Why use Casa M Spice Pecking Order?

Casa M Spice Pecking Order is the perfect combination of spices. It’s all done for you! I absolutely adore their spices! Especially the Chain Reaction one. Plus by simply replacing your salt shaker on your table with Pecking Order or any of their spices, you reduce your sodium intake by 80% with no perceivable loss in flavor. 

Ideas for healthy stuffed mushrooms

These healthy stuffed mushrooms do not contain cream cheese or bread crumbs like many of the other stuffed mushroom recipes do. I’ve cut calories by using less butter as well. If you’re vegetarian, you can easily make this a vegetarian stuffed mushroom recipe by omitting the bacon.

Can you make this baked stuffed mushroom recipe ahead of time?

Yes, you can make the filling and stuff the mushrooms ahead of time and bake them when you’re ready! Don’t stuff them more than a few days ahead though. In addition they actually taste pretty well reheated although I do prefer to serve them fresh out of the oven.

You can use any size mushroom. There’s quite a difference between these two. One makes the perfect meal, the other the perfect appetizer. Just be sure they are the same size so they cook evenly.

Clean and prepare your mushrooms. Wipe off the excess dirt with a damp paper towel. Then pop off the stems. Finely chop the stems for later and be sure and save them, they are part of the filling.

Chop onions and place in a nonstick skillet (paid link) with the garlic and 1 tablespoon of butter. By using the nonstick skillet (paid link), you don’t need to use too much butter but you still get all the flavor. Sauté until onions are brown and caramelized.
