Stuffed Mushroom Caps

Want to be the life of the party? Just make some of these Stuffed Mushroom Caps to take along and everyone will know you're a fun guy. (Fungi - get it?)

This is not the time to cheap out by going out to pick wild mushrooms though. Unless you're an expert on wild mushrooms, you might end up getting quite the opposite effect from being the "life" of the party.

These Stuffed Mushroom Caps are soooo good, you'll be tempted to call them "Magic Mushrooms". You probably shouldn't though as some people may get the wrong idea. Not everyone knows how to manage their expectations.
