Houlihan’s Copycat Shrooms

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min.


about 1-1/2 dozen

I enjoyed this appetizer at Houlihan's restaurant, and had them every time I went. When the restaurant closed in my area, I was determined to recreate it at home. These might even be better than theirs! Besides baking them, I have also cooked via a grill or toaster oven set on Broil. Consistently delicious, and enjoyed by everyone that has tried them.—Jo Hart, Flippin, Arkansas
