Jalapeno-Popper {Stuffed} Mushrooms

IMG_4055

How could I have been in the dark for so many years? Am I the only one who didn’t know that Jalapeño Popper’s could be stuffed into mushrooms?

So it happened like this, the other day as Stan and I were driving together someplace, I was thinking about food. More specifically, guy-food that I knew he would love. Suddenly it hit me, Jalapeño stuffed mushrooms! I exploded the idea to Stan who thought it a marvelous idea indeed. I was convinced I had just thought upon a genius idea that no-one else had conceived. I decided to “google-it” just to make my point, but….. realized I was not the first! My bubble was popped.

But, I went ahead with my idea anyway and we were not disappointed! Stan thoroughly enjoyed them. I liked them and I’m not the hugest mushroom fan. Even Declan was licking the cream cheese out of the mushroom!

Please excuse me while I post pictures of my stuffed mushrooms! I don’t know where to start and stop.
