How to Cook Stuffed Mushrooms

Are you looking for a satisfying and flavorful appetizer that’s easy to prepare? Why not try making stuffed mushrooms? This classic party dish is simple to make, and it’s sure to impress your guests.

What You’ll Need

To make stuffed mushrooms, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 12 large white mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

In addition, you’ll need a baking sheet, a mixing bowl, and a frying pan.

Preparing the Mushrooms

Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). Next, wash your mushrooms and remove the stems. Reserve the stems for later use. Place the mushroom caps on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Preparing the Filling

Now it’s time to prepare the filling for your mushrooms. Finely chop the mushroom stems you set aside earlier, as well as the onion and the garlic. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat, then add the chopped mushroom stems, onion, and garlic. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the chopped spinach to the frying pan and cook until wilted. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes.

Add the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, and black pepper to the mixing bowl. Mix well, then add the cooled mushroom mixture and stir until fully combined.

Filling the Mushrooms

Using a small spoon or your hands, fill each mushroom cap with the mixture until it is level with the cap. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is golden brown.


Can I use a different type of mushroom?

While white mushrooms are a classic choice for stuffed mushrooms, you can use almost any type of mushroom. Portobellos, cremini mushrooms, and shiitake mushrooms are all good options.

How can I make the filling vegetarian?

To make the filling vegetarian, simply omit the Parmesan cheese and use a plant-based butter.

Can I prepare these mushrooms in advance?

Yes, you can prepare the stuffed mushrooms up to a day in advance. Simply follow the recipe instructions, then store the mushrooms in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to serve them, heat them up in a 350°F (175°C) oven for 10-15 minutes.

The Final Word

Stuffed mushrooms are a crowd-pleasing appetizer that are easy to prepare and packed with flavor. Try making them for your next party or gathering – your guests are sure to love them!
