  • 18 Medium Mushrooms
  • 6 Tbsp Butter, divided
  • 4 cloves Garlic, pressed or grated
  • 3 Tbsp Panko Bread Crumbs, or use seasoned for added flavor
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese, grated, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 pinches Kosher Salt
  • pinch Pepper


  • 2 Dashes of Hot Sauce


  1. Heat oven to 400° degrees.

  2. Clean mushrooms and remove the stems. Set stems aside.

  3. Chop the stems finely, or use a mini food processor to chop them.
  4. In a microwave safe bowl add 4 Tbsp of the butter, and the garlic. Microwave for about 20 seconds, or until butter is soft. If the butter melts completely, that’s okay, just try not to let it get too hot.
  5. Add the bread crumbs to the butter mixture, and stir.
  6. Add the chopped mushroom stems, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, and hot sauce, if using. Stir well to combine. Mixture should be thick.
  7. In a cast iron frying pan, or oven save dish, add the remaining 2 Tbsp of butter and place the pan in the oven for a couple of minutes to melt the butter.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven and very carefully arrange the mushrooms in a single layer in the pan (Be careful as pan will be hot!).
  9. Using a small spoon, fill the cavaties of the mushrooms with the filling. Try to use all of the filling. Mound it up!
  10. Bake mushrooms for 25 minutes. Halfway through cooking time, baste them with the butter from the bottom of the pan, using a spoon (be careful! I know, I'm a worrier).

  11. Remove from oven and enjoy hot, or room temperature.
