Ingredients

  • 30 medium raw button mushrooms (about 1 1/2 pounds)

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 1/4 cups shredded smoked cheddar cheese

  • 2 tablespoons grated onion

  • 1/4 cup roasted red pepper, drained and diced

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Set out a 9×13-inch baking dish. Gently pop off the stems of the mushrooms. Discard the stems or save for later use. Then use a damp paper towel to brush off the dirt on the mushroom tops. Do rinse them in water.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, smoked cheddar cheese, diced red pepper, onion, and garlic together. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. Mix well.
  • Use a spoon to pack the cavity of each mushroom with cheese filling. It’s ok if it pops over the top a little.
  • Press each cheese-stuffed top in grated Parmesan cheese to create a crust. Then set them in the baking dish, cheese-side-up. (It’s okay if they are tightly fitted in the baking dish, because they will shrink while baking.)
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the tops are puffed and golden. Serve warm.

Notes

  • This is a great party appetizer to prep a day or two ahead, then bake right before your event.
