We filled these keto stuffed mushrooms with a savory filling made of Italian sausage, cream cheese, and Parmesan. Its simple, creamy, and flavorful.
I’m not sure what it is about stuffing one thing inside another, but it makes magic. Like my spinach stuffed chicken – a total reader favorite! I know these are going to be the next big hit, because they’re just as good!
White Mushrooms – These are one of the most popular varieties of mushroom, mostly because of their mild flavor. They go well with lots of dishes and they are even better when stuffed with lots of good stuff! They also work well for making stuffed mushrooms due to their size and shape. You’ll cut off the stems but those will get finely chopped and added back in. White button mushrooms or cremini work for this recipe.
Filling – The flavors of ground Italian sausage pair well with the savory umami flavor of the mushrooms! It’ll get cooked and then mixed with the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning to make a creamy, cheesy, flavorful filling.
This is one of those naturally low carb recipes that doesn’t require any special ingredients or weird swaps. It’s just stuffed mushroom goodness!
These make a great appetizer for a party and are delicious served hot or at room temperature.
This recipe is easy to halve or double, depending on your needs.
How To Make Stuffed Mushrooms:
Mushrooms – To start you’ll want to prepare the mushrooms by first rinsing them and then removing the stems. Removing the stem should leave an opening in the mushroom that can be filled with the stuffing ingredients. Chop up the stems and set those and the mushrooms aside for now.
Sausage – Next you’ll cook the Italian sausage. Add it to a skillet over medium heat and let it cook through, crumbling the sausage up as it cooks.
Filling – After preparing the sausage add it to a mixing bowl along with the chopped mushroom stems, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and the softened cream cheese. Stir all that up in the bowl until it is well combined and you’ve got a cheesy, savory filling that is perfect for these keto stuffed mushrooms!
Stuff – Once you’ve finished the filling you can start preparing the mushrooms to be stuffed and baked. Coat the outsides of the mushrooms with some olive oil and then start spooning the filling into each of the mushroom caps until they are stuffed full of the good stuff.
Bake – When you’ve finished stuffing the mushrooms start arranging them on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until they have cooked through. We like to top our keto stuffed mushrooms off with some parsley or maybe some more Parmesan cheese before serving!
You can use a food processor if you want to make things a little easier while also making sure that you get a good mix of all the filling ingredients! Just add in the mushroom stems, cheeses, cooked Italian sausage, and Italian seasoning then process. This will make a much smoother, creamier filling. If you prefer more texture, mix by hand.

These keto stuffed mushroom should last for up to 4 to 5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Yes! You can either prepare them and freeze them before baking, or freeze them after baking. First place them on a baking sheet and freeze for an hour or so before transferring them to a freezer bag. This will keep them from sticking together.
Sure! These keto stuffed mushrooms are perfect for stuffing with all sorts of savory ingredients. Just make sure they are low carb and you should be all set. Finely chopped or processed nuts are a good choice, try it with some mozzarella cheese, or add some garlic!
