In my husband's family, we have a tradition of making a variety of appetizers as our meal for Christmas Eve. My sister-in-law brought these one year and they have been one of our favorites ever since. I don't generally use the large stuffing mushrooms, though you can if you're serving this as a first or second course in a formal dinner. Instead I use regular button mushrooms so 15 or so people can have two or three each.

  • Remove and finely chop stems from mushrooms.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat; brush mushroom caps with melted butter and place onto a baking sheet. Raise heat to medium; cook and stir chopped mushroom stems, green onion, and garlic in the butter remaining in the skillet for 3 minutes. Lightly stir bread crumbs, Cheddar cheese, pecans, salt, and black pepper into the mixture. Generously fill the mushroom caps with stuffing, piling it high.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until stuffing is hot, the cheese has melted, and mushrooms are cooked through, 20 to 30 minutes.

Love these! They were super easy and the 2 times I've made them they've disappeared quickly. I used baby portobellas the first time a dn white mushrooms the second - both were fantastic. The second time I forgot to get green onions at the store so I used chives and they tasted just as good.:) Read More

This is a good basic recipe but we like a little more zip. I added finely chopped celery rosemary & thyme and more black pepper; I'd like to try adding crumbled turkey bacon too. Read More

made as recipe states though I had to substitute colby-jack for the cheddar as I had none. It was fabulous. Best served hot so cook them last if possible. DEEE lish! Read More

my husband is diabetic so I had to x the breadcrumbs. Also my grocery store -- I live in the boonies of NW NJ-- was out of scallions so subbed in leeks instead. Rather than breadcrumbs did smashed low carb pretzels. Worked great! Only thing is I had much more filling than mushrooms. No biggie used it in a stuffed bread which got amazing raves. Awesome unique recipe. If you like hot stuff add some fresh jalapegnos! Read More

These were very tasty. I will definitely make again. The only change I will make will be to decrease the amount of butter and replace with broth. I also don t think basting the mushrooms with the butter added too much. Read More

Delicious doesn t require too many indredients and is easy to prepare. I only used half the amount of stuffing and froze the rest to use at a later time. I m not sure it will hold up but thought it was worth the test. Read More

This was pretty good but it came out a little dry for my taste. The only part of the filling I could really taste was the bread crumbs. Read More

These are a hit. It makes a lot of stuffing so buy 2-3 packages of mushrooms. Read More
