Month of Pinterest Recipes - Mushroom and Cheddar Stuffed Onions

I know, I know, I am so behind.  I did do my month of pinterest recipes.  It has been lots of fun trying out new recipes and seeing the reaction to them.  Some have been successful, some have been complete flops.  Here was our next attempt:  Mushroom and Cheddar Stuffed Onions.

These looked so yummy and since I have more than one person in this here house that is not too keen on meat I thought these would be perfect.

So here is the thing.  Ever see something that looks sooooo good, and then you try it.  Hmmm.  Well these were those things.  I, personally, thought they were pretty dern good.  Everyone else in the house?  Well it was probably 50/50.  We have a certain picky person who refuses to put a mushroom to her mouth. :)  So it was a no-go for her.  We have a couple of other people who are a little set in their ways and do not like to try new things.  So it was a no-go for either of them.  The rest said they liked them but I haven't heard anyone begging for more.  Needless to say these most likely will not be made again in this house.

The other problem with these is they take a LOT of work.  A LOT!!  The flavor was really good.  I am thinking if I did make this again I probably would skip the roll it up in an onion and just make it as a one-dish type of side with the onions chopped in.  It was a little fun though, felt like a little foodie preparing these.

General consensus is, if you are trying to impress someone and look all fancy, these will do the trick.  Here is the link to the recipe if you would like to give these a try.  Eating Well - Mushroom & Cheddar Stuffed Onions
