Bacon, Spinach, and Feta Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms are an excellent way to enhance the taste and nutritional value of your meal. They provide a generous source of potassium, selenium, copper, and B vitamins (specifically pantothenic acid, riboflavin, and niacin). Additionally, they have a rich umami taste, the fifth basic taste after sweet, salty, bitter, and sour. Personally, I find mushrooms to be one of the most unique and versatile vegetable- what other vegetable delivers such a rich, savory, and meaty sensation?! Try and find out!
