STEP 1: Remove the stems from the mushroom caps. Use a sharp knife or food processor to chop the mushroom stems.

Ingredient notes and substitutions

Mushrooms – I like to use baby bella mushrooms (cremini mushrooms) when I make stuffed mushrooms.

You can also use different types of mushrooms such as white button mushrooms and even portobello mushrooms for larger-sized stuffed mushrooms.

Onions – Green onions are mild in flavor and are perfect for making stuffed mushrooms. If they aren’t available, you can use sweet onions.

Garlic – Fresh garlic always tastes better, but if it’s not available, you can substitute it with 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder.

White wine – Any variety of white wine, I like to use Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, or Sauvignon Blanc. White wine can also be substituted with an equal amount of red wine.

Spinach and feta stuffed mushrooms – Add a handful of chopped spinach and a splash of lemon juice to the breadcrumbs in the skillet and instead of parmesan cheese, use feta cheese crumbles.

Sun-dried tomatoes – Mix chopped sun-dried tomatoes into the stuffing mix and top the mushrooms with shredded mozzarella cheese

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms – Replace the butter with olive oil and the cheese with your favorite vegan cheese or nutritional yeast.

Vegetable Stuffed Mushrooms – Add a few tablespoons of chopped green pepper, red pepper or zucchini to the stuffing mixture.

Alcohol-Free Stuffed Mushrooms – Replace the wine with equal vegetable or chicken broth.

How to store leftovers

Store leftover mushrooms in an airtight container for up four days. Reheat leftover mushrooms in the oven at 350 degrees f, or in the microwave.


  • Don’t overstuff the mushrooms! While it might be tempting to pack in the filling, leave some room to allow the filling to expand during baking.
  • Press the filling down as you stuff the mushrooms to prevent the stuffing from falling out.
  • For easy clean-up, use parchment paper to line the baking sheet. It will also prevent the mushrooms from sticking to the pan.
  • Use panko breadcrumbs for best results they add a nice texture to the stuffing mixture.
Can I make stuffed mushrooms ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare stuffed mushrooms ahead of time for later use. After assembling the mushrooms with stuffing, place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. When you are ready to serve them, remove them from the fridge and allow to sit until they reach room temperature. Add a little bit of cheese on the top and bake them.

Can I freeze stuffed mushrooms?

It is not recommended to freeze stuffed mushrooms due to their high water content. Once thawed out, they may become mushy.
