How To Make Spinach Dip Stuffed Mushrooms:
- To make these tasty treats, start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- While the oven is heating up, gently remove the stems from the mushrooms and place them stem-side down on a sheet pan that has been sprayed with olive oil. Spray the mushrooms with olive oil as well and season with salt and pepper.
- Finely chop the mushroom stems and place them in a large mixing bowl.
- To the mixing bowl, add the thawed and drained spinach, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, scallions, garlic, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together with a fork until well combined.
- Flip the mushrooms over so that they are stem-side up and stuff each mushroom with the filling, pressing it into the cavity and making a small mound on top. Be careful not to overstuff the mushrooms or the filling will spill over during cooking.
- In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and the remaining parmesan cheese. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of each stuffed mushroom and then spray the tops lightly with olive oil.
- Place the mushrooms in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through to ensure even browning.
- Once the mushrooms are done cooking, allow them to cool slightly before transferring them to a serving platter to serve warm.
Can I freeze spinach dip stuffed mushrooms?
Yes, you can freeze stuffed mushrooms. To do so, follow these steps:
- First, make sure the mushrooms are completely cool after being cooked.
- Place the stuffed mushrooms in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze for about an hour. This will help them to maintain their shape and prevent them from sticking together when they are frozen.
- Once the mushrooms are frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe container or bag. Store in the freezer for up to three months.
- When you are ready to serve the mushrooms, let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then bake in the oven at 350°F until they are heated through. This should take about 15-20 minutes.
Note that freezing stuffed mushrooms may cause the texture of the dip to change slightly.
