Tarragon Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Updated on April 23, 2014

Tarragon and Mushrooms

One of those classic combinations is tarragon and mushrooms. There is just something about it that boosts the flavor into something amazing and unforgettable. Though there are many things that you can stuff into mushrooms, I will suggest my favorite way of stuffing mushrooms, and what mushrooms to actually use for the best impact.

What Kind of Mushroom?

There are many kinds of mushrooms across the world, and it will mainly depend on where you live as to what mushroom you actually get. Every type of mushroom has its own unique flavor depending on what it eats. For instance, the Shitake is wood grown and has a more wood like (in a good way) flavor because of it. Try out different types of mushrooms to see what you like. However, because it is mushrooms we are talking about - unless you know what you are doing you probably don't want to go out and forage on your own because some mushrooms are poisonous.


Tarragon Stuffed Mushrooms

So, below is what I think is the best method of stuffing mushrooms, but you can try it and see if you like it or not. The recipe itself came from Alton Brown and was presented on his show Good Eats and several books and websites. I have included an episode of Good Eats at the bottom of this page and encourage you to watch it. It is fun and educational, with a lot of good advice!

  • 1 batch sauteed mushrooms, in clarified butter if possible!
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • 10 large white mushroom caps
  • Bottle olive oil, to coat mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Small Bag Bread crumbs


  1. For an audio/video walk through watch the video! Preheat the oven to 350! The first 5 ingredients are for the filling. Pretty much all you have to do is saute a container of mushrooms, add the rest of the ingredients, and you have a delicious filling!
  2. For the mushrooms that will be filled - toss them in a large bowl with enough olive oil to coat them. Then add the rosemary, garlic and thyme so they coat before putting them open side down to roast in the oven for 10 minutes or until done - could be only 8 minutes.
  3. Put the broiler on high and move the rack up to the highest one. Fill the mushrooms with the mixture and then coat with a nice layer of bread crumbs before putting back in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Make sure you watch it carefully, broilers burn quick!
  4. Pull out and enjoy! Serve at parties or even just a great snack or meal!

Deconstructed Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are amazing. However they also take about 20 minutes of extra baking time, and sometimes that just isn't as good as a quicker way to do it. Though it is not the same, I would suggest actually cooking it all at the same time in the same dish. This means following the recipe and ingredients except cutting up the mushrooms and adding them to the sauté, using a little less cream and thickeners (bread crumbs), and just putting it all in a serving dish when you are ready to eat!

I hope you have found a good recipe or two to use - I know it is my favorite, and I just love the idea of stuffing mushrooms with mushrooms for all that amazing flavor! If you have a bit of time, I completely recommend watching Alton Brown's Good Eats episode below - but even more so just watching the whole series!

Happy cooking, and have fun!
