What you need for Pimento Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms:

  • Baby Bella Mushrooms: You can pick up a package of these to use for this recipe! I generally like to look at them and make sure they aren’t too large or small!
  • Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese: Make sure to grab sharp cheddar as it adds all the difference!
  • Plain Greek Yogurt: You can use any greek yogurt but I love to use Fage 0% for this recipe.
  • Pimentos: These are vernally found in a jar and I like to dice them up for this.
  • Sliced Jalapeno peppers: This adds a ton of flavor and a little kick! I’ve found the pickled version works best for these.
  • Garlic powder: This seasoning is a must in here!
  • Onion Powder: Also a must that is a pantry staple in my cabinet.
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Dash of Paprika: just a pinch!

Can I use any plain greek yogurt?

Yes! Any plain greek yogurt will work here. I like to use the Fage 0% or the Trader Joe’s plain brand!

Can I prep these ahead of time?

If you want to save some time when making this recipe, you can prep the pimento cheese mixture and store in the fridge. Then when you go to stuff the mushrooms, it only takes 10-15 minutes! I don’t recommend prepping the baked mushrooms ahead of time as they will get “soggy” and they are best consumed after making them.
