Herb and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

I had a revelation this week. And it was this: Moving sucks. (A lot.)

We finally have the kitchen unpacked enough to eat things besides cold leftover takeout, and although no room is “finished” we’ve managed to assemble a coffee table and hook up our tv (wahoo!) so it’s almost like we’re real people now.

And then there are these herb and cheese stuffed mushrooms: super simple. Super tasty. Require little to no actual counter space and very minimal dishwashing. WIN.

Also, I have unpacked these awesome rooster trivets that I found at Salvation Army a few weeks ago, which meant I could let the mushrooms cool off a bit in super-stylish fashion:

And, since I’ve assembled a kitchen workspace AND located my camera battery charger (win #2), you can expect a barrage of recipes comin’ atcha. The stuffed mushrooms are just the beginning, folks. It’s about to get CRAZY. As crazy as watching three movies in a row instead of unpacking anything just because you discover your TV now has OnDemand. Not that that happened.

    Sounds so yummy!! I was just thinking of serving up stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer for Thanksgiving dinner and this sounds like it might do the trick! Thanks! :)

    These photos are BEAUTIFUL! I want to lick my monitor right now… but of course I won’t…. might not… Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe and photos. My tip? Try the brown Crimini mushrooms next time for a little added flavour!

      Thanks, Shannon! It’s tough to find much mushroom variation in my teeny Midwest town, but you can bet the second I see criminis I will be ALL. OVER. IT. Sometimes I can get portobellos, which are also great with this recipe. Thanks for the tip!

    do you have DiStefano buratta in your neck o’ the woods? if I ever visit I will bring you the creamiest, most sensuous it’s-so-crazy-I-can’t-even-call-it-mozzarella cheese. Just gooey enough, just this side of a triple creme and I mean runny. Only the best thing with garden tomatoes and basil. You’ll never even look at the white rubber tire mozzarella again.
