

Swedish meatballs.

And of course, stuffed mushrooms.

These little breadcrumb-cheese-herb stuffed veggies never fail, and I am so excited to share the following fabulous recipes for stuffed mushrooms with you! Some are quite traditional, others more inventive, but all are sure to impress.

So make a batch of Manhattans, throw on some Frank Sinatra, and “bring back the mushroom!”
