Golden brown and savory these baked stuffed mushrooms are an easy recipe and so delicious! Delectable, creamy and a little bit spicy these mushrooms are mouthwatering and loaded with flavor! Stuffed mushrooms can be used as an appetizer or main course!
I’m sharing this recipe with my Mom in mind. Mom loves mushrooms. Sautéed, stuffed, mushroom soup or in a salad – doesn’t matter, I think mushrooms are her very favorite food!
Mom is also my best friend – we giggle and laugh, collaborate and commiserate. She has been strength when I need it and tough when it’s time to dry those tears and move forward. Family is everything, don’t you agree?
I am SO LUCKY to have both of my folks in my life and have such a great relationship with them! I don’t know what I’d do without them. They proof every blog before it goes out. Each time they find something. Even when I’m sure I’ve went over it six times with a fine-tooth comb. They still call me and say “Debbie I found something that needs correcting…”
I’m sure they will find something in this one too, but I’m winging it! Because I can’t ask my folks to proofread a post that’s about them, right? 😀
Anyway, let’s get back to these mushrooms. Mom will love them. They are fabulous! Savory, creamy and a tiny bit spicy.
I will make them when they visit next – Mom will be happy I’m sure!
How to make baked stuffed mushrooms
- Start by cleaning the mushrooms. Take a damp paper towel and gently wipe the outside of the mushroom. Slice off the tip of the stem. Removing the remaining part of the stem to use in the filling.
- Dice an onion, celery and the stems of the mushroom, mince some garlic and into the skillet it goes with a few spices for just five minutes. Take it off the heat and allow it to cool.
- Next up – prepare the stuffing. Sausage, egg, a couple of cheeses (because we can never have too much cheese, right?!!!) and breadcrumbs. Mix this together with the sautéed veggies, stuff everything into mushrooms (in this recipe I recommend large button mushrooms – I used the brown ones as I think they have more flavor)
How long do you bake stuffed mushrooms?
After stuffing the mushrooms with the filling, bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. Finishing the stuffed mushrooms under the broiler will toast them to golden brown perfection.
