On one of our first dates, my boyfriend bought me stuffed mushrooms just like these at our local farmer’s market.
At the time, I had recently moved into town, and I was amazed by the market’s selection of fresh seafood, farm-fresh goodies, and other wonderful stuff – and how much of a good time I was having with who I thought was “just another guy.”
Two years later, that’s still one of my favorite memories. We haven’t had those mushrooms since then, though they were absolutely delicious. I thought it would be fun to try making them and see if he would remember having them that day at the farmer’s market.
It’s wonderful to have someone in my life who I can surprise with experimental recipes, tasty treats, and of course, my newfound obsession with mushrooms. He sure is special, after all!
Okay, I’m sure I’m ruining your appetite with my mushy story. Onto the recipe, lovers!
I used baby bella mushrooms because of their depth of flavor, but I think next time I will use white button mushrooms because they’re more consistent in size.
There are many ways to make stuffed mushrooms. If you’re not a fan of cream cheese, you can use some light mayo instead.
Measuring isn’t a priority for this recipe. If you have a lot of mushrooms to stuff, you can add more breadcrumbs to help the stuffing go further.
If you’d like to make them more of a main course than a side dish or appetizer, you can use portobellos for some big beautiful stuffed mushrooms.

Whether you’re not eating any animal products or just want to trim some meat from your diet, I’m here to help.
I personally would call myself a Blenditarian (a term coined by The Mushroom Council), someone who uses mushrooms to replace OR to blend with meat whenever I can.
Mushrooms are much more sustainable vs. growing meat and even other produce, they’re full of nutrients, and they’re just so versatile.
If you can’t bear the thought of compromising flavor for health, you’ve come to the right recipe blog. With healthy mushroom recipes, you don’t have to choose.
