    I used this as a base recipe. I used all ingredients plus more. My hubby doesn't like mushrooms. So I only used part of the stems and the rest was cooked chicken. I added some onion and garlic powder, fresh dill and parsley and cheddar cheese. They were very tasty and easy to change up for the occassion or by what you have on hand!

    I didn’t have cream cheese so I grated up some pecorino romano. I also didn’t have any chives, so I minced up a little red onion and cooked it up with the minced mushroom stems— DELICIOUS! ?

    Yes! You will want to work with your medical provider on adjusting medication dosages as your blood sugar comes down. It can happen surprisingly quickly.

    These were my favorite thing on the table for Thanksgiving!! They would make a great appetizer, as well as side dish. If you were sharing, I think it would also make a great cheese ball, bc it is firm enough to roll or log roll. They will be made frequently by me, bc I LOVE quick and easy recipes!!

    Jacqueline,
    I believe living the keto lifestyle is a commitment; a promise to become the healthiest and best version of myself by choosing to eat whole, real foods instead of processed, sugary toxins.
    It takes dedication, time, and energy. I wasn't prepared for how much effort goes into eating healthy. Learning to cook can be daunting and overwhelming. It takes planning. Give yourself grace when you fall. It'll happen but remember it's a new day tomorrow.

    My family loves these. I've made them quite a few times and they are a favorite! I switch up the ingredients in the 'stuffing' sometimes to make a different taste. They always come out perfectly. The only thing I changed is that I put them on a broiler pan in the over because the mushrooms emit so much water that the dish got a bit soggy. The broiler pan works perfectly and all the 'water' drips below and the mushrooms remain dry. THANK YOU for this amazing recipe!

    What is a kcal?

    Scientifically, 1 kilocalorie (1000 calories or 1 kcal) means the energy it takes to raise the temperature of 1kg of water by 1°C.

    Calories are units of energy so small that a tiny cookie can provide thousands of them. To ease calculations, energy is expressed in 1000-calorie units known as kilocalories. That is, 1 Calorie is equivalent to 1 kilocalorie; the capital C in Calories denotes kcal on food labels, calories and kilocalories are used interchangeably to mean the same thing. In other words, it is just as normal and acceptable for people to use the small “c” instead of big “C” and say “1 gram of fat gives us 9 calories” in the nutrition world as “1 gram of fat gives us 9 kilocalories or 9000 calories” in the physical science world.
