Stuffed Mushrooms with Cream Cheese

Stuffed Mushrooms – Mushroom caps filled with sauteed onions and mushrooms, mixed with cream cheese, and topped with bread crumbs and Parmesan.

Stuffed mushrooms remind me of when I was little helping my Mom out in her catering kitchen. I just remember her making thousands of these. And why wouldn’t she? They are incredibly easy to make and who doesn’t love a stuffed mushroom? The beauty of a stuffed mushroom is that you can put whatever you want inside. You can add some sausage or some ham, or change out the cheese. I am pretty sure that I have never made them the same way twice. Sometimes I do not even use the cream cheese. I just saute the mushroom bottoms, some shallots or onions, and add breadcrumbs and a little Parmesan cheese.

Do you have big 4th of July plans? Either way, if it is a big family and friends gathering or a small quiet weekend at home these stuffed Mushrooms will be a great addition to the meal you will be whipping out. So go give it a try!

How to Store Stuffed Mushrooms with Cream Cheese //

This is a great question! When one is creating a big batch of these stuffed mushrooms it is likely that there will be some leftovers regardless of how delicious they are. But the simple answer is; Yes. You can put the leftover mushrooms in an airtight container and store them in the fridge for 1-2 days. Just pop them in the oven for about 5 minutes and enjoy!

You can also prepare these mushrooms the day before and keep them refrigerated and pop them in the oven right before the party starts!

Why Should you Not Wash Mushrooms //

I know some people might think that it is weird to not wash mushrooms considering they always tend to have a bit of dirt on them. But trust me it is key that you don’t soak mushrooms in water. Mushrooms retain A LOT of water hence if you wash them they will become soggy and not turn crispy once baked.

The best way to clean mushrooms is to use a damp cloth or paper towel and spread the mushroom caps on it. Slightly pat the towel on them and remove excess dirt however, be careful and gentle so you don’t break the mushrooms.

    Hi!

    Can we sub the white wine with something else? Or can I just leave it out?

    1. bakedbree

      Leave it out or use chicken stock.

  2. julie

    I am going to a dinner party and was wondering if I can bake these at home first and bring them to the party. Do they need to be served warm? Or can I reheat them there?

    1. bakedbree

      I think that they are much better warm, you could reheat them there.

    Hi Bree – These sound yummy! I was curious if these could be prepped the day before and baked night of? What do you think?
    ps – I hope all is well with you and yours! We have moved a number of times since Carmichael and I think of you often as I try to stay positive and enjoy each adventure. We are in Colorado now experiencing the beginnings of our first “real” winter. Exciting! *hugs*

    1. bakedbree

      Totally! That is how I do it. We love Colorado, I hope that you like it too.

    Am I missing the part where the Parmesan is added?

    1. Greengirl

      Redhead I think you mix them with the breadcrumbs as part of the topping. I was wondering the same thing!

  5. Sheila

    Finally, someone else noticed the parmesan was not added!

    1. Bree Hester

      FINALLY! I am sorry if this was so disturbing to you.
