Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Inspiration

As a cooking enthusiast, I often see food that I want to cook in my kitchen. This was true from the very moment I laid my eyes on a stuffed Portobello mushroom in a local deli. Not only did I discover they were easy to make but my guests found them irresistible. The first time I served them at a party, my guests actually demanded I make a second plate. Since then, I have served stuffed mushrooms at barbeques, potlucks, and tailgating parties. By default I make two plates. :-)

Create Your Own Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Recipe

I settled on feta cheese as my “mushroom filler”. I love the taste that feta cheese delivers to this recipe. However, I encourage you to try other “filler” ideas. Here are some popular options:

  • Cream Cheese and Sausage
  • Cream Cheese and Spinach
  • Chopped Walnuts and Garlic
  • Cheddar Cheese and Onions
  • Crab Meat and Parmesan Cheese
