These stuffed tidbits pack a surprising crunch, thanks to chopped pecans in the cheesy spinach filling. The appetizers are fun to serve for a special occasion. Whenever guest sample these mushrooms, they always ask for the recipe.—Debbie Hert, Columbus, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound fresh torn spinach
