Stuffing In Mushrooms
My friend Amy is brilliant. This is a fun way to turn stuffing into a fun appetizer for holiday parties.
I plan to make these, and freeze them so I have a quick bite to serve for last-minute guests. Plus, parmesan and cream cheese? Sign me up.

I love that all you do is turn your stuffing into balls, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
You can dip them in an egg wash, and roll them in cracker meal, to make more of a crunchy exterior. Have an air fryer? Try them in there and let us know how they turn out!
