This blog is only recipes on baking...since I'm not much of a fan of cooking, BUT I've been getting requests to post the recipe to my grandma's famous Thanksgiving stuffed I asked her for the recipe. Some of her measurements were done by eyeballing it since she never uses measuring cups, lol, but I converted her system into regular measurements. Please let me know how yours turn out if you make them :)


20 medium whole mushrooms
handful or 1/3 cup Italian style bread crumbs
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp oil
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 clove garlic
(1/3 cup cooked spinach if desired)

2.Remove stems of each mushroom(to base) and set the mushroom tops/caps to the side

6.Turn off heat and set the pan onto a COOL burner.
7.Grease a cookie sheet and place mushroom tops face up.
8.Add bread crumbs to the pan of mushroom stems(make sure they are Italian style..regular will taste bland), combine thoroughly. (if the mixture seems dry add a tiny bit more melted butter or even chicken broth)

A cake-like cookie that is simple and not overwelming. The dough does not spread when cooked so make sure to lightly press down on each round when placing it onto the cookie sheet. For those that would like a more fall/spice flavor add a dash of 'all spice' or 'pumpkin pie spice' into the mix. (7/10)
