Easy Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms

Was needing a quick and easy appetizer the other day, and (as often seems to be the case) was craving pesto.  So decided to just make a batch of easy pesto stuffed mushrooms!  It is hardly a recipe to post — just mushrooms, your favorite pesto, and you can top them with a variety of little garnishes.  But they were so cute and delicious that I thought they were worth sharing.

I’m counting down the days until I can start growing basil plants again.  Summer is almost here!!!

If you are a fan of pesto, and flavorful mushrooms and all things Italian, you will love this Easy Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms recipe!



  • 1 lb. baby bella or button mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite pesto, either homemade or storebought
  • (optional) Panko breadcrumbs
  • optional garnishes: shaved Parmesan and/or toasted pine nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, or preheat a smoker.
  2. Carefully remove and discard the stems of the mushrooms, then clean to remove any dirt with a damp cloth. Fill mushroom cavity with pesto (approx. 1/2 teaspoon). Top with a pinch of Panko if desired. Bake or smoke for about 15 minutes, until the mushrooms are cooked and the filling is warm.
  3. Garnish with Parmesan and/or toasted pine nuts.


These would also be delicious with some crumbled cooked Italian sausage or crabmeat mixed in with the pesto.
