Healthy Options

This recipe calls for healthier versions of ingredients such as:

  • 1% milk
  • Mozzarella cheese that is part skim milk and/or fat free
  • Light cream cheese
  • Whole wheat bread crumbs

By adding in these lower fat and lighter varieties you can take a potentially diet busting dish and make it healthy.

This idea can be carried over to many other recipes and existing dishes you already create.

Try a healthier alternative in your everyday meals and see if you or your family even notices the difference - your waistline is sure to take notice.

      I adore mushrooms and try to add it and garlic to most meals I make.

      I thought stuffed mushrooms were something extremely complicated until my mother-in-law showed me how simple making stuffed mushrooms can be. Since she taught me that I've been on a roll making all sorts of stuffed mushroom dishes and coming up with all sorts of unique and delicious stuffed mushroom recipes.

      If you really love stuffed mushrooms you won't regret trying this cheesy, stuffed mushroom dish!
