For the stuffing, I have used mushroom stalks with herbs and cheese. Also I have made the recipe with white button mushrooms. You can also use cremini mushrooms. You can choose the spices, herbs and stuffings to suit your taste.

Baked stuffed mushrooms are an easy and quick snack that does not require much cooking skills. There are many variations of making this recipe. I am sharing the method which I follow at home and find it easy as well as tasty.

Stuffed mushrooms should be served immediately otherwise with time they become soggy and you won’t get the best flavor. So have them hot with any dip of your choice like tomato ketchup or mayo dip or cilantro chutney or mint chutney.

They can be just served plain too without any accompaniment. They make for a good party snack or finger food snack. You can make a large batch of this recipe to feed a crowd.

1. First rinse and wipe dry 400 grams white button mushrooms. Slice off a bit of the muddy part of the stalks and discard them. then just break each stalk from the mushrooms.
