If I had to choose one of my favorite snacks it would have to be ham and cheese parcels. When it comes to party food, these garlic stuffed mushrooms would definitely be on my party list alongside with potato skins, mango chicken puffs and spicy chicken wings!

Take these garlic stuffed mushrooms: I didn’t think much when I decided to make them for the first time. All I had was a vision: garlic flavor. I mixed some simple ingredients together and stuffed the mushrooms with the mixture. Guys, I couldn’t be happier with the result.
To make these garlic stuffed mushrooms you don’t need any fancy ingredients. Just get some fresh garlic, cheese, parsley and butter. Oh and seasoning of course.
Stuffed Garlic Mushrooms Ingredients
- Button Mushrooms
- Grated Cheddar Cheese
- Unsalted Butter,
- Garlic Cloves
- Fresh Parsley
- Salt & Pepper
Now all you need to do is mince the garlic & finely chop the parsley. I let the butter sit at room temperature so it’s easy to work with. Then it’s time to mix everything together to get a paste-like stuffing. Be careful with seasoning: what I do is I taste the cheese first to see how salty it is and then add salt if I feel it is needed. As for the black pepper – add it to your taste. Once you have your stuffing ready, move onto button mushrooms.
If you have your own way to clean mushrooms, then go ahead and do so. In general, you should not wash them just use a food brush or a cloth to remove the dirt. However, I use a completely different way of cleaning my mushrooms. I simply remove stems first and then peel off the outer layer. It is very easy, you can do it by hand or with a help of a knife.
Sprinkle each mushroom with salt (and more pepper if preferred) and fill with the garlic stuffing. Place them onto a baking tray lined with a sheet of baking parchment. Baking these garlic stuffed mushrooms takes about 15 minutes.
I think they taste best while still warm so if you are planning a party and want to make garlic stuffed mushrooms I highly recommend prepping them in advance. Just pop them in the oven right before your party starts. However, this is just my preference – I like them warm. Just so you know they still taste delicious when cold.
