Flavorful Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe is Perfect For Your Next Party — Or Any Time!

Pecorino and panko in the filling and the topping deliver a double dose of tangy crunch

Stuffed mushrooms might seem fancy enough to be reserved special occasions. And while these delightful bites do make the perfect party appetizer, they’re a breeze to whip up for a weeknight treat. You can even double the size of our Stuffed Mushrooms recipe and turn it into a vegetarian meal.

White buttons mushrooms are a classic for this dish. But for our recipe, we opt for creminis. They sport a light brown color and meaty texture loaded with rich umami flavor. We fill them with spinach, tomato, tangy cheese and panko breadcrumbs. Then, we sprinkle more cheese and panko on top. It creates a delicate crust that pairs perfectly with the moist filling and tender mushroom flesh. They turn out so mouthwateringly good, we guarantee you won’t be able to eat just one! Give ’em a try and let us know how you liked them in the comments section below.
