Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are one of the easiest appetizers to make. Since white mushrooms have such a mellow flavor, you can fill them with just about anything and they are delicious. I decided to make stuffed mushrooms for a dinner not too long ago and for some reason the idea of blue cheese was stuck in my head. I searched high and low for a recipe I that sounded good, but alas, the internet failed me, so I decided to come up with my own. Success! You could put blue cheese, garlic or paprika on just about anything and I will probably love it, but when the three are combined, I will definitely love it. The flavors all went really well together and every bite was a bit tangy, a bit smokey and totally delicious.
