Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers: Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are probably one of my favorite appetizers. What’s not to love? Meaty cremini mushrooms filled with cheese, veggies, meat…whatever you’re feeling that day.

I decided to go with an all veggie mushroom today and these were really simple to make. My only note is make sure you taste the spinach mixture after you’ve added the veggies. You want it to be nice and flavorful!
