Now that winter is on our heels I like to have a few good low carb appetizer recipes on hand for parties. Whether it’s a holiday party, football party or a book club meeting it’s nice to have something low carb to bring along that you know everyone will love.

What kind of mushrooms for stuffed mushrooms?
Really it doesn’t matter but I tend to like the mini portobello mushrooms they have at Aldi. You certainly could use white mushrooms or even portobello mushrooms but I like the darker color and meatier texture of the mini portobellos.
How long do you cook stuffed mushrooms?
I like to precook my mushrooms, especially if the stuffing is already cooked like the buffalo chicken in this recipe. So I take out the stem and clean out the mushroom gills. Then I flip them over so the top of the cap is facing up and cook for 15 minutes. The mushrooms release alot of liquid this way it doesn’t collect in the cup.
In the meantime I make the buffalo chicken stuffing. Once they are stuffed I cook them for 15 – 20 more minutes. So that’s 15 minutes to precook the mushrooms and then another 15-20 after they are stuffed.
Low carb Buffalo chicken stuffing
This stuffing is the same as my stuffed chiles. It a mixture of cooked chicken, cream cheese, garlic, mayo, cheddar cheese and hot sauce. I added a bit more hot sauce to this recipe because I didn’t have the added heat from the peppers. Just mix together all of these ingredients to use as the stuffing.
Notes about this low carb stuffed mushroom recipe
- When I made this I used 2 pints of mushrooms (20 mushrooms) but had half of the stuffing left. So I adjusted the recipe to make 40 mushrooms.
- However you could make just 20 mushrooms and use the extra stuffing in some peppers or eat it as a dip if you wish.
- To eat it as a dip, put it in a microwave safe dish and cook for 3-5 minutes until everything is melted.
- You could make these ahead of time and just pop them in the oven when you are ready to eat them.
- I have yet to freeze them so I’m not sure about that but I can’t see why they wouldn’t work.
These make for great low carb finger foods for parties but my husband and I ate them for lunch one Saturday.
