Stuffed mushrooms make an easy and delicious snack for any party or gathering. You can stuff them with meat, cheese, a seafood mixture, or a simple herbed breadcrumb mixture. Here you'll find several recipes for stuffed mushrooms, suitable for parties, gatherings, and family snacks.


  • Because they absorb liquids, most mushrooms are best cleaned with a minimum of water. Use a damp paper towel or a specialty mushroom brush to clean the caps and stems. 
  • To prepare white button or crimini (baby bella) mushrooms for stuffing, twist the stems to remove them. Chop the stems to use in the stuffing or discard them.
  • Portobello mushrooms—the larger version of the crimini mushroom—require more prep than smaller mushrooms. Wipe the caps with a damp paper towel to clean. Slice the stem off and discard it if it's woody; if it isn't, chop it and use it in the stuffing if you'd like. With a small spoon, scoop out the gills. Even though the gills edible, they will darken and discolor everything they touch. Plus, after you scrape out the gills, you'll have more room for the stuffing.
