    I used this as a base recipe. I used all ingredients plus more. My hubby doesn't like mushrooms. So I only used part of the stems and the rest was cooked chicken. I added some onion and garlic powder, fresh dill and parsley and cheddar cheese. They were very tasty and easy to change up for the occassion or by what you have on hand!

    TB you can use larger button mushrooms, baby bella or full size portabell.

    I didn’t have cream cheese so I grated up some pecorino romano. I also didn’t have any chives, so I minced up a little red onion and cooked it up with the minced mushroom stems— DELICIOUS! ?

    I love this recipe; I’ve made it a few times and have eaten them for lunch and breakfast.

    Absolutely delicious. Didn't change a thing about the recipe. Reminds me of Green Goddess at Melting Pot. :)

    This was a hit for my family! I made some adaptations: only used 5 ounces cream cheese, and added about a half cup of shredded cheddar cheese, also added in about a half cup of fresh chopped parsley - stuffed inside Portabella mushrooms. It was delicious!

    This recipe was really good!

    Made it with goat cheese instead of cream cheese and added chopped up dates and some Parmesan! Amazing!

  21. Ed
    Can you reheat them? Or do they get dry?

    I'm a 66yr old lady, a diabetic for 36yrs, been on insulin for 28yrs. My weight has been flactuating between 80 & 86 throughout. I wish to shed 10kg. Will the Keto Diet be appropriate for me as well?

    Yes! You will want to work with your medical provider on adjusting medication dosages as your blood sugar comes down. It can happen surprisingly quickly.

    These were my favorite thing on the table for Thanksgiving!! They would make a great appetizer, as well as side dish. If you were sharing, I think it would also make a great cheese ball, bc it is firm enough to roll or log roll. They will be made frequently by me, bc I LOVE quick and easy recipes!!

    Can’t say I was a fan, the mushrooms, they completely dried out in the 20 minutes in the oven.

    Jacqueline,
    I believe living the keto lifestyle is a commitment; a promise to become the healthiest and best version of myself by choosing to eat whole, real foods instead of processed, sugary toxins.
    It takes dedication, time, and energy. I wasn't prepared for how much effort goes into eating healthy. Learning to cook can be daunting and overwhelming. It takes planning. Give yourself grace when you fall. It'll happen but remember it's a new day tomorrow.

    These are delicious but I must of ate to many because they made my blood sugar to high and I haven't had it that high in awhile. I had like 6 on top of a bowl of spinach.
  31. Diane
    I made these I thought they were really delicious . I will be adding them to the favorite list .
  32. Mandy
    Very very tasty! My family especially my kids love them!

    Made this tonight just as recommended. It was fantastic!

    I am making these for a gathering tomorrow but subbing goat cheese for cream cheese, sauteing minced shallot and fresh thyme ( a kissing complement for mushrooms) and Italian parsley to stuff them with. Love Keto eating. Down 7 pounds in one month. A blessing of an eating life style.

    Paneer can be a good option, just keep an eye on the carb count.

    My family loves these. I've made them quite a few times and they are a favorite! I switch up the ingredients in the 'stuffing' sometimes to make a different taste. They always come out perfectly. The only thing I changed is that I put them on a broiler pan in the over because the mushrooms emit so much water that the dish got a bit soggy. The broiler pan works perfectly and all the 'water' drips below and the mushrooms remain dry. THANK YOU for this amazing recipe!

    You had me at goat cheese. LOL The combo of thyme and mushrooms is amazing. Thank you for the idea.
