December 13, 2017

Twinkling lights. Jingling bells. The holidays are here, and it is time to celebrate!

You have a wonderful family and lively friends – and each have their own foodie personality. That calls for some creative cooking in the kitchen this holiday season. 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.
