  • 1 pound baby bella mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 green onions chopped fine
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped fine
  • 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • pinch kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Wipe the mushrooms with a damp paper towel, or rinse and drain the mushrooms. Twist and remove the stems from the caps. Place the caps on a baking sheet and set them aside. Finely chop the stems.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, and chopped mushroom stems. Stir and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the bread crumbs, 1/2 cup of cheese, pepper, and salt. Stir to combine and cook until the cheese softens. Turn off the heat and let the stuffing mixture cool.
  • Spoon the stuffing into the mushroom caps when it is cool enough to handle. Pack in the filling lightly, and top with the remaining cheddar cheese.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes until the mushrooms have softened, and the cheese melts. Serve warm.
  • Yield: 15 to 20 stuffed mushrooms
