  • For the mushrooms, use a lightly wet paper towel and remove any debris from the mushrooms.

Notes

Tips for making Simple Stuffed Mushrooms:
  • Do not use a soaking rag or wash the mushrooms directly with water, this will make them soggy.
  • Make sure to turn off the oven heat to make sure that the butter doesn't burn. You just want the butter to melt.
