What is the best mushroom for stuffed mushrooms?

That's a bit like asking a parent to pick their favorite child! But if I had to choose, we'd say the cremini mushroom (AKA baby Bella) is the top contender. It has a great texture and a rich, earthy flavor that pairs perfectly with various stuffing options. Plus, its size is just right for stuffing and cooking to perfection.

Of course, you can't go wrong with the classic white button mushroom. It's like the reliable, trusty sidekick of the mushroom world. And if you're feeling adventurous, you can try portobello mushrooms for a larger, more substantial stuffed mushroom experience.

Fill each mushroom cap with the stuffing mix and place it on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until hot. Remove from oven. Garnish with sliced olives and serve as a great appetizer.


Since mushrooms contain a lot of water, these little beauties must cool a little before eating.

The very hot water in them can cause burns to the mouth, and then your guests can't enjoy the entree.
