Minced Beef Stuffed Mushrooms.

Stuffed shrooms are no stranger here on my site… We are not talking about little appetizers, but full-on meal centrepieces, we love them!

These beef stuffed mushrooms are the first meaty shrooms I have here.

I usually make them vegetarian, not for any reason other than the fact that mushrooms are already quite meaty.

So the addition of minced beef and bacon make these super meaty!

The stuffing is really very simple are the main ingredients of many a great meat sauce for pasta.

The meatiness is joined by garlic, a little tomato, balsamic and parsley.  Oh yeah cheese, we have both mozzarella and Parmesan.

Is this ringing a bell yet?

What Are The Best Mushrooms to Use?

The best mushrooms for stuffing are either portobello mushrooms or field mushrooms.

They are practically the same thing to be honest. Portobello mushrooms are a mature version of the cultivated button mushrooms we all know.

Field mushrooms, also known as meadow mushrooms are the often wild cousin of the portobello mushroom.

Field mushrooms are often a little irregular in shape and do not have the same bowl shape. As a result, sometimes they are a little more awkward to stuff.

Both bake/roast or BBQ wonderfully, so whether you are cooking these beefy mushrooms or any of my vegetarian variants they are perfect.

This minced beef stuffed mushrooms recipe is a supremely simple midweek family meal that is perfect for young and old alike.

I think my husband that isn't a mushroom crazy person like me might be converted by this one. Yum! Pinning it.

It is suitably meaty, so maybe he will be converted :)

We love mushrooms so I am not sure why I don't stuff them more often! You have given me the push I need! I'm heading out to buy some portobellas!
