Herb and Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Turn plain mushrooms into a fancy (and easy!) appetizer with the help of panko bread crumbs, goat cheese, and pine nuts. Your guests might think you spent all day in the kitchen, but we won't tell them that these mouthwatering mushroom bites took less than an hour.

Classic Stuffed Mushrooms

Sometimes you just can't make a classic any better—especially when these classic stuffed mushrooms are creamy, cheesy, and garlicky. The only challenge you'll have with this easy recipe is keeping them stocked on your appetizer table.

Chipotle and Ranch Stuffed Mushrooms

Dressing isn't just for salads! You can make stuffed mushrooms even more creamy and delicious by stirring in your favorite salad dressing mix with cream cheese and chipotle peppers.

Stuffed Mushrooms with Lemon-Pea Hummus

We know you're used to making hummus with chickpeas, but hear us out: Fresh peas and a few sprigs of mint can be just as creamy and delicious. Add a quick sprinkle of melting cheese on top to make these veggie-filled mushrooms a little indulgent, too.

Sure, these stuffed mushrooms have the usual bread crumbs and cheese in the stuffing, but we took this classic appetizer recipe to the next level by mixing in chopped chicken and golden raisins. Just trust us—you won't have any leftovers when you serve these mushrooms.

Step up your usual stuffed-mushroom recipe by mixing in crumbles of blue cheese and toasted walnuts. The stuffing starts with everything we love about this classic appetizer—bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and sour cream—but ends with an added burst of creaminess and crunch.

Stuffed Mushrooms

You can't go wrong with buttery bread crumbs, cheddar cheese, and crispy bacon. Luckily, these stuffed mushrooms are piled high with all three before being baked to tender perfection.

Guacamole-Stuffed Marinated Mushrooms

We know just what your fiesta is missing: mushrooms! Stuffed mushrooms may not seem like a classic Mexican appetizer, but we gave them a zesty twist by soaking mushrooms in a zippy marinade and finishing with a creamy guacamole stuffing. No chips needed for this guacamole starter.
