Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Hi everyone! Today’s recipe seems to be a staple appetizer for any party. They also happen to be one of my Hubby’s favorite snacks! So, of course being the amazing wife that I am *snicker* I made these for him and he loved them!

Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms, a perfect twist on a classic appetizer for any party!

I wanted to mix it up a bit from the traditional stuffed mushrooms with sausage and breadcrumbs. I used a beef mixture, adding mozzarella and cream cheese for a nice richness.

Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms, a perfect twist on a classic appetizer for any party!

Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms


  • 1 pound baby bella mushrooms or crimini
  • 1/3 pound ground beef
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp crushed fennel
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 Tbls parmesan cheese
  • 3 Tbls white wine
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 Cup mozzarella
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Using a damp cloth or paper towel. Brush off the dirt from the mushrooms. Pop off the stems from the caps and set aside. Chop the stems finely.
  2. Mix the dried spices in with the ground beef. Brown the beef mixture and let fat drain off. Remove the beef and let cool.
  3. Reserving 1 Tbls of the beef drippings, add the garlic over medium low heat to the same pan you cooked the meat in and cook until aromatic about 1 minute. Add the wine to the skillet and deglaze, allow most of the liquid to evaporate. Add in the chopped mushroom stems and cook for 2 minutes until softened. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.
  4. Put the softened cream cheese in a bowl and mix in the egg yolk. Add the cooled beef and mushroom stem mixtures. Add in remaining cheeses and mix so everything combines.
  5. Stuff the mushroom caps, allowing a heaping amount on top. Place in an oven safe dish.
  6. Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, until slightly golden brown on top.
  7. Serve warm and enjoy!

    I LOVE stuffed mushrooms! Pinning these for later 🙂 Thanks for linking up to Let’s Get Real!

  6. Hi Dana! These look so good. Like most, I am familiar with sausage stuffed mushrooms. These with the added cheese will certainly be divine. Mushrooms are so good for building up our immune system. Who says I can’t have mine with beef and cheese? Not I! I am going to make these tonight.

    I found you on the Thrifty Thursday link up and I’m so glad I did! These look delicious. I love that they don’t have bread crumbs, since we eat gluten-free in my home. Can’t wait to try them.
