How to Make Stuffed Mushroom Recipe #holidays #appetizers #mushrooms #party

And this stuffed mushroom recipe is so easy to whip up. Simply pop the stems off your mushrooms, stir the filling, spoon it in the mushroom cavities, and sprinkle with panela cheese.

California Panela Cheese is the secret weapon in this stuffed mushroom recipe, because it melts, bubbles and toasts into a marvelous crust that holds all the chorizo goodness inside.

And the California cream cheese unites the chorizo, mushrooms, and thyme in such a wonderful way, my only complaint is that each mushroom holds just a spoonful of filling.

Using high quality cheese, like those produced in California makes this simple stuffed mushrooms recipe really shine!

    cream cheese-stuffed jalapenos, wrapped in bacon, baked til bacon is crisp & jalapeno is tender. cream cheese filling is fantastic on its own, however, if you are ambitious you can sprinkle the bacon with brown sugar before baking.

    My recent favorite is a Sommer recipe: Brie and Pear tart. when I cut it into small slices it’s an appetizer; wider slices, it becomes a first course. Every time I serve this appetizer, I get tons of compliments. I have tried different cheeses and cheese combos, such as mozzarella + a stronger cheese, or a smoked + a more mild cheese.)
