When we are entertaining, more often than not, these cream cheese stuffed mushrooms will make an appearance. Super easy to make, they can be prepped ahead of time too, so they are perfect for a fuss free bite.

Creamy and cheesy, these vegetarian stuffed mushrooms are always a hit. Italian breadcrumbs add some great texture and flavor to each bite, and the baked mushrooms come out so juicy.

How to make cream cheese stuffed mushrooms

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Carefully remove the stems from the mushrooms. Place the mushrooms on a baking sheet. Chop the mushroom stems.

How do you prep the mushrooms?

You need to clean the mushrooms to remove any loose dirt. If you prefer to rinse them under running water, make sure to fully dry them before proceeding with the recipe. Or you can simply wipe them with a damp cloth. If you like, you can also peel away the outer skins. Carefully remove the stems by pulling and bending them a little.

Can you make them ahead of time?

This is a great dish that you can prep ahead of time, so all you have to do is pop them into the oven when you are ready to serve. You can make the filling and stuff the mushrooms, then keep them covered in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

If you have any leftovers, they will keep well for around 3 days, and can be reheated in the oven at 360F for 5 to 10 minutes to warm them through to serve.

You can also freeze them. You can freeze them uncooked, though you’ll get better results freezing once cooked as they’ll absorb less moisture. Let them cool and freeze solid on a baking sheet before storing them in an container or freezer bag. You can reheat them from frozen at 360F for around 15 to 20 minutes.

What are the best mushrooms to use?

I used white cremini mushrooms for this recipe, and baby bella will also work well. If you want to turn these into a sit-down appetizer, you can easily adapt this recipe to make them with larger portobello mushrooms.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Avoid soggy mushrooms by not soaking the mushrooms to clean them, and bake them at a high temperature (400F) to allow the steam to escape.
  • If you are making a double batch, don’t overcrowd your baking sheet. Allow them some room so that the moisture can easily escape.
  • You can easily add in other ingredients to suit your tastes. A little Dijon mustard or Worcestershire sauce works wonders!
