    These tasted great to those goat cheese-lovers in the crowd. A simple, great idea.

    These are to DIE for! I used a whole wheat honey bread instead of white bread and it still tasted amazing. They were gone in minutes!

    Made these for a dinner party the other night -- so delicious. I only used 2 slices of bread and still had plenty of crumbs left over.

    LOVED IT!

    I used bought breadcrumbs and they still turned out beautifully. Also, I added a dollop of pesto to the mix. It was gorgeous!

    These were a huge hit at the New Year's Day party I attended! I took the advice of others and added chopped nuts to the goat cheese mixture..the ones I used were 'sweet and spicy' mixed nuts leftover from Christmas. Also, after baking, I drizzled the mushrooms with a balsalmic glaze and tossed some "hand- crushed" nuts over the dish. Very pretty!

    This is a delicious recipe that can be tailored to your tastes. I used thyme and rosemary instead of parsley. I also added some crumbled bacon and shredded aged goat cheese for a more complex flavor. Even the leftovers tasted good reheated the next day. The 2nd time making this recipe, I assembled the mushrooms the night before and baked just before serving. What a disaster! The filling became gummy and was an unpleasant color. So to the previous post, do not make these ahead of time!

    Thanks for the tip on the crushed walnuts. My wife is not a fan of garlic and I cut it way down. The crushed walnuts gave the recipe a great added flavour and she loved them. Was the start of a great night. Thanks again!

    add a dollup of fig preserves or honey on top after baking... the sweet cuts the tart in the goat cheese. very yummy. and chopped walnuts add a little texture as well.

    this looks incredible! Im making this with another stuffed mushroom appetizer for my bday bbq this weekend~http://www.fourgreensteps.com/community/recipes/appetizers/stuffed-butto...

    I made these for a group of my girl friends and everyone loved them. I took the advice from the below comments and added bacon and it made them very tasty. I also used garlic basil goat cheese instead of plain and it gave it much more flavor. I will use these again for sure.

    THese are quick, easy, and very tasty! The white bread is brilliant b/c it holds everything together. At first, I was going to toast it b/c I thought it was suppoed to be like bread crumbs, but the doughy consistency is actually what makes the recipe work well. Really good!

  • jeanob14 24 Dec, 2008

    Easy and great for company. I always add a little extra garlic too.

  • Lorrenza 5 Dec, 2008

    It tasted good. Definetely next time I will add some bacon.

  • mfbarry 3 Dec, 2008

    I made this recipe as an appetizer for THanksgiving and it was a big hit! I followed the recipe as is and it was very tasty. If you flavored goat cheese, it makes a difference. I will definately make this again.

  • JayMJay 24 Aug, 2008

    I agree with LambyandLukie. I pulsed in 4 strips of cooked bacon, 2 fresh basil leaves, and cracked pepper. This seemed to give it the 'kick' it needed. It is a versatile recipe which may be adjusted to one's taste. If you have many guests, use smaller button mushrooms. If you like a cheesy flavor, use larger mushroom caps, which will accommodate more filling.

  • LambyAndLukie 28 Dec, 2007

    These are easy and taste good (especially if you like goat cheese) but they are not exceptional. If I make these again I would try adding something else for more flavor (maybe bacon???).

  • neenared 17 Dec, 2007

    I wanted to prepare these on Saturday and bake them off on Sunday before serving - does anyone know if they will hold up well over night?

  • jwarner 17 Dec, 2007
