How long to Cook Stuffed Mushrooms

Once you have filled all of the mushroom caps with the cream cheese jalapeno stuffing, place them cap side down on a baking sheet. Bake the mushrooms in a 375º F oven for 10-15 minutes. 

The mushrooms will lose some of their liquid on the pan, which is totally normal. Cook the mushrooms until they are tender and the stuffing is heated through. The cheese should be melted and get a little crunchy and golden brown on top.

Can I make Stuffed Mushrooms Ahead?

These cream cheese stuffed mushrooms are so great because you can make these stuffed mushrooms a few days ahead and store in the fridge until you are ready to make. Just store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days stuffed and when you are ready to use them, bake for about 5 minutes longer until they are heated through. 

You can also freeze the stuffed mushrooms uncooked, or even bake them first and then freeze. When you are ready to eat, thaw the mushrooms and bake or heat through in the oven.
