The Best Stuffed Mushrooms Ever (Recipe)

The Best Stuffed Mushrooms Ever (Recipe)

You don’t need to be throwing a cocktail party to make these tasty bites! Stuffed mushrooms have been one of my weekday dinner mainstays lately. And for good reason — they’re just so adaptable! Though I’ve tried several different recipes, this one (with a little tweaking to how the mushrooms are cooked) is my hands-down favorite. I like to mix it up a little, substituting flat-leaf parsley, thyme, rosemary or any other fresh herbs I have on hand for the chives.

Chive and Shallot Stuffed Mushrooms


  • 1 Pound fresh white mushrooms; stems removed, chopped and set aside; whole caps reserved
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 Small shallot, finely minced
  • Fine sea salt, to taste
  • 1/3 Cup heavy cream
  • 2 Teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons finely minced fresh chives

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange mushroom caps face down on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, until some liquid has formed below the caps. Remove from oven, and carefully transfer caps to a plate, placing the caps face up. Set aside for now.
3. Melt butter in a small frying pan over high heat. Stir in shallot, season with a pinch of salt, cover, and cook for 2 minutes, or until the shallots have softened but aren’t yet browned. Stir in chopped mushroom stems, cream and lemon juice. Cover the pan again and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and set aside.
4. Carefully spoon the stem-cream-lemon mixture into the mushroom caps. Sprinkle chopped chives evenly over each cap.

So nice for a simple recipe. I am starving since becoming a vegetarian 25 years ago. It is so hard cooking for people who will eat chicken, pork, no beef allowed in my house. I only ate the vegetable & the pasta. STARVING!! hehe!!
