    I made this before and this time I made a couple changes. I added 1/2 cup of water to the stuffing mixture because last time it was too dry. I also bought 3 pounds of mushrooms (but only used stems from 2 pounds of the mushrooms). It turned out to be the perfect amount of stuffing! I will definitately be making this again. My friends once again raved over this recipe.  -  04 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I agree that it lacked a little "zip." Next time I will use more cheese and sausage instead of ground beef.  -  21 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    took a little while to prepare, but was delicious...i recommend adding a little water, because they get a little dry  -  12 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
