Mushrooms Stuffed with Feta, Pepperoni and Spinach



I saw these gorgeous and big mushrooms in the supermarket the other day and immediately thought of stuffed mushrooms.  As an experiment, I made a few changes to a surprisingly good recipe I came up with earlier.

Simple really…hope it was good….but I will never know!
