Sometimes figuring out what appetizer to serve is the most difficult part of entertaining, especially during holidays or when you’re having special guests over. I appreciate all the sweet notes from newly married couples as well as college students that are trying my recipes and have asked for appetizer suggestions. I try to serve appetizers that are healthy, but of course, flavorful. These stuffed mushrooms fit that description well. The combination of feta cheese, green onions and parsley create a fresh combination. This recipe is only five ingredients (not counting salt and pepper), so it’s also very economical and extremely simple, perfect for new cooks. Enjoy these Feta-Stuffed Mushrooms when you’re entertaining or anytime of the year.
