Italian Stuffed Mushrooms

Italian Stuffed Mushrooms
Merry-Merry-Christmas Eve! One of our favorite quick appetizers are these Italian Stuffed Mushrooms. They usually show up at all holiday celebrations because they are so easy to make. You can even throw them together early in the day and bake them off right as guests are arriving.

Having a hot appetizer that is so easy to make is a godsend on party day. I often double the recipe because they disappear so fast.

I hope you have a great day, have to get back to cooking as I am going to be making my Lobster Bisque, it's just not the holidays without it.

  1. Would you stop it? I already have so much stuff on my menu and now I want to add these! :) Merry Christmas from the Rocky Mountains. Hugs.

  2. Your stuffed mushrooms look terrific and I’m sure disappear very fast. Have a wonderful Christmas.

    I love, love, love your recipes. I wish I could make them all, there are just not that many parties in my immediate future. But, you better believe I will be making these very soon.

    Made a version of this, more like individual crust less pizzas in prebaked Portabello mushroom caps: Grilled the sausage with Italian seasoning, rosemary & garlic salt after light basting with olive oil; added a couple tablespoons of tomato paste stirred in & topped with shredded mozarella cheese; baked in 250 degree oven for 20 min. Delicious! Thanks for the inspiration~

    I’d like to add some Italian sausage to the mix. Should I brown the meat before mixing to eliminate the grease? Will ground beef or turkey be okay, also?

  11. Roberta 16

    Looks delicious. I will try the sausage stuffed mushrooms.

    Made these for Christmas Eve, and they were a HUGE hit! And so, so easy! Thank you!

    Can you make the stuffing a couple days in advance so on the day you just put it into the mushrooms and heat it up in the oven?

  14. Add pepperoni or canadian bacon finely chopped to make it have an extra kick.

  15. There is nothing like stuffed mushrooms especially these ones. I just wanted to say you can also stuff them with just sausage so good.
