    They are a good amount of work for a bite of food, but when done right, they are VERY tasty!!
    I normally stuff mushrooms with fresh, sage pork sausage and put them under the broiler. Hit them with a little grated cheese during the last couple of minutes in the oven and they're good to go!

      Not to doubt anyone's Command of their Kitchen but I'll bet your wife doesn't read this post...

      That is an ambitious menu for 16 -- bon appetite!

        Non-Traditional Christmas Dinner...

        Hello Pangracs.
        As Morale Officer of the ACG Mess Hall, I would like to thank you for sharing your non-conventional Christmas meal.
        You did a fine job.
        In spite of your wondrous meals' potential offering, I have been asked by anonymous elves to recommend the following item to make the meal complete.

          Polish Style This Year

          Wife feels up to making glumkis (I can't spell it in English let alone Polish) this year so we're off to find a nice head of cabbage in the morning.
          Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.

            I think the Polish/English spelling for cabbage rolls is "Golumbki." However it's spelled, you've got some good eating in your immediate future, my friend! I envy you!~

                  You've got me there. I would try parboiling the cabbage for only a short period of time to the point that the leaves can be easily removed and worked with, but not too soft. A longer boiling time would tend to remove the natural cabbage flavor.

                      Ordinary button mushrooms. Wash them, remove the stem and stuff the caps with pork sausage. Real easy. Cook under the broiler, sausage side up, on a raised rack and the grease runs right off the shrooms'.

                        My plan is to mix in Panceta (non-smoked italian "bacon") and cheddar cheese instead of the Pecorino I usually use...we have a bunch of kids (8 in all), and I want it to be something that will make them a little less afraid of eating mushrooms.

                        Oh yea, and anything I remove from the inside of the cap is also put into the mixture so you still get the nutritional value of that part of the mushrooms.

                        In fact, you'd be surprised how healthful mushroomas are!

                          Well, the meal was a huge success! We are still eating leftovers due to some late drops from the guest list, but everyone loved the food and all had at least seconds of everything!
