Stuffed Mushrooms

Prep Time: 20-25 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Serves 4


  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 teaspoon to coat baking sheet, plus a little to drizzle on top
  • 12 medium size cremini or white button mushrooms with stems
  • 6 basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 teaspoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus 1 tablespoon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a medium-size baking sheet with 1 teaspoon of olive oil; set it aside. Using a damp paper towel, gently clean the mushrooms. Carefully cut the stems from the caps; chop the stems finely. Arrange caps, stem side up, on a cutting board. In a medium-size bowl, add the chopped stems, garlic, and parsley; mix with your hands. Add the bread crumbs, 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, 1/3 cup of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Combine all ingredients thoroughly (the mixture should stick together). Spoon the stuffing generously into the mushroom caps. Sprinkle them lightly with the remaining tablespoon of Parmesan cheese. Place the stuffed mushrooms on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle a little olive oil over each mushroom. Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve immediately.
