Stuffed mushrooms make an easy and delicious snack for any party. Because they’re naturally low in calories, they can be good vehicles for delivering heavier foods like cheeses or charcuterie, adding a ton of flavor but not excessive calories. If the stuffed crust has taught us anything, it’s the more filling, the better. These stuffed mushroom recipes put all your favorite dips and flavors inside mushrooms, the ideal vessel for everything from pizza filling to crab and artichoke. Here we go!
Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms
Clean and chop off the stems of 18 large mushrooms. Sautee stems and green onions and combine with breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian herbs, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper. Fill the mushroom caps and bake for 15 minutes. To make heartier mushrooms, add minced ham, prosciutto, toasted pecans, or bacon bits. Prep and cook in 20 minutes.
Cheese and Herb Stuffed Portobello
These grilled portobello mushrooms are perfect for a summer party and can be a main dish for vegetarians or vegan guests (if you skip the butter and replace cheese with vegan cheese). Use cooked rice instead of panko bread, or add rolled oats first to the food processor and blend until ground before adding the rest of ingredients. Prep and grill in 23 minutes.
Grilled Stuffed Mushroom Sliders
These mushrooms sliders make an excellent option for vegetarian guests at your next summer cookout. Serve in a bun with arugula salad. Use kale or spinach as your green if you find arugula too pungent. Or add a creamy garlic dressing to your arugula to cut through its sharp flavor.
Boursin Stuffed Mushrooms
French Boursin cheese binds together a creamy filling of breadcrumbs, onions, peppers, and artichokes in this recipe. For a gluten-free variation, cook and salt 1/2 cup of quick oats and mix in the mixture as you’d do with breadcrumbs. Top the mushroom caps with Parmesan and bake for 15 minutes.
Stuffed Mushrooms With Clams
Clams might not be the first ingredient that comes to mind for stuffing mushrooms, but they are an excellent alternative. If clams aren’t your favorite seafood, use canned or pre-cooked mussels instead. Prep and cook in 40 minutes.
Stuffed Mushrooms With Spinach and Ham
Make a filling of minced cooked mushroom stems, onions, ham, garlic, spinach and breadcrumbs. Fill the mushroom caps and top with mozzarella. Bake for 20 minutes. Use extra mozzarella or Gruyere in the filling, or replace ham for soppressata or mortadella to experiment with new flavors.
Mushroom is the best food for a vegan. It tasted like meat and suitable for any seasoning. High in B and D vitamins, mushrooms are healthy, flavorful, and great as substitutes for meat in stews and meatloaves. The stuffed mushroom recipes above offer earthy dishes with meat, cheese, seafood, and herbed breadcrumb fillings. Let’s cook!
