Stuffed Mushrooms

by | May 18, 2023 | Recipes

My go-to recipe is a savoury beef ground beef (mince) stuffed into mushrooms and topped with cheese. It’s great for portion control and less mess on your plate.


  • Portobello Mushrooms
  • Beef Mince
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Seasoning of your choice e.g. some barbeque spice, beef stock, paprika, herbs, chilli flakes (check for allergens)
  • Chopped onion and/or green pepper
  • Garlic
  • Cheese
  • Optional: any leftover veggies you can quickly chop up like baby marrow, carrot or tomatoes. I have not mentioned any quantities as it’s entirely up to you. Anything goes really!


  • Remove the stem of all the mushrooms.
  • Don’t waste that, chop it up to go along with your mince.
  • Braise your onion.
  • When translucent add your mince and seasoning.
  • Add your garlic and any vege extras at this point.
  • Be careful not to add too much water, as your mixture may be too runny.
  • Prep and lightly season your washed mushrooms.
  • Add a touch of oil with a brush to coat it on the outside.
  • Spoon in your mince and top with cheese.
  • Pop into your preheated oven or air fryer until the cheese has melted and your mushrooms are soft.
  • Serve with any side of your choice.

I know my family enjoys these.
Some kids who are not mushroom/vege lovers or are fussy have come to love my tried and tested recipe, I hope yours will too.
