Goat Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Mushrooms

Goat Cheese and Sun-dried Tomato Mushrooms are the tastiest bite-size appetizer to serve up at summer cookouts, holiday events, parties and more. Or if you are like us, eat them for dinner! Grab your mushrooms and let’s get to stuffing and baking these bite-sized beauties. 

You don’t need to have a party to serve appetizers. In fact, I often make a variety of apps for supper. Finger food is fun and changes up the routine a little bit. In the May 2013 issue of Canadian Living, there’s a feature called “There’s An App for That”.

They had a few variations of stuffed mushrooms with one of them being Goat Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Mushrooms.  I thought they looked interesting and weren’t like anything I’d served before. I usually make my stuffed mushrooms loaded with garlic and escargot.

    I first start by cooking the mushrooms alone to help tenderize them. I cook the plain mushrooms for about 8 minutes. Then once cooled stuff and then bake for an additional 12 minutes or so. So overall you have about 20 minutes of cook time on these stuffed mushrooms. 

    Do You Wash Mushrooms Before Stuffing Them 

    You do need to clean your mushrooms to remove any dirt or grime left on the mushrooms. You have to wash and dry really well or you run the risk of your mushrooms turning slimy. Just make sure to pat them dry wit ha paper towel or even place them in a salad spinner.  

    How to Make Goat Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Mushrooms

    First, you want to prep your mushrooms. Remove the stems of each mushroom and sit the caps hollow side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Then brush lightly with oil and cook for around 8 minutes. Allow the mushrooms to cool, drain off any liquid, and lay down on a clean foil-lined baking sheet. 

    Now you want to make your filling for the mushrooms. Take softened cream cheese, goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice, parsley and pepper, and mix until creamy. Spoon into each mushroom and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. 

    How to Store Stuffed Mushroom Caps 

    If you don’t eat all your mushroom caps right away, place any leftovers in the fridge. This will help preserve them and keep them good. You will want to eat all of them within 2 days, or they will begin to get rather mushy and go bad. 

    Can Stuffed Mushrooms Be Reheated

    Yes! You can easily reheat any of the leftover mushrooms you have. Just place on a baking sheet and heat up in the oven, toaster oven, or place on a plate and do the microwave. Just heat until they are warmed through, then serve. The mushrooms will offer a slight variation in texture after they are refrigerated. 

    Can You Freeze Stuffed Mushrooms

    Yes! Stuffed mushrooms do freeze rather well. You can prep your mushrooms and then freeze a portion of them. You can place in an airtight container and store in the fridge for around 2 months time. 

    Then when you pull them from the freezer simply place on a baking sheet with aluminum foil and bake. You will need to add around 10 minutes extra to allow them to fully cook.

    1. I am not the biggest fan of mushrooms (I’m trying to convince myself that I like them) however, this recipe may just cause me to become obsessed. Goat cheese and sundried tomatoes are two of my favorite ingredients. Can’t go wrong with them. They would make shoe leather taste great. 😉

    2. Oh yummy. These look so good.  i do the same thing on Sunday alot.  We call it Smorgasboard.  Although it really isn’t. 
      I like your idea.  Great for a Friday night.  Finger Food Friday!  I do want to try.  I buy them already stuffed at the 
      grocery.  I am sure your recipe is soooo much better!  
      sh It  is perfect for Spring.  I’d love for you to come over and 
      link at the Fabulous Spring/East Party.   This weeks linky is over here:
