Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

A few months ago we had a delicious stuffed mushroom appetizer at a restaurant.  The rest of the food we had wasn’t that great, but the memory of these stayed with me.  Around Christmas I was looking for a new, easy appetizer and remembered these mushrooms and tried to recreate them.  It was a perfect match.  They are really easy and only require a handful of ingredients.

  • One pound (or more) of button mushrooms, wiped clean and de-stemmed.
  • 1-2 cups Panko bread crumbs (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • 1 egg- plus 2T water -lightly beaten
  • 1 container of Alouette cheese – I use Garlic and herb (you’ll have leftover cheese)

  1. Preheat oven to 375.  Line a sheet pan or 9X13 pan with tin foil (for easy clean up) or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Place mushrooms on the sheet pan.


  • Season panko with salt, pepper, and any herbs or flavorings you want to add.
  • Lightly beat the egg(s) with the water to make an egg wash.
  • Using a small spoon, fill each mushroom cap with the Alouette cheese.
  • Roll each filled mushroom in the egg wash.

  • Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes until mushrooms are cooked thoroughly.
  • Serve immediately.
