Kosher Cheesy Stuffed Mushrooms

Cheesy, crumbly, and savory, Kosher cheesy stuffed mushrooms are the perfect two-bite finger foods for your next get together.

The Backstory:┬áThese savory appetizers are the perfect party starter for just about any occasion. They’re savory, fresh-tasting, and their crunchy, cheesy topping make them almost addicting. You simply cannot stop at one. My dear friend Carla Tinebro taught me how to make these when I lived in Chicago during the mid-90s. We made them often in those years, when we’d host Saturday night cocktail parties, usually around different cuisines and themes. More often than not, however, Carla made these delectable two-bite appetizers and everyone was grateful for it. I can imagine them on a platter now, and my mouth is literally watering!
