It’s National Stuffed Mushroom Day! The stuffed mushroom has been around since the early 20th century, and was most likely based on a traditional Italian recipe for stuffed zucchini blooms.
Mushrooms are often filled with breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese. In the 1940s and 1950s, restaurants began presenting stuffed mushrooms as a delicacy and used expensive ingredients such as hot sausage or crabmeat.
