Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Making keto-stuffed mushrooms with cream cheese is pretty easy.

Of course, you don’t need specific mushrooms like portabellas, but I used specific stuffing mushrooms to get as much inside area as possible for the cream cheese.

While this is a vegan stuffed mushroom, you can also stuff them with precooked crab meat, sausage, bacon- pretty much anything you love to bite into.

You can make tons of kinds with this base cream cheese recipe and put a variety of mushroom caps on your appetizer tray.

And don’t be afraid- this is a totally simple side dish recipe that you can do.

Keto Stuffed Mushrooms

Carbs in mushrooms are pretty slim. In fact, there are only about three carbs in a cup of whole mushrooms.

Adding the goodies like cheese and butter alters that, so check our carb manager calculation to see below the estimated carb count for these.

  • whole mushrooms

  1. Theses were so good! I’ve been looking for side dishes to go with my keto dinners. The stuffed mushrooms make an excellent side dish! The whole family love them!
    i’m not sure what type of mushrooms you used. But, I will say after making a double batch, I ended up having too much cheese filling for 24 button mushrooms.

    1. Amy, thanks for going out of your way to leave a comment on my stuffed mushrooms recipe! I used regular stuffing mushrooms but there may be a different name at other stores. I will keep an extra eye out next time I am doing them to see if the recipe can be scaled for different sizes! ~Trisha

  2. I just made these – they are incredibly good.

    Thank you taking the time to put this recipe out there for all to share. Awesome!!

    1. Thank you for taking the time to make them and come back and tell me. Thats so awesome!

  3. Jamie Stevenson says:

    These are super easy to make and very yummy! Do you have the nutritional information anywhere? I couldn’t find it..maybe I’m overlooking it

    1. Its near the top of the post under Dietary information 🙂 Theres a picture

  4. These were amazing! Highly recommend!

  5. Do the mushrooms need to be pre baked? Aren’t they watery?

    1. I should’ve said I’m currently making them right now haha!! As per your recipe ☺️

    2. They do not need to be prebaked, I havent gotten any feedback from readers that theirs was watery.

  6. So easy and a big hit with both the low carbers and vegetarians in my family.

    1. Glad you loved it!

  7. I love these mushrooms but I cannot find them in carb manager. I see the dietary info you posted but what is the serving size??

    1. The recipe makes 12, which we say is for 6 people, so we consider a serving size 2 mushrooms 🙂

  8. I love baked stuffed mushrooms. I’m trying these but I’m going to add some crushed Pork Rinds and instead of the salt, a little Tamari (which is gluten-free soy sauce).

    1. that sounds totally delicious!!

  9. Make these today. Super good!

  10. Bella Hardy says:

    Absolutely love your creative idea with stuffed-mushrooms with cream cheese! As you know I made it a short while ago and it was lovely! Thx, Trisha for sharing!

    1. I am so glad you enjoyed it!

  11. AutumnMack says:

    Have you ever tired making these up but storing them in your fridge and making them later? I want to incorporate these into my weekly meal planning.

    1. hi Autumn! I havent done that before. My only feedback would be that mushrooms tend to get slimy in the fridge after too long, but I think you could probably prep these 2-3 days in advance before cooking and they should be fine if sealed properly.

  12. Thanks for sharing! How far ahead of time can I make them?

    1. You could prep them the night before since its just cream cheese, cover with foil and then cook next day.

  13. Gail Jewson. says:

    I made these for our Valentine appetizer before dinner. The only difference I made was omitting the cayenne and splashed some Worcestershire in the mix. I sure won’t wait another year to make them! Thanks for sharing😋

    1. Your way sounds wonderful too! I am so glad you enjoyed these stuffed mushrooms- personally I find them easy enough to make year round too. 🙂

      ~Trisha

    1. Serrano peppers not exports ,typo in auto correct sorry

    2. I love the addition of serrano peppers! I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe and Ill have to try it your way too!

  15. Crystal Hornby says:

    I’ve made these so many times. I put diced shrimp, lemon and dill in the cream cheese mic. Yummo

    1. All of that sounds amazing!! I think mushrooms are delish with seafood – so decadent! Thanks for your feedback!

  16. So yummy! Love them!

  17. Really good! Not watery at all. My mushrooms were just medium size and I was able to get 18 stuffed mushrooms out of the recipe.
