Hello, Pimento Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms!

Yep, it’s now a thing…

And really and truly this recipe should be labeled as kitchen scraps because that’s exactly how this recipe came to exist. I had the tiniest bit of Pimento Cheese left from making these Pimento Cheese Meatballs and then again there were a handful of leftover mushrooms after making this Cauliflower Crust Quiche.

It would just be plain sinful to waste pimento cheese AND mushrooms. Gasp! So I got scrappy, kitchen scrappy (ick, who is this cheesy person I’ve become 🙄?). Well, turns out the two go together perfectly. mushrooms and pimento cheese make sweet harmony when combined.

So, is this an appetizer or a side dish? I don’t know! I’m thinking all of the above because I straight up ate these right after I finished shooting them, not gonna lie. So there’s your snack category too.

It’s nice to have some easy appetizers though to throw together when you have company coming over and stuffed mushrooms, no matter how you stuff them, are pretty easy. I often feel like I neglect the apps when it comes to entertaining and opt for the easy meat and cheese plate, but after making these mushrooms and eating the bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed, jalapeños (that may or may not become a future post) I had at dinner last night I think that’s going to change.

You could just set out some pimento cheese spread and crackers then call it a day, but why not just mix a few more ingredients in and stuff it into some mushrooms? Guest Mind = BLOWN! #WorthIt

  1. Pimento cheese stuffed anything is delicious, but I haven’t thought to do mushrooms before! Great idea

      I feel like I moved to NYC and forgot all about pimento cheese and now that I’m back in the south a whole new world has opened up again and I’m obsessed with putting it on everything!!

    Oh my gosh! Love these Aimee. When I lived in Canada we used to eat crab stuffed mushrooms, I can totally dig this pimento cheese version! Gorgeous!

    • aemars says:

      Oh wow, stuffed crab mushrooms (hold on while I write that down for a future post…ha!). I have a small, okay big, obsession with putting pimento cheese on everything right now, which inevitably is causing me to have to hit up the gym more.
