What goes in Stuffed Mushrooms?
Sometimes when I’m in a hurry, I make these easy stuffed mushrooms. Simply fill them with salsa, top with cheese and bake. It couldn’t be easier.
What kind of salsa to use
I generally use a medium store bought salsa (and pre-shredded cheese) to make these crazy easy. You can certainly use Homemade Salsa or hot salsa if you prefer. I don’t recommend a fresh pico de gallo for this recipe as the tomatoes have too much water.
These little mushrooms are so good, they almost taste like little pizza bites (without any effort).
How to Make Stuffed Mushrooms
This recipe is definitely the easiest that I’ve ever made. Mushroom caps are hollowed out and simply filled with a spoonful of salsa. I top them with a little bit of pre-shredded cheese and bake until golden and bubbly. Seriously that easy.
- WASH MUSHROOMS To prepare the mushrooms, I gently wipe them with a damp cloth and remove the stems.
- REMOVE CORE I use a tomato corer to scoop out a little bit of the flesh (yep, more filling). It’s actually a handy little tool for under $5 that can core tomatoes (obviously), hull strawberries, pick out spots on potatoes etc.
- FILL the mushrooms with salsa, top with cheese and bake.
As for those mushroom stems, you don’t need them in this recipe but keep them. A little mushroom stem recipe I use is to chop them, fry them up with garlic butter, add a touch of heavy cream and a pinch of thyme and put them on toast or crackers. Yum right? Or freeze them and toss them into your next soup.
