Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms

Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms

Baker’s Man and I both love my Stuffed Mushrooms recipe, but I was wondering if there was another way to prepare them.    I decided to see if it was possible to create Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms.    The result was wonderful.  It was different than the original version in spite of almost identical ingredients, but it was still delicious.  It’s good to know that if my oven is otherwise occupied, I can make stuffed mushrooms in my slow cooker.Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms

Prepare your slow cooker by spraying the bottom with non-stick spray.  The larger the slow cooker, the more mushrooms you will be able to fit inside.  Remove the stems from your mushrooms, and set them aside.  Arrange the caps in a single layer in the slow cooker.   Slow Cooker Stuffed MushroomsChop the STEMS into small pieces, and add them to a skillet with 1/2 pound of breakfast sausage over medium heat until sausage is thoroughly cooked and mushroom pieces are tender.  Stir in 4 ounces of cream cheese.  Mix well, over low heat until thoroughly incorporated.  Stuffed MushroomsRemove the mushroom caps from the slow cooker, one at a time, and carefully spoon cream cheese and sausage mixture into them.  After filling each cap, dip it in grated Parmesan cheese, then replace mushroom in slow cooker.Slow Cooker Stuffed MushroomsOnce all of the mushrooms are filled and placed in the slow cooker, place lid on cooker and turn it to high.  Slow Cooker Stuffed MushroomsAllow mushrooms to cook for 2 hours.  At this point, the mushrooms will be tender, and the Parmesan cheese melted.Slow Cooker Stuffed MushroomsThere will be some liquid in the bottom of the slow cooker, so we plated them on lettuce leaves to keep the plate looking clean.  Slow Cooker Stuffed MushroomsThese mushrooms were delicious, but I thought they weren’t as pretty as the ones made in the stove.  If you would like a darker surface on your Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms, Sue Chef has a suggestion to solve that problem.  Arrange the mushrooms on an oven safe plate, and stick them under the broiler for a minute or two to get them lightly browned on top.

  1. Great idea Patty Cake. By trying your slow cooker method I will make these for appitizers when I have friends or family for dinner. This will avoid my being at the stove while others are socializing. If I’m out of cream cheese I sometimes stuff mushroom caps with a stuffing mix such as Stove Top and top them with Parmesan like your original recipe. The last minute broiler tip works for these stuffed shrooms also. Thank you for another innovative idea.

    1. Brenda, Those are great ideas for stuffed mushrooms, too. I will have to try filling them with stuffing sometime.
