Stuffing-Stuffed Mushrooms
Servings: 6 Prep 20 mins Bake 400°F 10 mins to 15 mins


  • 18 large button or cremini mushrooms, stems removed
  • 2 1/2 - 3 cups leftover stuffing
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons olive oil

Make It

Make It:

1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Using a teaspoon or a melon baller, scoop out the center of the mushrooms.

3. Put the stuffing in a large bowl along with 1/2 cup of the cheese, the egg, and the parsley. Mix well and season with freshly ground pepper. If the mixture seems dry add 1 tablespoon water. Fill each mushroom generously with the stuffing mixture.

4. Put the mushrooms on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle them with a little olive oil, then sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake until the mushrooms are tender and the stuffing is golden brown on top, about 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
