Stuffed Mushrooms

These mouth-watering, delicious mushrooms taste just like restaurant-style stuffed mushrooms and are my family's absolute favorite. Couscous, cheeses and the nuts provide a delicious stuffing for fresh mushrooms. This wonderful appetizer brings out an exciting combination of flavors and textures. It's certain to impress!
