No one is on the fence about mushrooms: You either love ’em or you hate ’em.
If you hate them, come back tomorrow to see what else I’m cooking! If you’re a mushroom lover like me, you’ll want to try this recipe ASAP.
What do you stuff a mushroom with?
This filling starts with a combination of cream cheese and Parmesan cheese so it’s warm and gooey. I added a bit of mayonnaise for a creamier texture and some sliced green onions for color (and because they taste so good!).
To all of that, stir in a the star ingredient: a jar of finely chopped marinated artichoke hearts. They have a rich, briny flavor with a hint of sweetness. Feel free to bust out your food processor to make chopping easier!
How do you make breadcrumbs?
Homemade breadcrumbs are easy to make and they taste so much better than store-bought bread crumbs.
If you the freezer space, get in the habit of saving the heels of stale bread in the freezer. If you’re using fresh bread, you can dry it out in a 300-degree oven in about 15 minutes (just place it on a baking sheet).
Pulse the bread in a food processor or blender until finely ground (add the bread in small batches).
Alternatively, smash the dried bread in a bag with a rolling pin.
What temp do you cook stuffed mushrooms?
Bake these vegetarian stuffed mushrooms in a 350-degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
How long can you keep mushrooms in the fridge?
Raw mushrooms are best left whole and stored in the refrigerator in a paper bag. They will keep about 4 to 7 days this way.
Chopped or sliced raw mushrooms will last about 1 to 2 days in the refrigerator. For this reason, I always purchase whole mushrooms and slice them myself unless I’m using them immediately.
What cheese is used for stuffed mushrooms?
I always start with cream cheese and then add something else, in this case Parmesan but mozzarella is also a good choice. Cheddar, Gruyere, and Swiss are also delicious depending on your other filling ingredients.
In my Crab Stuffed Mushrooms, I use a combination of cream cheese and mozzarella. Amazing!
Can you make Stuffed Mushrooms ahead?
You can easily prepare them in advance by cleaning the mushrooms and removing the stems; cover and keep in the refrigerator until stuffing time.
Mix the filling in advance too; it will actually taste better since the flavors will have more time to blend.
