  • Choose the right mushrooms. Choose large, meaty mushrooms like portobello or cremini, which are ideal for stuffing and will hold up well during the cooking process. For more, you can check out our 'Types of Edible Mushrooms' article.
  • Clean the mushrooms. Clean the corks with a damp cloth or paper towel to remove any dirt or debris. Remove the stems and remove the gills with a spoon to make room for the stuffing. Avoid washing mushrooms under running water, as they can absorb a lot of moisture and become wet.
  • Use quality materials. For the best taste, use fresh spinach, quality cheese, and breadcrumbs.
  • You can use frozen spinach instead of fresh spinach. You can use frozen spinach; make sure to thaw it and squeeze out any excess juice before using it in the filling.
  • Prepare the filling in advance. Saute the spinach in olive oil with garlic, onions, and your favorite herbs and spices. Mix cooked spinach with your choice of cheese to create a rich and delicious filling.
  • Cook the spinach properly. Saute spinach until wilted and excess water evaporates. This will prevent the mushroom filling from being too watery.
  • Add fresh herbs and spices to the filling.
  • Do not overfill the mushrooms. Otherwise, the filling may overflow during cooking.
  • Brush the edges of the mushrooms with olive oil or melted butter.
  • Cook the mushrooms until they are tender or the filling is hot and bubbly. This usually takes about 20–25 minutes at 375 °F (190 °C). Do not overcook them, or the mushrooms may become too soft.
  • Sprinkle fresh herbs or grated cheese over the mushrooms before serving.
