Handmade Gift with a Recipe

Maddie made two homemade gifts for her friend.

She made a canvas using the same method she used for boards in her room here.
And she made stuffed mushrooms.
These are always a hit!
I got the recipe from a good friend years ago!
Sofia tried them and loved them last week at the homecoming festivities.
So Maddie made them for Sofia's birthday as well!

Nothing like a hand made gift!
(we did throw in a little starbucks gift card)

Stuffed Mushrooms

12 large mushrooms
1 cube butter (not margarine)
1/2 cup italian breadcrumbs
1 T finely chopped onion
1 T parsley finely chopped (optional)
1 egg slightly beaten

Wipe mushroom cpas clean. Melt 4 tablespoons butter. Dip mushrooms in butter to coat. Mix breadcrumbs, parsley, onion, egg and a little salt and pepper. Fill mushroom caps, melt the remaining butter. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and drizzle with the remaining butter.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes!

I didn't say it was healthy...Paula Deen would like it because of the stick of butter!!
