  • 1 pound baby portobello mushrooms (brown mushrooms)
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 oz sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon herb and garlic seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped chives


  • Preheat oven to 350 F (180c)
  • Clean mushrooms and carefully remove stems (discard or save for use in another dish)
  • Stir together cream cheese, shredded cheese, sour cream and seasonings until combined
  • Spread olive oil in bottom of small rimmed baking sheet or cast iron skillet (or other shallow oven safe dish)
  • Scoop approximately a tablespoon of filling into each mushroom cap (fill just a little over the top and press firmly)
  • Place cap side down in pan and bake for 18-20 minutes until tender
  • Remove and top with fresh chives


  • Serving stuffed mushrooms: there will be some liquid from the mushrooms in the bottom of the pan so remove to a new dish before serving
  • Mushrooms too hot? The mushrooms are surprisingly hot when they first come out of the oven. Leave them to cool for 5 minutes before serving to avoid burning your guests!
  • Taking stuffed mushrooms to a party? Stuffed mushrooms are just as tasty when served at room temperature so can be cooked an hour or so before and taken to a party. Remove stuffed mushrooms from the skillet to a serving dish.
  • Cream cheese not soft? If your cream cheese is straight from the fridge, heat in the microwave for 15-25 seconds to soften.
  • How to clean dirty mushrooms? Use a paper towel to gently wipe the pieces of dirt off the mushrooms
  • In a hurry? Use portobello mushrooms for the fastest cooking time
