Ingredients and Variations

MUSHROOMS I like small brown or cremini mushrooms in this recipe for a richer flavor but white mushrooms work too. Any kind or size that can be filled will be great in this recipe!

FILLING A tasty blend of cream cheese and cheddar, bacon, and seasonings— then cook to melty perfection! Swap out whatever you’d like. These are super versatile.

VARIATIONS We also like to mix it up a little, try any of the following:

    • crabmeat
    • jalapenos
    • sausage or pepperoni
    • buffalo sauce & chicken (with blue cheese)
    • swap out the filling for spinach artichoke dip

How to Clean Mushrooms

Mushrooms are delicate and the best way to clean them is to brush off any loose dirt before using. Rinsing them in a colander is okay as long as they are dried immediately afterward with a clean cloth or paper towel. Mushrooms are very porous and they’ll absorb water and get mushy during the cooking process, so it’s best to try and keep them as dry as possible.

How to Make Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms

It’s as easy as 1,2,3 to make this incredibly savory and elegant appetizer.

  1. Remove cap from mushrooms, scoop out center.
  2. Mix cream cheese with other ingredients per recipe below.
  3. Spoon mixture into each mushroom cap. Place in a single layer in the Air Fryer and cook per recipe below.

Air Fryer Tip

Depending on your air fryer, the mushrooms can fall sideways as you open/close it. If this is the case, place the mushrooms on a piece of foil and fold up the sides to hold them upright or place them in a small baking pan and place in the air fryer.

  1. Thanks so much! These were so delicious. The temp was perfect. I followed your directions as printed. I also placed them in a 6 inch cake pan all snuggled in to prevent falling. My only regret is I had no jalapenos on hand.5 stars

  2. recipe looked good until I saw the amount of cream cheese. wow. I used ONE tablespoon and used 4 tablespoons of cheddar cheese in total. used rest of the ingredients as noted. dinner in spinach for the green onion. if love to share a photo but no option given. delicious without all the fat.

    1. Hi Angel, we would love to see a photo of your recipe! If you are on instagram tag us @spendpennies

  3. These were super easy and delicious! I added a few generous dashes of Worcestershire sauce for extra flavour. I will definitely make these again! Yum!5 stars

  4. I did try this and did a half of this recipe. I made about nine total and I did split this recipe in half. I really love the taste and texture. I think I overcooked it the first time by a minute or two but it didn’t taste bad at all. this recipe is really good and I will probably double the spices and seasoning. I would be very interested in seeing if I could turn this recipe into a seafood stuffed mushrooms using Crab meat. highly recommend this recipe the bacon gives it a nice texture. if you love stuffed mushrooms this is the one for you super easy to make very cheesy yum5 stars

  5. We really enjoyed this recipe. My husband and I are doing a “keto” diet and this recipe was perfect for a main meal for us. We baked in a 350° oven for 24 minutes. We could have made a side salad to serve with the mushrooms, but we were just to lazy. This recipe is a keeper.5 stars

  6. I just received an Air Fryer for Christmas. Never used one before but after reading the recipes from your site , I can wait to get started !
    Sharon Lambert4 stars

  7. If you use an oven, watch the mushrooms and remove them from oven as soon as you see water puddle under mushrooms, other wise they become too mushy. These are delicious when heated in an airfryer. Thank you! I ate too many.5 stars

  8. Absolutely delicious. Love how quick this came together. Only made a half recipe, and was just right as an hors d’oeuvre for two of us. Used greek cream cheese and regular diced onion. Held together well. Had a little leftover filling so I halved and seeded a jalapeno and stuffed that, oh my! Thank you Holly for another great recipe.5 stars

    1. Bake at 400F for 18-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and mushrooms are cooked. Enjoy Susan!

  9. I just bought an air fryer and came across your post ,,,I would like you to post more Air Frying recipes you are the only one that sort of makes it easy to understand
