STUFFED MUSHROOM CASSEROLE
Stuffed Mushrooms are always the first appetizer at a party to disappear! This Stuffed Mushroom Casserole has all the rich, savory flavors of stuffed mushrooms, including the contrast of a creamy cheesy inside with a golden breadcrumb crust. And there’s no need to prepare individual bites for each serving!
For this easy casserole, buttery, garlicky mushrooms are topped with a 3 cheese panko crust. The fun part of this casserole is that you can try using various kinds of mushrooms, since you’ll be quartering them to sauté before assembling the dish. You won’t need to worry about them being a size or shape that lends itself to stuffing. Try using chopped portobellos, shitaki, or oyster mushrooms to introduce more delicate or exotic flavors.
Like many holiday sides, Stuffed Mushroom Casserole can be made ahead and reheated to crisp up the topping prior to serving. Make it within 24 hours of when you plan to serve, let it cool completely, then cover the baking dish and refrigerate. Reheat in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes until heated through.
Stuffed Mushroom Casserole is the perfect easy side to accompany those special holiday roasts, like No-Baste Roast Turkey or Honeybaked Ham (Copycat). Serve them alongside Candied Sweet Potatoes and Perfectly Easy Dinner Rolls for a holiday meal to remember!
MAIN DISHES TO SERVE WITH STUFFED MUSHROOM CASSEROLE
VARIATIONS ON STUFFED MUSHROOM CASSEROLE
- Cheese: Replace half or all of the mozzarella with a stronger flavored cheese such as gorgonzola, gouda, or white cheddar. Or use goat cheese in place of the cream cheese for a tangier taste.
- Seasonings: Add 1 teaspoon of dried or 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs such as sage, thyme, parsley, or basil. Or add 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to lend a touch of heat.
- Veggies: Add some extra green veggies by wilting in 2 cups of fresh spinach or kale to the mushroom mixture right before adding the garlic. Or try 1 cup of chopped steamed broccoli.
- Mushrooms: Since you are chopping the mushrooms, you can use various kinds such as shitaki, chopped portobellos, or chanterelles to add a richer mushroom flavor, or white button mushrooms for a milder flavor. Try mixing 2-3 different types; many grocers sell packs that include a variety.
