These cheesy stuffed mushrooms are the perfect compliment to any holiday party that will surely impress your guests!
These were so much easier to make than I anticipated. I rarely cook with fresh mushrooms, I’m not sure why since they are readily available at my local produce store, except they don’t stay fresh long. Well I am so glad I tried this recipe because not only were they simple to make, but also full of cheesy deliciousness! And if you’re unfamiliar with making stuffed mushrooms, all you need to do to fill them is pop the stems off, which take about 1 minute to do 16 of them. It’s that simple.
I served these at my house on Thanksgiving and they were a hit! And I kid you not, my mom who’s a vegetable lover EXCEPT mushrooms, actually enjoyed this appetizer. Since I made them a day ahead of time, I reheated them in the oven on Thanksgiving to give them a crisper texture again and they turned out great. Of course, adding cheese to foods always helps, doesn’t it!?
Protein is important in all stages of life, especially as we age.
Here are a few reasons why older adults should focus on adequate high-quality protein foods:
- Protein helps maintain a healthy body weight
- Protein helps optimize muscle mass
- Protein helps support healthy bones and reduces the risk of osteoporosis
Of course protein is just as important for children too. Offering children healthy dairy products like skim milk, low-fat or fat free yogurt and cheese throughout the day can help fulfill their protein needs.
