In my completely unbiased opinion, there are some really great appetizer recipes on the blog (French Onion Dip or Buffalo Cauliflower, anyone?), but this stuffed stuffed recipe might be my favorite. I also love Jack. Of course he loves all things mushrooms, but we actually got into an argument over these mushroom fillings. I took them out of the oven and he took a few samples. Sorry: If you want these mushroom fillings for yourself, you should request them as soon as possible.

…meaning, if you have a party or gathering close at hand, you should make this recipe perfectly. The topic of snack tables is a hit. A crispy, savory mixture of bread crumbs, pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoes, herbs and pecorino cheese fills juicy roasted mushroom caps. Easy to make and very delicious. We love them and hope you do too!

  • pine nuts and bread crumbs – Add crunch to the filling.

  • garlic – For a delicious bite.
  • extra virgin olive oil – Helps the mushrooms brown and soften in the oven.
  • and salt and pepper – To make every flavor pop!

How to make stuffed mushrooms

I love how easy this stuffed mushroom recipe is! Here are the steps:

First, clean the mushrooms and remove the stems. Carefully remove the mushroom stems and discard, being careful not to damage the mushroom heads. Next, wipe the mushroom caps clean using a damp paper towel and spread them hollow side up on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle the mushroom caps with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.

Next, make the filling. Mix grated cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, bread crumbs, garlic, pine nuts, salt and a pinch of black pepper.

Then stuff mushrooms. Spoon the filling into the cavity of the mushroom and stack it as high as possible. When you spoon the stuffing into the mushrooms, some may roll over. that’s ok! Do your best to get as much of each mushroom as possible.

And finally it’s time to bake! Drizzle the stuffed mushrooms liberally with oil and bake until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let it cool down a bit before eating!

Stuffed Mushroom Recipe Tips

  • Bigger mushrooms = more ingredients. Need I say more? Use the largest cremini mushrooms you can find for this recipe. They hold more of the crumb mixture than smaller ones, making them easier to fill.
  • Finely chop the ingredients. The best stuffing has a little bit of everything in every bite. Finely chop the filling ingredients and mix evenly with each other. Make sure the sun-dried tomatoes are about the size of a pine nut, and grate the cheese through the smallest hole in a microplane he zester or box grater.
  • Don’t forget to season the mushrooms. It’s easy to skip this step. Before filling the mushroom caps, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. This simple step adds flavor to this stuffed animal recipe.
  • Let’s eat them! These stuffed mushrooms are great as an appetizer for a party, but you may also have them for dinner. Serve them with a large scoop of herb farro or quinoa!
