Have no fear, the mighty mushroom is here! In addition to their warm umami flavor, mushrooms are versatile and always in season. Discover a mushroom appetizer for every type of holiday guest below:

The Picky Eater
Every get-together has one. From vegetables to textured foods, they are picky about everything! Sneak a healthy dose of mushrooms into an otherwise classic meatball recipe.

The Grazer
Grazers do just that – they graze! Instead of eating set meals, they eat small portions throughout the day. For guests that linger around the holiday snack table, serve up this bite-sized appetizer.

    • Boost flavor minus the heft with button mushrooms! Coming in at just 18.5 cals per serving, these umami bombs are every dieter's BFF. Plus, they offer up 15 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin B3, niacin, which promotes healthy skin and digestion. Not too shabby!

#Repost @very_derlicious My latest lunch go-to 🍄Marinated these in some lemon juice, salt, pepper, dill, and broth that I had leftover. Then I pan roasted them on a cast iron skillet for 2 min on the stem side and 5 with the top side down. Not sure the flavors held on enough to make the waiting time and extra dishes for marinating worth it... So the next time I did just the mushrooms by themselves and they were 🤗😋 For lunch I put them on salads or eat them with a little cheese and some sides
