1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese

1/4 cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs

3 tablespoons minced chives

1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning blend

Minced fresh chives (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove and reserve stems from mushrooms. Season mushroom caps with salt; set aside. Mince stems to yield 1/2 cup; discard remaining stems.

Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160ºF. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
