Notes

  1. Your leftovers will last up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge. You can reheat them with a quick zap in the microwave, or in the oven at 400F for 4-10 minutes or until heated through. Just like a regular slice of pizza, these stuffed mushrooms taste awesome cold as well!
  2. These mushrooms won't freeze well. The texture mushrooms get after being frozen and thawed is not particularly appetizing.
  3. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
