    I made this recipe. But did not like the cream cheese taste. Next time I will try another cheese.

    I used this as a base recipe. I used all ingredients plus more. My hubby doesn't like mushrooms. So I only used part of the stems and the rest was cooked chicken. I added some onion and garlic powder, fresh dill and parsley and cheddar cheese. They were very tasty and easy to change up for the occassion or by what you have on hand!

    TB you can use larger button mushrooms, baby bella or full size portabell.
