To turn them into a vegetarian main course, serve with rice! 

Stuffed mushrooms taste like juicy soft mushrooms with a wonderful roasted flavor and a creamy cheese filling made of cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and fresh parsley. Every bite is a delight!

Grilling stuffed mushrooms is easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time. Since we’re not a fan of foodwaste, the mushroom stems are also utilized in this recipe. This does involve an extra step, but it’s worth it. Not only do you get to use the whole mushroom, but the stuffing automatically becomes much tastier with sautéed mushroom stems than if you would just stuff them with cream cheese.

🛒 Ingredients

See recipe card for quantities.

Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms Ingredients
  • Mushrooms → I recommend using large cremini/button mushrooms or portobello mushrooms. Larger mushrooms are a little easier to stuff.
  • Olive Oil, Garlic, Shallot → For more flavor! Onion or scallion works too instead of shallot. If you like extra garlic, sprinkle some garlic powder into the filling.
  • Cream Cheese & Parmesan → The main ingredients of the creamy filling! Cream cheese can be replaced by crème fraîche. If you like a more intense cheese flavor, substitute parmesan cheese with grated cheddar cheese, blue cheese, or go for a cheese mixture of your choice.
  • Fresh Italian Parsley → Parsley and mushrooms go so well together. Can be replaced with dried parsley. 
  • Salt & Black Pepper  To taste.

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms: Use dairy-free cream cheese. Omit Parmesan cheese or replace it with dairy-free grated cheese.
