Stuffed Mushrooms (Great Aunt Dottie)

This is a very old recipe, but still a good one.  It comes from Aunt Dottie who was my husband’s aunt on his father’s side and is Mrs. Marvel’s Great Aunt.  Aunt Dottie and family grew mushrooms, among other things, in Southeastern Pennsylvania.  Dottie lived to be 99 years old and had a great collection of mushroom recipes.  You will find another one of hers later on.
