Stuffed Mushroom Caps THE STERNO PRODUCTS 2016 HOLIDAY HORS D’OEUVRE SERIES

stuffed mushroom caps

Stuffed mushroom caps are a classic (especially during the holidays). The Sterno Culinary Team developed this version a few years ago. Feel free to play around with the ingredients. Prefer diced ham to bacon? Go ahead and substitute. Like more garlic? Add a couple of more cloves. We'll also be walking you through the best way to serve your 'shrooms once they come out of the oven. We're roasting them directly in the food pan that's included in the Sterno Buffet Kit we'll be chatting about in just a bit.

You might find it helpful to scroll through this entire page before you get started. We've found it best to have all your elements prepped and organized before you start cooking.
