you're looking for something to do today then break out some fungi
because it's National Stuffed Mushroom Day! An appetizer
sure to satisfy your appetite. Let's get right into
National Stuffed Mushroom Day!
WHY IS THIS A
So why is this a holiday? Well, if you've been following
I'm sure you can guess... It's because people love eating stuffed
mushrooms! There's no real reason for the day chosen other than that.
So what is it about mushrooms that makes people want to eat
let alone stuff them? Well, surprisingly enough they're packed with
vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein! So that's a pretty good start.
And there are a wide variety of types of mushrooms to choose from,
which gives you a good selection of different flavors. Plus mushrooms
grow quickly so it's a readily available food source. But you
have to be careful if you're trying to pick your own from the wild.
There are a lot of poisonous mushrooms out there, some of which look
exactly like the edible varieties. So if I were you, unless you really
know what you're doing, I'd stick to getting mushrooms from the store.
make a stuffed mushroom is pretty simple. You just get a bunch of large
mushrooms, carefully break off the stems, chop up the stems, add it to
a variety of ingredients and then spoon it back into the hole in the
cap. Then you bake them and enjoy! The "stuffing" mix is made
a variety of different ways. There is usually a bunch of seasonings,
maybe some garlic, a type of cheese and sometimes even breadcrumbs. And
the white, round mushrooms work the best for this recipe because they
act like little bowls for your stuffing mix. I personally
think I'd like these but they're actually pretty tasty!
So how can you celebrate today? Well, you can simply go to a
restaurant and order some stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. It's a
very common appetizer but most restaurants will make them their own
way. You could even go from restaurant to restaurant trying the
different stuffed mushrooms out to see who really makes them the
best. That way the next time you want them you know exactly
place to go to for them.
Or you could buy some ready-made
stuffed mushrooms and bake them at home yourself. That way you don't
have to wait for a table and it might end up costing you a little
less. You also can relax in your own home while these babies
bake. Or you can find a recipe online and make them yourself
scratch. It's honestly a really simple snack to make and it doesn't
take long to bake them either. Invite some friends over to watch the
game and serve these to them; I'm sure they'd be impressed.
if they're a bunch of dudes and don't say anything, just watch them
disappear from the platter! Have a great day and try not to
too many mushrooms today ;).
