Stuffed Mushroom Day is celebrated on February 4th each year. As the name implies, it is a day set aside to enjoy this tasty treat by everyone who loves mushrooms.
Stuffed mushrooms can most likely be credited to the Italians, as mushroom recipes resemble the Italian stuffed zucchini.

A favorite recipe for stuffed mushrooms most often includes breadcrumbs, parsley, olive oil and garlic. Other favorite ingredients are crabmeat (my favorite) or sausage, and other vegetables to your liking. Topped with parmesan cheese and baked, they make a very tasty appetizer you won't be able to stop eating. Check out a variety of stuffed mushroom recipes here on Allrecipes.
Crafty Stuffed Mushrooms
In addition to being interested in Stuffed Mushroom Day because I love how they taste, I was just as drawn to it because I am a crafter. Being an Etsy seller, I have seen so many adorable hand-crafted mushrooms by my fellow shop owners that I just had to show off some of them. And Stuffed Mushroom Day seemed like a good day to do so.

The Summing Up of Stuffed Mushroom Day
Stuffed Mushroom Day is also known as National Stuffed Mushroom Day. It may be one of those made-up unofficial holidays, but I, for one, am glad someone decided to designate a day that clearly encourages people to make and consume lots and lots of stuffed mushrooms.
And for the times you are not able to make your own edible stuffed mushrooms, or go out to a restaurant that features these yummy appetizers, you can remember your favorite mushrooms with one or more of these adorable handmade 'pretend' stuffed mushrooms featured here.
