Simple midweek meals are a must, even if you are at home all day! These simple minced beef stuffed mushrooms are cheesy, simple and delicious.
Minced Beef Stuffed Mushrooms.
Stuffed mushrooms are no stranger here on my site… We are not talking about little appetizers, but full on meal centrepieces, we love them!
These minced 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?

And a quick appetizer stuffed mushroom to round things out!
What Are The Best Mushrooms to Stuff?
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.
Stuffed Mushrooms for 2 Or For a Crowd…
The great thing about stuffing shrooms is that they are great whether you are feeding a couple or feeding a crowd.
They are a perfect scalable meal, you can also stuff them separately for picky eaters.
I would ordinarily serve two mushrooms per person for a light dinner and one for lunch.
