Stuffed Black Mushrooms

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Karen Elizabeth

This is a very popular dish here in South Africa. My cousin-in-law makes these often, especially for breakfast (without the wine!), and varies the fillings. It's a good side dish for summer barbeques! If you are not going to use the wine, substitute 1/2 cup of vegetable stock. The mushrooms can be stuffed and refrigerated a day in advance, which is a bonus if you are pressed for time

This is an excellent dish! I used 10 big champignons as here portabella mushrooms are not available and worked very well. The filling was delicious and my children said several times that they love it. I think I made only a mistake: I should have prepared the double quantity! :) Thanks a lot for this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove the stalks from the mushrooms and chop.
  2. Sautee the onion, garlic and chopped mushroom stalks in olive oil until the onion is soft, then remove from the heat.
  3. Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley, herbs and cheese together.
  4. Add the wine and melted butter to the saucepan, then add the dry ingredients.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Lay the mushrooms on a greased baking sheet and mould a large spoonful of the mixture into each one.
  7. Bake at 180C/350F for 20 mins, until the stuffing starts to turn golden.
  8. Serve on a crouton of fried bread (ideal for not wasting the delicious juices), or on a bed of mixed leaves (rocket works well), or both.
