Paleo Stuffed Mushrooms

I love me some mushrooms but Mr. Bejelly has never been a huge fan.  If you don’t know by now my husband is a picky eater, like I’m sure you could look up the word int the dictionary and his photo would be starting back act  you.  He has some interesting texture issues that make a lot of my favorite foods off limits.

However, some of my favorite college memories revolve around large quantities of beer and batter fried mushrooms.  My roommates and I would wade through sleet or snow  to grab the fried goodness from our favorite bar Busters.   I wanted another fun appetizer for m Paleo Thanksgiving meal and figured it was time to work on a recipe.  This recipe for Paleo Stuffed Mushrooms is super simple but oh so delicious.


Paleo Stuffed Mushrooms


I wanted to do something a little different so I added pork rinds to the stuffing and it gives it such a great unique flavor.    If you want you can completely skip the swiss cheese but I love the bite of it in this dish.

    These look so darn tasty–with the apples, they’d really make a great appetizer for Thanksgiving! I love mushrooms but they seem to be something that a lot of people really, really dislike.
