Because graveyard soil tends to be rich in organic matter, there is a chance that mushrooms may grow around the graves.

Specifically, the soil-dwelling critters of the soil food web die and decay. Their body parts break down and in so doing enrich the soil with nutrients such as nitrogen. The nutrients tend to stay in place in graveyard soils. So the nutrients are there to be accessed by plants - such as mushrooms - that favor nutrient-rich soils.

A good recipe for stuffed mushrooms is to clean to mushroom and cut the top 1/4 off then add in minced peppers, onions and cheddar cheese then bake in the oven.

Fry the mushrooms in a little oil until soft. Add the eggs and fold once the eggs are set underneath. The top will cook in its own heat in the time it takes to serve it.

I think mushrooms are great in spaghetti, philly cheese steak, stuffed, etc. You can be very creative with mushrooms and make sauces for other meats to add on top of them. There are lots of recipies you can look up on the net. You can use the search engine to look them up.
