Stuffed Mushroms Recipe

This is a good recipe for an appetizer  if you are going to a New Year's Eve Party and would like to bring a little something.

12 large Mushrooms
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 Cup chopped onions
1/2 Cup pepperoni chopped (I use Turkey Pepperoni)
1/4 Cup chopped green pepper
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 Cup cracker crumbs
3 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
Coarse black pepper (a few grinder turns)
Warm water to moisten (or chicken broth)

Wash mushrooms, remove and chop stems.  Melt butter in saute pan; add chopped stems, onions, pepperoni, peppers, and garlic.  Cook until soft and onions are translucent.  Place crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper in bowl.  Add sauteed mixture.  Add enough warm water to moisten mixture. 

Stuff the mushroom caps and place in a shallow baking dish.  Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.

Cards Magazine

Today's card is my version of Vanessa Menhorn's  Merry Christmas on page 32 of the December issue of CARDS  Magazine.

I crafted my card using Stampin' Up! products.

The cardstock is Naturals Ivory, my all-time favorite and Gumball Green for the tree.  The DSP is from Be of Good Cheer.

The sentiments, both inside and outside are from More Merry Messages stamp set.  The tree on the front was die cut with the Framelits Holiday Collection and the stamped tree on the inside is from Scentsational Season.
