Cheesy Mashed Potato Stuffed Mushrooms

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 12-18 Appetizer Servings 1x


Mushrooms are stuffed with easy mashed potatoes for a different appetizer idea.



  • 1 package (half of 7.6 oz box) Betty Crocker Butter and Herb Mashed Potatoes, prepared
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2436 large mushrooms
  • olive oil, for drizzling


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a bowl, combine the prepared potatoes, 1 cup of the cheese and 3 tablespoons of the chives.
  3. Remove the stems from the mushroom caps. Place them cavity side up in a baking dish.
  4. Place the potato mixture in a piping bag with a star or your desired tip. (It will need to be a tip with a large opening.) Pipe the potato mixture into the mushrooms. Drizzle lightly with olive oil.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, then top the mushrooms with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Return to the oven and cook until the cheese has melted and the mushrooms are cooked, about 10 more minutes.
  6. Allow to cool for a couple minutes, then sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon chives. Serve warm.
