Juicy little morsels – Herb Stuffed Mushrooms

I first discovered this lovely flavor combo – Herb Stuffed Mushrooms – years back when I was still a grad student, attending a neighbor’s thanksgiving dinner party.

As a poor grad student, I didn’t want to show up empty-handed so these super delicious and very budget friendly stuffed mushrooms became my go-to.

These little mini morsels have become a crowd pleaser. Everyone loves them, from office parties to family gatherings. They are the perfect finger food/appetizer. Read on to see prep-ahead tips for a lovely stress-free holiday season.

Easy crowd-pleaser appetizer/finger food

After several attempts, here are the best tips that I highly recommend you follow. They will save you so much time and ensure that your Herb Stuffed Mushrooms as pretty looking as mine ❤️

Tips:
1. Use a sharp knife to gently and finely chop mint leaves and Italian parsley leaves.

2. Please do not use food processor as the texture of these delicate herbs will become too fine and too watery. They will become mushy looking after baked in the oven.

3. Make-ahead: gently clean the mushrooms with a dry paper towel and use your hands with a small teaspoon to remove the mushrooms stems. This can be prepped a day ahead so it’ll save you some time before the guests arrive.

4. The larger the mushroom caps the more stuffing you can pack into each morsel. My best advice is to pick medium size caps – not too tiny (hard to stuff) and not too large – so that they will be baked evenly in the oven.
