    To stuff cap.Make slit and leave knife tip in slit.Slighlly pull knife to one side to open the slit and slide the sliver of garlic down the knife blade into the hole.
    Also I like to blanch my garlic slivers in hot water first which makes them springy and it's the onlly way to get it into that slit. - 12/17/08

    This was very good. The mushrooms absorb whatever flavor you put on them. I switched the vinegar to Worcestershire, since I usually mix that into my burgers. I'll definitely make this again. - 3/10/09

    I made this for the first time in a long while tonight. I used fresh rosemary leaves out of the garden and fresh garlic slivers along with the balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. I did not need thyme, salt, or pepper. I found it tasty and easy to prepare. - 12/17/08

    We make these quite often but we like to marinate them overnight in the fridge in 2 Tbsp each of Worchestire sauce, soy sauce and olive oil. We also grill them on the BBQ and they are delicious!! - 12/17/08

    Yuu-uumy! I'm too lazy to cut the slits to put the garlic in, so I just mix it in with the olive oil, vinegar and herbs, and it still comes out delicious! - 8/18/08

    Didn't have any garlic on hand so tried it without. We grilled them outside on the BBQ and loved it! We're trying to cut red meat out of our diets and with this recipe I don't think I'll miss grilled burgers. - 8/17/08

    This is also great if you're camping - to really make it easy, just use bottled balsamic vinaigrette (has the oil, vinegar, garlic & herbs already in it). - 8/17/08

    Really good! The key to putting in the garlic is to cut a very small wedge out of the top...a wide slit, really...Also great with the sauce omitted and BBQ marinade used instead - 7/17/08
