Cheesy Stuffed Mushrooms

We've been eating these stuffed mushrooms for years!
Time to share with you - a delicious and flavorful appetizer that's easy to make.

Do you like mushrooms?

For most it's a love or hate vegetable - and that's okay! I love them and always have. I think it's because growing up every single time we ordered pizza as a family, one pizza pie was ALWAYS sausage and mushroom. Always.

And we ate a lot of pizza growing up, therefore I ate a lot of mushrooms.

On top of that, my Mom always made these mushrooms around the holidays, especially in recent years. I think I've tweaked her recipe a bit, but they are generally the same.

A sleeping baby could probably make these mushrooms, they are that simple!

Grab a package of button mushrooms from the store, mix a few ingredients together, stuff them to the brim and bake! Honestly, they could not be easier.

Over the years I've experimented with stuffing them with all sorts of foods - crab, lobster, pickled jalapenos, pulled pork - but more often than not I keep it the same and just add the chopped bacon to the cheese mixture.

No one ever complains!

Did you know to never fully rinse mushrooms? 

They are like a sponge so if you run them under cold water, they absorb that water and well.....become watery! And you don't want that. To clean them simply damp a paper towel with a bit of water and wipe them off. Mushrooms always have a bit of dirt of them {that's normal}, so just gently wipe it off and they'll be ready.

Then by pulling out the stem, the mushrooms will have a perfectly centered well to stuff them to the gills.

Oh my word, these are tasty!

Super cheesy, garlicky, almost with a meaty texture to them from the mushroom and FULL of flavor. They make the perfect side dish or party appetizer.

They also freeze well! This recipe makes a batch of 21 stuffed mushrooms. I ended up baking half of them and freezing the other half for another night. They can be baked straight from the freezer, no need to even thaw.

I hope you guys print this one off and stuff it away for safe keeping. I promise your family {or guests as they are great for a party} will love them. They are great to eat straight from the oven or at room temperature.

I'd love a star rating review below on the recipe card if you have an extra moment! Those reviews help others to know if they should make them.
