Cajun Spiced Stuffed Mushrooms

Cajun Spiced Stuffed Mushrooms

Hi! Welcome to This Wife Cooks!

Today, I’m sharing a super easy appetizer bursting with flavor! Stuffed mushrooms is definitely one of my go-to appetizers because I love that the filling can usually be made a day or two in advance.

With these guys, you can control the heat to make them as mild or spicy as you like; it’s all in the heat of your peppers and seasoning.

If you’re wondering, can I make these vegan? Of course you can! But…. I personally don’t recommend it. My experience has been that vegan cream cheeses can be tricky when it comes to baking. As great as they are cold, I just haven’t found one that doesn’t get way too soft when baked.

That said, I’m guessing you could try a two-step approach by baking the mushrooms on their own and then stuffing with the cream cheese mixture. I haven’t actually tried this but it seems like it would be fine, right?

Want to stretch the filling a bit beyond six mushrooms? Stir in a tablespoon or two breadcrumbs and/or add a small handful of sharp cheddar. Enjoy!
