Published: 12/20/2011


  • 16 ounces white button mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons basil oil, the seasoned olive oil of your choice, or plain olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • ¾ cup (1 1/2 ounces) Panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon Vermont cheese powder, optional, for flavor


1) Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2) Clean the mushrooms with a slightly damp paper towel and remove and discard the stems.

3) Mix the oil, salt, and pepper, and toss the mushrooms with the blend. Place the mushrooms bottom-side up on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

4) In a small food processor combine the remaining ingredients and pulse until the garlic is finely chopped.

5) Stuff each mushroom with the filling, packing it down to get as much as possible into each mushroom.

6) Bake the mushrooms for 20 to 25 minutes, until the bread crumb filling is golden. Remove them from the oven, and serve hot or warm.

Yield: 20 to 25 stuffed mushrooms.

  • Awesome and delicious recipe! I didn't realize until I started making this, that this was the same recipe my mom made minus the panko breadcrumbs, which it tastes much better with the panko! Easy to make and they were eaten up in minutes! Will make again!!

  • I have found more recipes than I can count on your website, all of them delish but not a single one has amazed me like this simple but fantastic recipe. I was slightly hesitant to make stuffed mushrooms so I only cooked 4 for two people. I had to modify the amount of ingredients. Also because I was nervous, I sauteed the mushrooms in basil oil to make sure they were cooked fully before putting them in the oven and lessening the cook time. I served them with your sweet onion dip and crumbled Feta cheese. The only mistake I made was just cooking 4 because it was not nearly enough. This is my new favorite dish. I cannot thank you enough.

  • These are so easy to make and they are wonderful. made them twice and each time they just disappear. I do use fresh basil instead of the dried and a Parmesan- reggiano cheese to help hold the mix together and add some more on top for more flavor.These are a keeper
