Ingredients for Stuffed Mushrooms

MUSHROOMS Buy small brown, white, or cremini mushrooms/baby bella mushrooms. Smaller white button mushrooms are great for a one bite snack, larger mushrooms are delicious but you’ll need a plate for serving.

FILLING Cream cheese is combined with parmesan cheese, garlic cloves, and spices. It’s then spooned or piped into the mushrooms.

TOPPING Seasoned breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and butter are combined to make a simple yet delicious topping. For the breadcrumbs, try using panko bread crumbs for some extra crunch. Garnish with parsley if desired.

Variations

This stuffed mushroom recipe is delicious but simply. It is really versatile so you can add in your own favorites.

  • Sprinkle the top with a little cheddar cheese or mozzarella.
  • Add diced artichokes, a bit of chopped spinach (or even use leftover spinach artichoke dip).
  • Add in your favorites seasonings or fresh herbs.
  • For added flavor, try some shredded crab meat, sausage, or bacon.

Tips for the Best Stuffed Mushrooms

  • To clean the mushrooms, use a clean damp cloth or paper towel and wipe them. Mushrooms are like sponges and will soak up water so if you do need to wash them, rinse them very quickly and dab dry with a towel.
  • When removing the stems, don’t discard them. Chopped mushroom stems can be pan fried with garlic and added to the filling or stored into rice, casseroles, soups, or stews.
  • I use a small spoon or a tomato corer (which you can get at the dollar store) to scoop out the inside of the mushroom and fit more filling.
  • To make the filling look a little neater, use a piping bag with a small tip or a zip-top bag with the corner snipped off.
  • Keep these low carb/keto by skipping the bread crumbs and adding extra cheese.

The mushrooms can be prepared up to 24 hours ahead of time and stored covered in the fridge. Remove them from the refrigerator while the oven preheats and bake as directed.

You can freeze stuffed mushrooms before baking them. They will release a little bit more water but will still be great. They should be baked from frozen (do not thaw), you will need to add 5-8 minutes to the cooking time (depending on the size of mushrooms).

So Many Stuffed Mushrooms!
