Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms

Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms are a delightful and savory appetizer that combines the earthy flavor of mushrooms with a rich, cheesy filling. They’re perfect for parties, gatherings, or as a tasty side dish. Here’s how to make them:


  • 24 whole fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs or regular breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley (optional for color and flavor)
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Additional grated Parmesan cheese for topping


  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Mushrooms:
    • Preheat your oven to 350Β°F (175Β°C).
    • Clean the mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove the stems. Chop the stems finely and set aside.
  2. Cook Mushroom Stems:
    • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and chopped mushroom stems, sautΓ©ing until the moisture has evaporated and the stems are tender. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  3. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a bowl, combine the cooked stem mixture, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan, chopped parsley, and cream cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix until well combined.
  4. Stuff the Mushrooms:
    • Using a small spoon, fill each mushroom cap with a generous amount of the stuffing mixture. Place the stuffed mushrooms on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake:
    • Sprinkle the tops of the stuffed mushrooms with additional grated Parmesan.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the tops are golden brown.
  6. Serve:
    • Serve the Parmesan stuffed mushrooms warm, garnished with extra parsley if desired.

Enjoy these Parmesan stuffed mushrooms as a delicious starter or side. They’re best enjoyed fresh out of the oven while the filling is warm and the cheese on top is beautifully melted and slightly crispy.
