So I may have had Thanksgiving early in my household. So they'll be a lot of reviews of items that are worthwhile to serve in the coming days. The holidays can be very stressful because of all the preparation that needs to be done in advance. I cheated this year. Everything came from Trader Joe's. So I got everything I needed out of the freezer an hour before company came. I cut out all the cook times from the boxes and placed them next to each item that was about the head into the oven so everything could be ready all at the same time. One of the appetizers that came out of the freezer was Trader Joe's Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms.
The pros: Easy appetizer that won't kill you in calories. Cheesy, spinachy filling that wasn't overdone with bread crumbs.
The cons: Takes a bit longer than most appetizers in the oven. Mine took 30 minutes. These should be served straight out of the oven. Mine cooled down pretty quick.
The verdict: I'd buy these again. The filling was tasty and developed a nice crunch on the top. For $4.99 it was a good value and is worth a look in the freezer aisle.
Here is the visual rundown of what you can expect if you purchase this product. My final product thoughts are below the pictures.

I'd buy this again, especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was a nice appetizer to pass around. Twelves pieces come in a container and this was good to share among 6 people.
