Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms Final 1Are you a mushroom lover or a hater? If you are in the happy loving mushroom camp, have I got a ground breaking, life-altering recipe for you! If you’re a hater, then I’m really very sorry for your loss. They are tasty little fungi.

Most people in my family are on the haters side, fortunately.  Yes, I said fortunately. This way I can hog these stuffed little babies all to myself because they are goo-ood. Creamy, salty, ooey-gooey little- -piece-of-heaven-you-never-want-to-stop-eating kind of good. And they’re super simple to make! I had everything on hand yesterday. Of course, everyone likes different things on their pizza, so adjust accordingly!

Start out first with some cream cheese, parmesan cheese and spices in a bowl.

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray two mini iron skillets with non stick cooking spray and set aside. (A sheet tray will work just fine, too!)
  2. Wash mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove stems. (They should just pop out!) Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, stir cream cheese, parmesan, basil, oregano, garlic salt and pepper together until combined. Stir in remaining ingredients, excluding the mushrooms.
  4. Spoon into prepared mushroom caps by the heaping teaspoonful. Place 5 in each skillet and bake 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, switch your oven from bake to broil and brown the tops of each mushroom. Remove and serve hot.

  2. I am trying to teach myself to like mushrooms but it’s pretty hard going however even I think these look amazing and I reckon I could devour a fair few!

  3. Put me on “Team Mushroom”! Love them – and love this idea. Such a clever departure from traditional stuffed mushrooms, and with a much broader appeal than something like a crab-stuffed mushroom – there are a lot of seafood haters out there too! Great party appetizer idea – without the added calorie load of puff-pastry.
