Stuffed Mushrooms

I have made stuffed mushrooms in many different ways, but I like the simple breadcrumb topping best. At times though, I find the mushrooms are just a bit dry when prepared this way so I decided to remedy this by putting a little creamy seasoned cheese into the cap before I add the crumb mixture. This method works really well and the cheese is a nice surprise when you bite into the mushroom.

    This looks wonderful! I just bought mushrooms yesterday, and I have arugula on hand. I’m going to try making this combination today.
