Gather ingredients

Gather all the necessary ingredients: mushrooms, cream cheese, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Start by cleaning the mushrooms by gently wiping them with a damp paper towel. Then cut the mushrooms into slices or pieces, depending on your preference.

Heat a pan over medium heat and add a little oil. Fry the mushrooms in the pan until golden brown. Then add the finely chopped garlic and fry briefly until fragrant. Add the cream cheese and stir until completely melted. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the mushroom cream sauce with a pinch of finely chopped parsley sprinkled on top. Enjoy your meal!


Preparing mushrooms

Rinse the mushrooms under cold running water and gently pat them dry with paper towels. Carefully twist off the stems by gently wiggling them back and forth until they loosen. Be careful not to damage the cap of the mushroom.

Stuff the mushrooms with your favorite filling and enjoy a delicious dish.

Fill the mushrooms with, for example, herb cheese, minced meat or a mix of vegetables and breadcrumbs. Place them on a baking tray and bake in the oven until done. Serve warm and enjoy!


Make filling

Mix the cream cheese with finely chopped garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Stir everything together well until you get a smooth mixture. Make sure the cream cheese is mixed well with the herbs for a delicious taste.

Stuff the mushrooms with this mixture. Take a spoon and carefully spoon the cream cheese mixture into the mushroom caps. Fill them generously, but be careful not to overfill them. Make sure the filling is evenly distributed over all the mushrooms before frying them.


Baking the stuffed mushrooms

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Lightly grease the baking tray with olive oil to prevent the mushrooms from sticking.
  • Arrange the stuffed mushrooms evenly on the baking sheet with enough space between each piece.

  • Check regularly that the mushrooms have the desired color and remove them from the oven when they are ready.
  • Allow the fried stuffed mushrooms to cool briefly before serving. Enjoy your delicious creation!
