Mushrooms Stuffed With Creamy Spinach-Artichoke Filling


  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 medium clove garlic, minced (1 tbs.)
    40 small brown mushrooms, stemmed, gills removed
    Kosher salt
    Freshly ground black pepper
    2 ounces cream cheese, softened
    4 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise
    1 teaspoon fresh thyme
    5 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
    5 ounces frozen artichokes, thawed, lightly squeezed dry, and chopped
    3 tablespoons fresh breadcrumbs or panko
    3 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano


  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Remove the stem from the mushroom, and using a small paring knife or a miniature melon baller, gently scrape out the gills in the mushroom.
  3. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the oil and about two-thirds of the minced garlic or use garlic-flavored olive oil. Brush the insides of the mushroom caps with the garlic oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange the mushrooms oiled side up on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until just tender, about 6 minutes. If they purge a lot of water, flip the mushroom upside down on paper towel to drain some of the water.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and 1/2 tsp. of the thyme with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in the spinach and artichokes and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. In another medium bowl, combine the remaining garlic, 1 tbs. oil, and 1 tsp. thyme with the breadcrumbs and cheese.
  7. Spoon the artichoke mixture evenly into the mushroom caps and sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture. Bake until the crumbs are golden-brown and the filling is hot, about 6-8 minutes. Serve immediately.

Makes about 40 stuffed mushrooms.
