Herb and Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Just look at these things.

Here’s what we’re going to do: take ALLTHEHERBS, moosh them together with goat cheese, and shove them it in our faces via mushroom canoo. Doesn’t that sound like a care package from heaven?

How do you feel about herbs (said like HERbs)?

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, y’all!

Just like the song says.

Plus lavender. All those HERbs, plus lavender.

I made these herb and goat cheese stuffed mushrooms for Friendsgiving a few weeks ago as an appetizer. I simply used the parsleysagerosemaryandthyme I already had on hand. So easy, rich, earthy, and meaty. Just.like.whoa. I have to admit, I was a weeeee bit concerned I had added too many herbs…like, I was walking around Friendsgiving speaking disclaimers and saying things like, “the mushrooms may be a bit herb-y…are they too herb-y? There’s about 76 times the amount of herbs in these than other recipes. What do you think – less herbs next time?” But the friends approved the herbage, so I decided to make them again and share them with you.

These are so stinking herb-ed, and goat cheese-ed, it’s sheer lunacy.

Because you need 8 ounces of goat cheese for the recipe, I recommend getting one of the big logs instead of buying multiple smaller packages. I get the unflavored kind since we’re adding so many herbs, but if you’d like, you can do a flavor infusion. If you don’t have access to lavender buds, you can use Cypress Grove’s Purple Haze – it is rubbed in lavender buds, and is my favorite of all favorite goat cheeses. Really get jazzy on these shroom caps – you deserve it!

Stuffed mushrooms are a great appetizer any time of the year, but I love them for holiday gatherings because they aren’t super labor or time intensive and they’re filling, so you’d be fine if you just made one per person. Or you can make them by the truckload and serve them for dinner…that works, too!

#ProTip: when the stuffed mushrooms come out of the oven, drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle them with coarse sea salt – this really takes the appetizer to the next level!

A crowd-pleasing appetizer, these goat cheese stuffed mushrooms are quite the crowd pleaser!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces goat chevre

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until juices are seeping out of the mushrooms, and the goat cheese is crisp and golden brown on top.

Hi Noella, you can make the goat cheese stuffing ahead of time, and you can also stuff the mushrooms and put them in your refrigerator until you're ready to bake them. I recommend serving the mushrooms fresh out of the oven, so I wouldn't recommend roasting them and then refrigerating them if that makes any sense ;) Let me know if you have any other questions! :D

No such thing as too many herbs - this looks like a dream. Wish I was at your Friendsgiving!

All I can say is WOW!!! Those look so good and I can't wait to make them for the holidays. They would be the BEST appetizer - who doesn't love a nice helping of herbed goat cheese before dinner?!
