Method 1
Simple Stuffed Mushrooms

  1. 1
    Preheat your oven to 400°F (204°C).[1]
  2. 2
    Create the filling of the mushrooms. To make the filling for the stuffed mushrooms, stir together 1/2 cup Italian-style dried bread crumbs, 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano, 2 peeled and minced garlic cloves, 2 tbsp. chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves, and 2 tbsp. olive oil in a medium bowl. Stir well to blend the ingredients together.
  3. 3
    Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. 4
    Drizzle 1 tbsp. of olive oil over a heavy large baking sheet. Coat the sheet in the oil. This will prevent the mushrooms from burning or sticking to the sheet.
  5. 5
    Remove the stems from 28 large (2 1/2-inch-diameter) mushrooms. Wipe off the mushrooms with a paper towel to clean them. Removing the stems will create a nice cavity for the filling.
  6. 6
    Spoon the filling into the mushroom cavities.
  7. 7
    Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the filling in each mushroom. This will make the filling taste even richer.
  8. 8
    Bake the mushrooms for about 25 minutes. Place the stuffed mushrooms in the oven once it's ready. Bake them until they're tender and the filling is heated and golden on top.
  9. 9
    Serve. Enjoy these mushrooms as the perfect side dish, or even as an entrée.

Method 2
Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon

  1. 1
    Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).[2]
  2. 2
    Remove the stems from 1 lb. of button mushrooms. Chop the stems finely -- you'll be using in the stuffing. You should also scoop out a bit of the insides of the mushrooms with a spoon to make room for the stuffing.
  3. 3
    Make the stuffing. Place 3 slices of finely-chopped bacon, 1/2 cup of chopped onion, 1 finely-chopped clove of garlic, and the chopped stems together in a frying pan. Sauté them together in 2 tbsp. of olive oil. Cook them until the onion is soft and the stems have softened. This should take about 3-5 minutes.
  4. 4
    Drain the olive oil from the mixture.
  5. 5
    Stir in the remaining ingredients. Stir in 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup of soft breadcrumbs, 1/4 tsp. of oregano, and 1/4 tsp. of salt into the mixture. Gently mix the ingredients until they are all combined.
  6. 6
    Place the stuffing in the mushroom caps.
  7. 7
    Place the mushroom caps on a cookie sheet.
  8. 8
    Bake them for 10 minutes. Bake them for ten minutes -- long enough for the cheese to melt, but not long enough to burn the ingredients.
  9. 9
    Serve. Enjoy this delicious treat on its own or with a dollop of sour cream.

Method 3
Baked Stuffed Mushrooms with Crab

  1. 1
    Stem 24 large mushrooms. Just pop off their stems and gently scoop out their insides with a spoon.[3]
  2. 2
    Butter a 10 x 15-inch baking dish.
  3. 3
    Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  4. 4
    Make the egg mixture. Combine 1 large egg, 1 large tbsp. of mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. of lemon juice, 1 tsp. of dry mustard, 1 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce, and 1/4 tsp. of salt in a medium bowl. Whisk the ingredients together until they're blended.
  5. 5
    Combine the crabmeat and breadcrumbs. Just combine 1 lb. of crabmeat and 1/4 cup of dry breadcrumbs in a separate bowl.
  6. 6
    Pour the egg mixture over the crab mixture. Mix the ingredients together gently, being careful not to break up the crab.
  7. 7
    Stuff the mushroom caps with the crab mixture. Mound the mixture in the center and press it gently to have it stick to the mushrooms.
  8. 8
    Arrange the mushrooms on the baking dish. Separate them from one another.
  9. 9
    Place the baking dish in the center of the oven. Bake the mushrooms for about 18 minutes, until they begin to release their juices.
  10. 10
    Make the topping sauce. While the mushrooms are baking, you should whisk together the other large egg, 1 cup of mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. of lemon juice, and 2 tbsp. of half and half in a small bowl.
  11. 11
    Remove the mushrooms from the oven.
  12. 12
    Drizzle each mushroom with the topping sauce. This will give them an even richer flavor.
  13. 13
    Bake the mushrooms for 8 more minutes. Wait for the sauce to thicken slightly but be careful not to burn the mushrooms.
  14. 14
    Serve. Enjoy these mushrooms as they are, or sprinkle them with a bit more lemon juice.

Method 4
Three Kinds of Stuffed Mushrooms

  1. 1
    Prepare the mushrooms. Remove the stems and use a teaspoon to scoop out the insides of the mushrooms. Heat a frying pan over a medium-high temperature.[4]
  2. 2
    Cook the mushrooms. When the pan is hot, add about 2/3 oz. (20 g.) of butter and half of the mushrooms. Coat the mushrooms in the butter and cook them until they're nicely seared. Season them with salt and pepper and then transfer the cooked mushrooms onto a tray. Repeat the process with the rest of the 20 g. of butter and the other half of the mushrooms.
  3. 3
    Make a blue cheese filling. Mix 2 tbsp. of chopped walnuts, 1 peeled and diced pear, and 1/8 oz. (4 g.) of blue cheese together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. This filling will be sweet, creamy, and crunchy.
  4. 4
    Make a butter mix. Mix 1 3/4 oz. (50 g.) of butter, 3 cloves of minced garlic, 2 tbsp. of chopped parsley, 3 tbsp. of bread crumbs and 1 tbsp. of Parmesan together in another bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. 5
    Make the chicken liver mix. Heat about 20 grams (2/3 ounces) of butter in a small frying pan. Add 4 quartered large chicken livers, 1/2 of a peeled and diced green apple, and 1 chopped shallot into the heated butter. Stir the ingredients until they are combined in the heat.
  6. 6
    Pour 2 tbsp. of port wine over the chicken liver mix. Heat the mix for another minute and then remove it from the heat.
  7. 7
    Stuff and grill the mushrooms. Stuff four mushrooms with the blue cheese mix, four mushrooms with the butter mix, and four mushrooms with the chicken liver mix. Grill the stuffed mushrooms for about 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and caramelized.
  8. 8
    Serve. Remove the mushrooms from the heat and wait for them to cool off for 1-2 minutes. Then serve them with a sprinkle of chives.
