I know many people can't stand mushrooms, but I have to be honest here, I love them. Ever sense I was a kid my love for them grow more..I don't know if I am more drown to the smell of cooked mushrooms or the taste, or perhaps both. Today, I made them for lunch. My kids don't like them at all :/, so I set down to try few..guess what? I end up eating whole plateful! No meat, no any other side dishes, just toasted buttery bread and these stuffed mushrooms...I can't even tell you how fantastic they taste!

You can use any cheese of your choice. Also if you do not have shredded, you can cut sliced cheese into thin strips.
I tried to make my little beauties to be more appealing, because they are very unappealing, wood looking, ugly veggie..but of course their taste is absolutely positively amazing!
