These creamy stuffed mushrooms are so easy to throw together. They’re great for parties, and the variations are endless.
You all know I love mushrooms, like a LOT. I even go in the woods foraging for them. To honor the mushrooms of fall I stuffed them with my all time favorite combination of ingredients for this recipe: few rich cheeses, shallots, a little garlic and touch of thyme. It can’t get more delicious and easy than that.
There are some days where you just crave the simple and the good. Something that you know will go well together and is easy to make.
I don’t always feel up to cooking a full dinner on weeknights, so I’m constantly trying to come up with short recipes that I can plug seasonal produce into at any time of year that allow me to put a meal on the table without having to think too much.

The mushroom shells becomes an empty canvas, for you to top with any combination of flavor and color that can be scooped out of the palette of your pantry.
The mushroom’s are so addictively flavorful I always make extra because I eat half right out of the pan. You’ll need to save this recipe for your next party. They are delicious as an appetizer, side dish, or just a snack! I swear I can just eat and eat and eat these things.
