Easy Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

There’s nothing like adding fresh mushrooms to your table! Try these Easy Stuffed Mushrooms for a classic, traditional Italian start to any meal. Healthy mushroom dishes are an excellent way to get vitamins and nutrients into a meal without feeling as if you are eating nothing but “rabbit food.” These stuffed mushrooms have a hearty, meaty taste, but they’re completely vegetarian, so they’re low in calories and packed with nutrition! It’s a great way to get the family to eat more vegetables (even if it’s not Meatless Monday).

You’ll love the way the flavors come together in this tasty dish. The super savory sun-dried tomatoes add a burst of flavor and a hint of tang, while the spinach and cheese come together to create a perfect combination of textures. Add in the whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs to give the dish a crunchy finish and you’ve got yourself a winner! They’re perfect as an appetizer, but you could also serve them as the main dish with a side of rice, quinoa, or whole-wheat pasta.

Mushrooms as a Meat Replacement

If you’re trying to make more vegetarian dishes, you should start using mushrooms as a meat substitute. Ever tried a mushroom burger or made a pasta sauce heartier by using mushrooms instead of beef? Going plant-based is always a great way to cut down on saturated fat and calories, in addition to upping the nutrient content in any dish.

We love mushrooms for just about every meal. They have a delectable texture that reminds us of meat, so we never feel like we’re missing anything when we cook with them! It’s also great how versatile they are. They pair well with eggs in omelets, taste great on sandwiches and in veggie wraps, and are a great addition to dinner menus of all varieties.

Looking for delicious ways to work mushrooms into your weekly menu plans? Try this easy and delicious Portobello Mushroom Philly Cheesesteak recipe, or swap portobello mushrooms for meat the next time you whip up your favorite burgers. You can also try this Mushroom Lentil Loaf or Vegetarian White Bean Mushroom “Meatballs” with Chimichurri Sauce for your next party or family get-together.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 baby Bella mushrooms (clean by rubbing with damp cloth, don't rinse)
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup finely diced sun-dried tomatoes, packaged in olive oil
  • 2 cups baby spinach, torn into pieces
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs, we used whole wheat panko
  • 1 (4 ounce) container feta cheese, low fat or fat free
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Remove stems from mushrooms and dice.
  3. In a medium skillet, add oil and heat to medium-low, saute onion, mushroom stems and sun-dried tomatoes until tender, about 4 minutes. Add minced garlic and continue to saute one additional minute. Add spinach and saute just until wilted. Remove from heat and add the feta cheese and breadcrumbs and only 3 tablespoons of parmesan, stir to combine.
  4. Stuff mushrooms with mixture, place on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with remaining tablespoon parmesan, and heat until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. *Mushrooms are very hot coming out of the oven so be sure to cool a few minutes before serving. This appetizer is yummy warm or cold.
  5. Note: The mushrooms may release liquid, so when removing from the cookie sheet lightly dap with a paper towel before serving. Stuffed mushrooms are a perfect dinner party appetizer.

    why is there no nutritional information?

  2. Tricia Harris Cohen  August 26, 2012

    Total servings? Serving Size??

    • Skinny Ms.  August 27, 2012

      Tricia, About 16 servings…one mushroom is the serving.

      • Carla Geiger  August 21, 2014

        1 mushroom is 4 PP?

        • SkinnyMs  August 25, 2014

          Carla, Thanks for the question. We have updated the nutrition values to reflect a more accurate yield and serving size. 2 stuffed baby Bella mushrooms are 4 points plus, or 3 points in the old weight watchers points system.

  3. JM Hartke  September 7, 2012

    But it doesn't say serving size…how many mushrooms does the above apply to?!

  4. Gwen  September 14, 2012

    Love this recipe!! Would like to know serving size as well.

    • Skinny Ms.  September 16, 2012

      Gwen, 1 mushroom.

      • joanne  May 28, 2014

        Serving size would be easier if there was a measurement like ounces or grams. A mushroom's size can vary greatly. giving the totals for the whole recipe would be helpful too. You could then take the total nutritional facts and divide by the number of mushrooms you get when you're done.

  5. Patricia  January 8, 2013

    Do all their recipes not mention size of servings?

    • Skinny Ms.  January 9, 2013

      Patricia, Skinny Ms recipes do. We some from guest food writers that were not submitted with data.

  6. Kate Walters  January 26, 2013

    Great recipe! It worked to put stuffing over smaller sized bella mushrooms too. Very tasty!

  7. R Morris  February 28, 2013

    The recipe does not instruct when to add the feta cheese

    • Skinny Ms.  March 1, 2013

      R Morris, Yes it does…look at the recipe where it says to add the remaining ingredients. Thanks! 🙂

    • 123  March 27, 2013

      Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients …

    • Janice  November 17, 2013

  9. Dusk  October 27, 2015
