Stuffing stuffed mushrooms are a great way to use up some left over stuffing and make the perfect appetizer for a holiday gathering. Stuffing is one of my favorite dishes of a holiday feast. But no matter how much I eat, there still always seems to be leftovers. 

This is how these stuffed mushrooms came to about. The day after Thanksgiving I try to find new ways to use what we have left in the fridge. I spooned the stuffing into some mushrooms we had and topped with a little cheese, because cheese makes everything better. A little drizzle of EVOO and voila!

Tips for making stuffing:

  • Butter. Cook celery and onion in butter to soften before adding to stuffing.
  • For these mushrooms, keep it simple. Just use your tried and true stuffing recipe. No need for lots of extras. A little ground sausage would be good in this though. 🙂
  • For a little extra flavor add a teaspoon of poultry seasoning to the stuffing.
  • Don’t add so much liquid it becomes soggy. For this recipe I used Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix and followed their recommended amount of liquid.
