Stuffed Mushrooms – Fathers Day meal

For fathers day this year my brother and I cooked a meal for our dad. We started with scallops on mushy peas and mint with black pudding and crispy bacon. Followed by a butchers steak with homemade peppercorn sauce, green beans and a stuffed mushroom. Finally ending with a cheese selection. The mushrooms were really tasty – converting even my brother an ardent mushroom hater!
