Hello again (or for the first time; I hope you stick around)! This recipe is a real crowd pleaser. It’s looks elegant, but it’s really simple to prepare.

It tastes amazing too. Each meaty cremini mushroom is filled with rich creamy cheesy filling with a crispy breadcrumb topping and then baked to deliciousness.

I hope you enjoy this recipe for Easy Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms!

How do you make these stuffed mushrooms?

Mushroom stems, parmesan cheese, parsley, green onions, cream cheese, and a garlic clove in a food processor.

In a food processor fitted with a S-shaped blade, first grate the parmesan cheese before adding in the remaining filling ingredients. Full ingredient amounts and instructions listed in the recipe card below.

Here Are Some Recipe Tips:

  • I prefer cremini (aka crimini aka baby bella mushrooms) over white button mushrooms as these brown mushrooms are more flavourful (it has a richer flavour and earthier notes).
  • Remember to thoroughly clean any dirt from the mushrooms, including the stems, as you will be using them in the filling. Do this right before putting the stuffed mushrooms together.
    • I know that there will be naysayers about this advice, but I usually give them a quick rinse and light scrub with my fingers under the faucet (slow running water) before drying with a clean cloth or paper towel. It’s way faster to clean vs. the often-suggested way of cleaning mushrooms individually with a damp cloth or a brush.
    • Check out this link on How to Prepare Mushrooms (and Whether to Wash Them) from Serious Eats.
  • Use parmesan cheese (Parmigiano Reggiano) from the block to ensure that cheese melts in a creamy texture when baked.
    • Freshly grated is greatly preferred. Pre-grated cheese can have an anti-caking ingredient (or stabilizer), which doesn’t allow it to melt well or cake up in hot temperatures.
    • For quick grating, I use the food processor to break down the hard cheese into a fine texture.

To sum up, these stuffed mushrooms are:

  • Savoury and delicious.
  • Easy to put together.
  • Great to make ahead:You can prepare the stuffed mushrooms a few hours ahead of time (cover and refrigerate) and then bake closer to serving.
  • Perfect as an appetizer or as a side dish:This recipe makes sixteen to eighteen stuffed mushrooms, so it can serve quite a few people, especially as side dish.
  • Great to serve at parties or at a get-together: It’s excellent finger food.
  • Scalable: It’s easy to scale up or down according to your needs.
