Stuffed mushrooms recipe with step by step photos – simple, easy and tasty recipe of baked stuffed mushrooms.

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

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. They can be just served plain too without any accompaniment. They make for a good party snack.

How to make stuffed mushrooms

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.

  1. Tried this today.. Excellent.. Thank you5 stars

    • Welcome Vandana

  2. OK and thnx alot

    • welcome aman.

  3. and don’t we need to add Green chilly and turmic powder.

    • this recipe is like a continental style recipe. so thats why green chilies and turmeric powder is not added. if you want, you can add. you can also add red chilli powder.

  4. can we use paneer instead of cheese?

    • you can use paneer.

  5. it was so juicy and yummy that it got over within seconds, even my 19 month old loved it?( and she is a fussy eater) so thanks a lot for the awesome recipe?5 stars

    • welcome amritha 🙂 glad your baby liked the stuffed mushrooms recipe. thanks for positive feedback and you are welcome.

  6. eske lyi nonstick tawa use krna padega ya fir iron vala bhi use kr skte hai

    • aman, use any of the tawa. non stick or iron tawa both will work.

  7. kya yeh dish oven k bina nhi ban skti actually I don’t have oven

    • aman, oven ke bina bhi ban sakte hain. tawe ko dheemi aanch par garam kare. thoda sa tel tawe par dal de. phir mushrooms ko rakhe. bilkul waise hi rakhe, jaise photo main, baking tray par rakha gaya hain. mushrooms ko dakhkhan/lid se cover kare. dheeme aanch ya sim pe pakaye. jab mushroom brown ho jaye aur pani chode, toh woh pak gaye hain. cheese bhi melt ho jayega.

      • My mushrooms released a lot of water and became very soft . They broke while eating. Any ideas ? Is it because of the moisture in the stalks or low temperature of the oven? Or because I washed mushrooms and not dry them properly ?

        • Also, I had a dish called mushroom saufiana once in a restaurant. Fennel and cheese. With some cream I suppose. I was hoping if u could help me crack that recipe too. Thanks. ?

        • i am hearing the recipe for the first time. for me i need to know whether is was dry dish or a gravy or a starter. but still difficult to guess.

        • they have got done too much. as soon as they begin to release water, the mushrooms are done. since the stalks are cooked, there is no moisture in them.
