The stems usually just pop right out. If you find one that won’t, gently use a knife and remove them. (Note: You can reserve the stems to make mushroom broth later.)

Serve immediately.

Notes: You can make the filling ahead of time and store it in the fridge for a day or two before making the stuffed mushrooms. If you have any filling left you can also use it as a dip. The mushrooms can even be frozen after they are baked by placing them on a baking sheet and then freezing for 3 or 4 hours. Then they can be removed to an airtight container and frozen for several months. To reheat place them on a baking sheet and place in the oven at 400 for about 10-12 minutes.
