Can they be re-heated? I have no answer for you and could only guess as a “maybe” as I devoured the whole batch once I tasted one. It’s an appetizer you will go back for. If I was at a party and these tasty morsels came out, I would be guarding the tray like a lioness and her cubs.

WHAT MUSHROOMS ARE USED FOR STUFFING?

There are many types of mushrooms but if you want to make stuffed mushrooms, button mushrooms are preferable. Once the stalk has been removed there is a perfect space for any stuffing mixture.

If you wanted to turn a stuffed mushroom from an appetiser to a main dish, then use a Portabello mushroom. This is a larger mushroom and you need to also remove the stalk before stuffing them.

TIPS FOR MAKING JALAPENO POPPER STUFFED MUSHROOMS

  • Mushrooms will omit water when baked so they will need a dap with kitchen towel once they are baked.
  • These stuffed mushrooms can be made ahead. Just follow the instructions in the recipe card and keep in the fridge to bake later.
  • Make sure the cream cheese is slightly softened as it will be easier to fill the mushrooms
  • Feel free to add chopped cooked bacon to the stuffing mixture.
  • Let the stuffed mushrooms cool down before eating them to prevent you burning the roof of your mouth as you bite into hot cream cheese!
