Stuffed Mushrooms

Want an easy recipe to make for your New Year's Celebration (or really any time of the year)? Stuffed Mushrooms are a healthy way to ring in 2012!

Finding appetizers for your New Year's celebration that both kids and adults will love isn't always an easy task. There are my tried and true choices like little shots of soup (appears fancy for the grown ups and fun for little ones) or Mac, Chicken & Cheese Bites (who doesn't like mac n cheese), and of course veggies and dip are reliable. But this New Year's Eve, I'm going with Stuffed Mushrooms. I've already made them several times this year and everyone seems to love them.

Filled with spinach, parmesan and bread crumbs, they are little bites of yumminess and, dare I say, a perfect way for everyone, no matter what their age, to ring in the New Year!

    Yum - made these for dinner last night, using fresh goat-milk ricotta instead of parmesan. It made a delicious (and different!) side dish, but if making it for an appetizer, I think I'd want to add something to make it a little for flavorful... maybe a splash of hot sauce or lemon.
