These simple Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms make a delicious appetizer or tasty dinner.
Every holiday, no matter how many appetizers I serve, it’s the stuffed mushrooms that disappear as soon as they come out of the oven. They are everyone’s favorite.
This year, I decided to change them up a bit and combine the flavors of spinach and artichoke with bits of sun-dried tomatoes. The filling is really amazing.
Inspired by Ina Garten, I toss the mushrooms with some olive oil and sherry before stuffing them. Go ahead and use a dry white wine if you don’t already have some sherry. Ina uses marsala, but I prefer a dryer wine.
Cremini mushrooms are wonderful for stuffing. I love the way they hold their shape. They have a firm texture, so if you do use them, you will need to bake them a bit longer. If you prefer white button mushrooms, they work really well in this recipe too.
For easy entertaining, make these ahead of time, then just bake them up just before serving.
If you’re a fan of my Vegetable Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms, you’ll certainly want to try this recipe, too!
