Fontina Stuffed Portabellas

There was a time in my life that I never would dream that my daughter would be begging for mushrooms. Now often times she begs me to make her some. I love experimenting with different ingredients to fill them with. They are a perfect round bowl. I think Portabellas make the perfect side dish. If you like mushrooms and you like cheese, this recipe is for you.
