Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms are stuffed with a mixture of finely chopped bread, goat cheese, scallions, and pepper. Once the mushrooms are filled, they are baked until warm, then broiled to brown the grated cheese on top.

  • 3 ounces day-old white bread (about 3 slices), crusts removed
  • 2 scallions, white and light-green parts only, roughly chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 3 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 ounce dry Monterey Jack or Parmesan, grated on small holes of box grater
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 48 button mushrooms (about 1 1/2 pounds), stems removed and caps cleaned


  1. Pulse the bread in the bowl of a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Place the scallions, bell pepper, and goat cheese in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse until finely chopped and well combined. Transfer mixture to the bowl with the breadcrumbs, and stir. Stir in the cilantro, half the grated Monterey Jack, salt, and pepper.

  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees; position rack in the
    center of oven. Place mushroom caps,
    cups facing upward, on a large cookie sheet.
    Spoon a heaping teaspoon of stuffing mixture
    into each cap. Bake until mushrooms
    are tender and filling is hot, 15 to 20 minutes.
    Remove mushrooms, turn oven to
    broil, and position rack about 4 inches from
    broiler. Sprinkle mushrooms with remaining
    grated cheese, and broil until cheese is
    golden, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note

The stuffing in step 1 can be made up to a day ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    I made these for a christmas party. They were a hit. I thought they were a bit salty so I'll use less next time.
