Stuffed Gourmet Mushrooms

I always wanted to make a dish with whole mushrooms. Whenever I came across whole mushrooms in the grocery store, I wasn’t quite sure what to make with that. So this appetizer had to wait for so long. But as soon as I had the first bite of it, I felt I shouldn’t have waited this long to make this delicious dish. Anyway I am so glad that I did finally give it a shot.
The mushroom was very tender and the stuffing also tasted good, it literally melted into my mouth. This is really a fun way to make mushrooms.
