Low Carb Ingredients!

Mushrooms – Use small button mushrooms for bite-sized pieces, larger mushrooms to serve as a first course or side, or portobellos for a main dish!

Filling – Cream cheese is the perfect base for the seasonings or spices. Garlic and herb seasoning or an Italian blend add even more flavor to the filling. Boursin, Alouette, or Rondele cheese spreads are pre-seasoned and will save time, if needed.

Variations – Add some crab, sausage, ground beef, or bacon bits to the cream cheese filling to bump up the protein grams.

  1. 4 stars
    Just made these, While easy and delicious, I did find them a bit moist despite having removed the gills/lungs from the mushrooms. I think next time that I will add a few panko crumbs to try to absorb some liquid. I know…I know…not keto but I think it will be good and still lower carb. My husband gobbled up nearly all of them and just informed me that he is stuffed ‘like that mushroom.” lol
