You must include these cheese-stuffed mushrooms to your to-make list! I made them just last week and am already planning to recreate them.
I cooked these for a very important evening at home together with my partner. We put together a selection of charcuterie and appetizers, and we sat down to watch the latest movie.
The moment I popped one of these cheese-stuffed mushrooms into my mouth, I was in bliss. It was so delicious that I would have eaten the entire portion and had dinner. But my husband was a fan and I had to give him a bit. It’s a shame.
STUFFED MUSHROOM INSPIRATION
My cheese cabinet is always stocked with at the very least some blocks of Cabot cheddar and I wanted to do something different for our night out. So I pulled out one of the bricks from Seriously Sharp and got to work.
There’s nothing like Cabot cheddar. They really are the finest cheddar I’ve tried. Perfectly aged to reveal the cheddary flavor I knew it would provide the best flavor to keto-stuffed mushrooms.
I’m very proud of my long-lasting relationship to Cabot Creamery Coop. It’s not just a regular firm, they’re an agricultural cooperative owned by more than 800 families of farmers in New England and New York.
A lot of my recipes include delicious cheddar, like these Keto Drop biscuits, and My Keto Cheese Crackers. I know that adding certain Cabot cheese will provide the most delicious flavor. Did do you realize that the majority their cheddars are lactose-free?
TIPS FOR KETO CHEESE STUFFED MUSHROOMS
- Pick mushrooms that are of decent size. The ones that are small can be difficult to fill with a lot of the stuffing that is cheesy and delicious.
- To take the stems off that are attached to the mushroom, gently pull and twist and it should pop and in one piece.
- Don’t throw out those stems of mushrooms! They add body, and also the delicious umami taste. Cut them into small pieces, and sauté with butter and garlic.
- If you aren’t able to find fresh sage, substitute 1/2 teaspoon of dried ground sage instead. Dried spices are far greater in potency than fresh, so you’ll need less.
- Make sure to in the filling cavities using a small spoon to ensure that you get as much cheddar flavor in as you can. It is possible to scatter it up a bit too.
- Cook your mushroom in ceramic or glass dish. Metal can conduct heat more effectively however it is possible that the bottoms on your mushrooms caps could brown too fast.
- Once the cheese-filled filling has melty and lightly golden on top, they’ll be cooked. Don’t overcook them because the mushrooms become soft and can be difficult to scoop up.
The best thing of this keto-friendly keto filling recipe for mushrooms is that it can be scaled either way down or up, depending on how many you’d like to make. Make a half-portion for small groups of family members or double the recipe to host a big gathering.
