What a delightful vegetarian appetizer!! Stuffed mushrooms are so easy to make & so impressive to serve. I came up with this recipe based on ingredients I had on hand, so  feel free to adjust the ingredients for stuffing based on what you have! 


Time: 30 minutes  


  • 10-12 large stuffable mushrooms (can also use smaller ones for variety)  
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese  
  • 8-10 green olives  
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs  
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh sage  
  • 1-2 teaspoons smoked paprika  
  • 1-2 tablespoons diced jalapeño


  1. Carefully rinse the mushrooms or wipe them with a damp paper towel.  
  2. Pull out the stems & dice them, set them aside in a bowl.
  3. Dice the olives & add them to the bowl with the mushroom stems.  
  4. Add to the bowl the cheese, fresh sage, bread crumbs, & jalapeño.  
  5. Carefully place enough of the mixture into the mushrooms so that it doesn't spill over but are well-stuffed. 
  6. Place the mushrooms on a cookie sheet with cooking spray or parchment paper. 
  7. Sprinkle the smoked paprika on top & bake on 350 for ~20 minutes depending on the size of your mushrooms.  

Tip: when the mushrooms start to form a little moisture underneath, they're ready!
