I made these savory stuffed mushrooms in preparation for our upcoming Thanksgiving get togethers. I think that one of my favorite parts of the Holiday's is taste testing all of the possible appetizers that may or may not make it to our family dinners and the small gatherings we 'squeeze in' with our closest friends. Thank the Lord we have such large families and such good friends so I can taste test to my hearts content! Can I get a 'HALLELUJAH!'
All of the women in our group thought these were an amazing appetizer! I l.o.v.e. stuffed mushrooms in a perfectly stalky kind of way and these were just a bit different than any I've ever had, very light and healthy without the cheese overload and yet they fulfilled my cheesy, stuffed mushroom
addiction craving. The Pepita seeds were a wonderful twist to the usual pesto. My husband 'liked' them but said he expected more 'kick' which is to be expected of my cooking….. and from men ;} It ain't got no beef in it honey!
As I so eloquently mentioned before, I have an appetizer fetish/love/addiction which I am not ashamed of whatsoever. In fact, if it were up to me, I would quite happily live off nothing but appetizers (and the appropriate wine) for dinner every. single. night.
I have high hopes that I will be most diligent in posting my absolute favorite, tried and true (don't fret Martha, I know I'm no expert.") Holiday appetizers which are totally family reunion worthy (I know what expectations that brings) and yet so simple that they will bring you ZERO stress while throwing together and the most skeptical of MIL's will appreciate.
This is my vow. I got your back!
