Stuffed Mushroom Caps

Updated on September 24, 2015

This recipe was modified from Joyful Healthy Eats. I simplified the ingredients and adjusted the prep time.

First Times

My fiancé has never had stuffed mushrooms before! I know, crazy, right?! So I obviously HAD to make some. For his sake...

The great thing about stuffed mushrooms is the simplicity. There's very little prep involved, and you can use as little ingredients as you want! I opted for a basic recipe. Soon I'll have to jazz it up and make a "fancier" stuffed mushroom. But, for now, let's keep it simple.

Set It Out

I like to get out all the ingredients and do any small prep work before starting any other part of a recipe. It's so much better than trying to run around the kitchen grabbing ingredients as I go! (Yes, I admit, I HAVE done that many a time!)

Pop Those Caps

De-stemming mushrooms is pretty easy! I'm always careful while doing this, because I don't want to tear the mushroom cap. Can't hurt to be gentle!

Food Processor = Life Saver

A food processor simplifies this recipe- no need to mince or chop beforehand! It's my least favorite thing to wash, but I make sure to soak it in warm soapy water right after I'm finished. Makes washing all the pieces MUCH easier.

Fill Those Caps

I found it difficult to get the cheese mixture in without it sticking to the spatula. Scooping a bigger-than-needed amount of the cheese mixture helped- I could scrape some off if needed.

      Nice recipe, these look really good and I love appetizer recipes. On a side note, it looks like your font has been made really small. It makes it a little difficult to read. Just a thought that you might want to change it to the default font.
