Shroom stuffing, am I right? As I develop a recipe book for my fans in the cookbook work, I always start with a single ingredient. This time around, that ingredient is mushrooms for party foods. Fortunately, this ingredient has endless varieties of flavors, textures, smells, and tastes.

However, I am putting this as number one for this recipe roundup because, again, air frying.

This here is a recipe for some of the largest mushrooms that they sell in the standard stores. Portobellos are simply big enough to feed a person per mushroom. In terms of writing a cookbook for partygoers, portobellos just hit that perfect tone.

Word for word, pound for pound, these mushrooms are filled with chunky feta for a faux crab meat consistency. This makes a perfect suggestion for meals featuring meat alternatives.

The Best Ever Stuffed Mushrooms, they said, and I immediately balked at the suggestion. What makes something a Contest Winner and Best Ever recipe? Start with pork sausage, evidently, and build up the flavors of garlic and onion.

The cheese mixture is actually cream cheese plus Parmesan for a smooth yet powerful and not melty or stringy cheese. Yes, it does sound like the best-stuffed mushroom ever.

Again, we have the larger portobello caps that are stuffed in this recipe. The use of dried tart cherries and bread stuffing is coupled with pecans. A topping of melted fontina cheese rounds out the namesake of this tasty way to stuff a shroom.

I also think this would be an excellent Thanksgiving Day meal replacement thanks to the use of pecans and poultry seasoning.

Now, this is an interesting recipe–Cracker-Stuffed Mushrooms by Kraft Heinz. The recipe requires six ingredients and takes 35 minutes to complete. You do need to bake these stuffed mushrooms, which use the crackers crumbled up as a stuffing base.

It’s a great suggestion that lends a different flavor compared to the Thanksgiving vibes I get from the stuffed mushrooms using poultry seasoning. Plus, this is naturally a vegetarian party appetizer that could easily be made vegan.

Lots of Love Pepper and Quinoa Stuffed Mushrooms

Keeping up with the larger mushrooms, this recipe uses something called extra large brown mushrooms. Considering it comes from South Africa, the recipe may include a type of mushroom not common to the markets here in the US.

Finding a large mushroom alternative to the overly used portobello is not a problem in my opinion!

What to Make with Leftover Thanksgiving Stuffing and Mushrooms

The after-Thanksgiving struggle of making do with all of those leftovers brings up this recipe for Stovetop Stuffed Mushrooms. If you are hosting guests for the holiday weekend, use this recipe to make some quick and easy stuffed mushrooms. I will say, they have the weirdest title since you actually have to bake these in the oven and don’t use a stovetop at all.

However, using leftovers, and leftover stuffing at that, is always a win!

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms Using Wild Rice and Holiday Stuffing

Another holiday-infused stuffed mushroom recipe is this one for vegan stuffed mushrooms. It is the only one in the recipe roundup that uses rice as a stuffing or filling, and that’s sort of a shocker to me. It’s a great solution for bulking up dozens of appetizer bites in a flash.

They also call for using baby Bella mushrooms specifically along with dried cranberries, which is where the holiday flair is found.

Jimmy Dean Does Stuffed Mushrooms With Sausage

Pork sausage is the star ingredient in these stuffed mushrooms with this serving as the main filling. The sausage is cooked with the stems of the mushrooms to help boost nutrients and save on ingredients. That was a smart move!

They also use cream cheese and some breadcrumbs to help bind the sausage stuffing together. The finished stuffed mushrooms are topped and broiled with Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs.

You said it. This is a true battle to see which version of Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms could possibly be the best. Right behind Jimmy Dean we have Ree Drummond from the Food Network, and she uses spicy hot pork sausage.

Straight out of the gate, that is going to be a major flavor booster. She also goes in with dry white wine, sharp Cheddar cheese, chopped chives, and egg for binding these stuffed shrooms. I will have to say, these are certainly going to be more flavorful than the Jimmy Dean options!

What is a Boursin Stuffed Mushroom?

=> Click here for recipe
Ready for something new that you most likely have never heard of before now? Try a Boursin Stuffed Mushroom, which The Spruce Eats calls “party food.” Yes, I agree! This is a vegetarian stuffed mushroom that uses shredded canned artichoke for the main filling.

Seasoned bread crumbs and garlic and herbed Boursin cheese are equally important here for bringing the stuffing together. They use roasted red pepper–one of my favorite ingredients! I had a container of this the other day and opened it, smelling the sweet smoky scent and getting hungry.

Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms for Vegetarian Party Platters

Sometimes I just crave blue cheese and I do not know why as it is one of the truly moldiest looking cheeses on the market. The use of blue cheese with cream cheese and butter really makes these party-pleasing Low-Carb Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms by The Spruce Eats quite decadent. If you said they were in any way healthy, I simply would not believe you.

Yet there are no bread crumbs or meat filler in these. This makes it easier to feed more people and easier to eat, too, thanks to fewer crumbs, which is very thoughtful for a party event.

How Does the Olive Garden Do Stuffed Mushrooms?

=> Click here for recipe
One question I get a lot as someone who writes recipe books for parties is how different restaurants make certain foods or recipes. For example, how does the Olive Garden stuff their mushrooms? I have found this Copycat Olive Garden’s Clam Stuffed Mushrooms, and it looks thorough for sure.

They use more than a dozen ingredients and lots of cheese. In my opinion, they don’t use enough butter, with only one tablespoon. That’s simply not enough.

Italian Style Stuffed Clams to Compete With the Olive Garden

=> Click here for recipe
You knew this one was coming–I have a competitor recipe for the aforementioned OG clam stuffed mushrooms. This is an Italian version of Clam Stuffed Mushrooms that uses no cream cheese; by the way, the Olive Garden recipe also does not use cream cheese. In fact, the recipe creator states to have been inspired by the copycat recipe I just mentioned.

Here they only use Pecorino Romano cheese, and they, to my surprise, use panko breadcrumbs, which are Japanese. I’m going to call it–the actual copycat Clam Stuffed Mushrooms for Olive Garden wins.

Stuffing a Mushroom with Ham and Cheese Like a Hot Pocket

=> Click here for recipe
I have some party recipes for retro events where people really want foods they ate when they were a child, like Hot Pockets. While these are not pockets or hand pies, the Hand and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms by Kraft Heinz meets a lot of these requirements. Shredded cheddar cheese and deli-sliced smoked ham are matched by baby spinach and tomato slices for a miniature ham and cheese sandwich on a mushroom.

Getting More Greens in a Stuffed Mushroom

Since we are talking about putting baby spinach in a stuffed mushroom, let me introduce you to these Spinach and Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms. The recipe by Fine Cooking Magazine really goes in with the sandwich vibes by actually using white sandwich bread for the DIY breadcrumbs. Heavy cream is coupled with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese to create a sauce reduction.

They even use dry sherry in the sauce, along with that beautiful baby spinach. 

Back to the Sea With Lump Crab Meat Stuffed Mushrooms

Crab Meat Stuffed Mushrooms with curly parsley.

Can you tell I like seafood? Here I go again with another seafood stuffed mushroom option. This time, we have a lump crab meat-stuffed mushroom recipe.

Grab a pound of lump crab meat from the fish counter and you are all set! This recipe also suggests cremini mushrooms, which I personally prefer to the standard button since those are used so often. You would be amazed at the delicate flavor profiles that perk up when you just change the variety of a favorite food ingredient.

Also, instead of cream cheese, this recipe uses mayonnaise as a binder. It almost feels like a deviled egg on a mushroom.

More Crab Stuffed Mushrooms But With Cream Cheese

=> Click here for recipe
Now we are getting back to the use of cream cheese with this version of Crab Stuffed Mushrooms by Savory Tooth. The recipe here calls for an actual brick of cream cheese, which I have not actually read before. Recipe writers can be so creative!

They also use Parmesan cheese to balance out the flavors. In terms of these stuffed mushroom recipes, those that do use cheese work with both creamy and hard kinds of cheese.

Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms Without Cream Cheese

This is a great example of a recipe for stuffed mushrooms that do not use cream cheese for a binder, or even egg. Instead, you are developing the filling with fresh bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Flavors of garlic and oregano, plus Italian parsley, round out a nice profile of spices. 

Let’s Try a Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushroom!

Here is a stuffed mushroom recipe that takes advantage of another creamy soft cheese, goat cheese. While that cheese is thrilling, the use of pancetta is also a star performer. This is fabulous party food with plenty of pep as the stuffed mushrooms also have roasted pumpkin seeds.

The cheese mixture of goat cheese is accented with chopped arugula, making this recipe ideal for sneaking in those greens.

I am so curious about these Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms by Parade Magazine. They are pure pleasure with the use of pork sausage and cream cheese, and no bread crumbs in sight. If you are planning gluten-free party food, this is a great option for you.

The parsley and garlic powder that goes into the seasonings are light enough to spice things up without overwhelming their taste buds.

Make a Day Ahead Stuffed Mushrooms

=> Click here for recipe
A key step in planning an event and feeding a crowd is making food ahead of time. Here is a recipe that allows you to make stuffed mushrooms and let them sit in the fridge for a day or two. I will say, there is not a lot going on with these mushrooms, which may be the reason you can let them linger without ruining the flavors or textures.

Dried bread crumbs are made beforehand, or you can use store-bought ones. They also use shallots as the onion option, which makes this a more modern recipe in my opinion. 

Chorizo Stuffed Mushrooms by McCormick

=> Click here for recipe
You know the spice brand McCormick? Well, they have a lot of great recipes that star their seasonings, including Chorizo Stuffed Mushrooms. These mushrooms are made with only six ingredients and in 45 minutes–perfect for late-night dinner guests or after-party noshing.

That’s the best time to eat heavily flavored meats like chorizo, which is wonderful Mexican breakfast sausage. This recipe also uses queso fresco, thyme, and onion to keep things simple and Spanish-infused.
