Stuffed Mushrooms are an easy make-ahead appetizer and are jam-packed with flavor from three kinds of cheese, herbs, and spices. Making these cheesy stuffed mushrooms takes just a few ingredients and can be made ahead of time and stored until you’re ready. It’s very easy to make and super delicious!



Are mushrooms healthy? 

Mushrooms are naturally low in fat, calories. and are cholesterol-free. Mushrooms are rich in B vitamins such as riboflavin (B2), folate (B9), thiamine (B1), pantothenic acid (B5), and niacin B3) as well as copper, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.

This makes mushrooms a good appetizer for the holiday.

Tips for Cooking Stuffed Mushrooms 

  1. I recommend a stuffing that is completely cooked and just needs to be warmed.
  2. When cooking these mushrooms I wait until almost all of the liquid that the mushrooms have released in the bottom of the pan has evaporated before adding the cheese on top for the last step.
  3. You can make and refrigerate these mushrooms up to 24 hours.

You’ll more than likely have more filling than necessary. I over-stuff the mushrooms. The filling is thick and ideal for mounding up.

    These stuffed mushrooms were a delightful fusion of creamy, savory, and cheesy flavors, I loved how I was able to also refrigerate them before my guests arrived and just pop them in the oven. I think I will be making them again for Thanksgiving!
