Why is it that a mushroom stuffed with cheesy goodness can bring me such extreme happiness? I kept the filling on these guys pretty simple – simply cream cheese, garlic, parmesan cheese and a few seasonings. That’s it. While they are simple in terms of ingredients and preparation, the result is super flavorful and something you might expect from a restaurant.

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Total Time: 30 min


  • 20 fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese (I use my microplane grater for this)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Remove the stems from the mushrooms and set aside, you’ll need these in a minute.
  3. Use a damp cloth to wash the mushrooms.
  4. Cut any hard part off the mushroom stems and discard. Chop up the remaining mushroom stems so that they are really fine.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large non-stick skillet. Sauté the chopped mushroom stems and garlic for 5-10 minutes. Turn the heat to low. Stir in cream cheese, parmesan cheese, black pepper and oregano. Stir well.
  6. Spoon about 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of mixture into each mushroom cap.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the mushrooms are nicely browned.
  8. Serve immediately.
