Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

How is it already December?  My busy season started last week with rehearsals for upcoming holiday concerts.  From now until the end of the month it’s one gig after the next, with some school concerts thrown in for variety.  Which is why I end up cooking on the fly a lot this time of year.  This stuffed mushroom recipe comes together very quickly, which is perfect for when I have to bring a dish to a potluck or party and only have a half hour to prepare.

This dish is also part of the Holiday Bites blog hop and giveaway!  I’m so thankful to be a part of this group that seasonally shares recipes and puts together a sweet prize package.  To enter, fill out the widget at the end of the post.  One lucky reader will win:
