Stuffed Mushrooms

stuffed mushroom recipe

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 being a little in my mom’s 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, add breadcrumbs and a little Parmesan cheese.

Do you have big New Year’s Eve plans? I think that years of being a waitress has turned me off to leaving the house for the evening. I do love New Year’s, but I prefer to spend it at home. It seemed like for the first 5 years that I have been married, my husband was always on duty. The one year that we did actually go out, I had Ava 9 months later. These days, it is a kid friendly, fun, dinner and bed by 10. How times have changed.

    I used to hate mushrooms as a child and now they are one of my favorite foods! Funny how that works. I haven’t tried stuffed mushrooms yet, but I am going to have to try these. They look yummy! What other cheeses do you like to use?

    1. bakedbree

      blue, gouda, cheddar, asiago… any cheese tastes good with these.

    Brought these little gems to the NYE party we were attending and got RAVE reviews. They were so delicious that after I stuffed all of the mushrooms I had about 1Tbsp of filling left in the bowl and my husband and I were fighting over it. Yum. I halved the recipe again and made 36 mushrooms and all were gone within minutes. Thanks Bree. Happy New Year to you and yours!

    1. bakedbree

      lol! glad that you liked them. That filling would be good on a bagel wouldn’t it?

  4. Erica

    I made these last night. They were incredible! I have never made stuffed mushrooms before so I was a bit uncertain how they would turn out. They were perfect and I will be making these again. I’m going to blog about them today.

    1. bakedbree

      So glad that you liked them Erica.

    Just came across your website and have already fallen in love with it!! I love stuffed mushrooms and I found your recipe for these. I usually make them during the holidays and this combination of flavors sounds wonderful! I have not used cream cheese before. I can’t wait to try them!

    1. bakedbree

      Welcome Karen!

  6. JoAnna

    Hi–do you think it would work to assemble the mushrooms but wait to bake them until the next day? I’m trying to do as much ahead of time as possible for a party we’re having this weekend. Love your website, by the way! 🙂

    1. bakedbree

      I would make the filling and then fill and bake them off. I would be afraid that the mushroom would get soggy.

    Hi there. I just discovered your blog yesterday and it was just in time. I LOVE IT. I am having a dinner party tomorrow night and decided to make these mushrooms and the Easy Bake Pasta. I just finished preparing them. It worked out perfectly because I could prepare, refrigerate and then just bake tomorrow. I plan to do a blog post with my results! Thanks so much. Your blog is so well organized and use friendly!

    1. bakedbree

    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.

  12. 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.

  13. traci hughes

    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.

  14. Redhead in NC

    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!

  15. Sheila

    Finally, someone else noticed the parmesan was not added!

    1. Bree Hester

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