KETO STUFFED MUSHROOMS RECIPE
Low carb stuffed mushrooms make an excellent keto appetizer or a snack to bring to a party.
Skip the recipes that include breadcrumbs, and instead stuff your mushrooms with flavorful ingredients like bacon, cream cheese, and herbs.
Keto Stuffed Mushrooms are easy to make and cook up quickly in the oven. You'll want to make these all the time once you learn how.
INGREDIENTS IN KETO STUFFED MUSHROOMS
Baby Bella Mushrooms - These darker mushrooms have so much flavor. Choose mushrooms that are medium sized, about 2 inches wide.
Bacon - Cooked and crumbled bacon adds bulk, flavor, and protein to these mushrooms.
Garlic - Minced garlic gives the filling a warm, savory flavor.
Cream Cheese - Choose a full fat cream cheese, and check labels to be sure that there are no net carbs. Some brands have some, and you'll want to avoid that.
Parmesan Cheese - Grate your cheese fresh for the best flavor.
Dried Rosemary - This herb is my favorite for making a recipe feel a bit fancier.
Black Pepper - Finish off the seasoning of the filling with fresh cracked black pepper.

KETO STUFFED MUSHROOM TIPS
- Choose mushrooms that are the right size for stuffing. Having them a bit bigger makes them easier to fill. I like my mushrooms to be about 1.5 - 2 inches across.
- To remove the stems, just pull gently while twisting. They should pop right out.
- Save those stems for later. You can freeze them to add to your next broth making session, or chop them up finely and sauté to add to another dish.
- Fill your mushrooms tall. Use a small spoon to really fill up the cavity of the mushroom and add extra filling on top.
- You can make the keto mushroom filling ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for up to two days. Pull it out and fill your mushrooms when you're ready to cook them.
KETO STUFFED MUSHROOMS VARIATIONS
This recipe is a great starting point for making all types of delicious low carb stuffed mushrooms.
Try substituting cooked pork sausage or smoked sausage for the bacon, or use two types of meats for extra flavor.
Swapping out a bit of the cream cheese for some mozzarella cheese will make for a different texture, but still very cheesy filling.

HOW TO REHEAT KETO STUFFED MUSHROOMS

You could re-heat your mushrooms in an air fryer for a few minutes at 350F as well.
