You don’t need to be on the Keto diet to love a good stuffed mushroom. Perfect as an appetizer or a side dish and always a crowd pleaser. This entire batch (8 ounces of stuffed mushrooms) is only 26 net carbs! That’s if you eat them all yourself and these are too good not to share. However, if you do decide to eat these all yourself, no judgement here, at only 1.5 net carbs per mushroom who could blame you? Not to mention how surprisingly filling these little guys are.
1 8oz package of white button mushrooms, washed and dried
1/3-1/2 cup softened cream cheese
1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup diced Genoa salami
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchments paper. Wash, dry and cut the stems off of your mushrooms. This should leave you a nice little hole for your filling. Place your mushrooms on your prepared baking sheet. Next prepare your filling, whip together cream cheese, Greek yogurt, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and oregano until very smooth. Next fold in your diced salami and begin to fill each mushroom generously. On a small plate dump out panko with a healthy sprinkle of salt and pepper. One by one, dunk your mushrooms, filling side down, into the bread crumb mixture. Place mushrooms back onto the baking sheet. Give a quick drizzle of olive oil over the top of the mushrooms and bake for 15-20 minutes. The time will vary on how done you like your mushrooms to be. 17 minutes is usually perfect for me. While still hot, top each mushroom with a pinch of Parmesan cheese. Serve warm and enjoy!
My husband was really surprised by how filling these mushrooms are. Anyone on Keto knows how rare it is to feel really full so I knew this recipe was a keeper. The bread crumbs on the top add a really nice texture to the soft mushrooms and creamy filling. Most stuffed mushroom recipes call for cooked sausage in the filling however by using salami you save yourself time and dishes. My tip for these is to get good quality salami from your deli. As an added bonus, having it in your fridge already will make for quick Keto snacking options all week.
