How to make them
Making these Creole Vegetarian Stuffed Mushroom Caps is super easy!
There are four main parts - caramelizing the onions, creating the creole cheese mixture, stuffing the mushrooms and baking.
To begin making them, you’ll want to start with the caramelized onions and garlic since they take the longest.
Simply add olive oil to a pan and turn the heat to medium. Add the onions and Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning and cook for 15-20 minutes or until slightly caramelized. Next, add garlic and cook down for 2-3 minutes.
As the onions are cooking, preheat your oven to 350F degrees.
Next, toss the cleaned and stemmed mushrooms with 2 tbsp olive oil and ½ tsp Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning and set aside.
Now grab a big bowl and mix together panko, caramelized onions and garlic, roasted red peppers, cream cheese, parmigiana, parsley and ½ tsp Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning.

Now it’s time to stuff them! Add a spoonful of the mixture into each mushroom cap. Repeat until they’re all stuffed and towering with the Creole cheese mixture.
Place the mushrooms evenly apart on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
Once they’re done, remove and serve with a big bowl of Tony Chachere’s Ranch Dressing.
How to freeze and reheat them
These Creole Stuffed Mushrooms are great for freezing!
To freeze them, follow the directions as is, but instead of placing the lined baking sheet in the oven -- just place the mushrooms on the baking sheet and put the whole thing in the freezer.
Once they’re frozen, you can add them to a freezer safe bag. They’ll stay good for up to 3 months.
When you’re ready to make them, preheat your oven to 325 and cook for 30-40 minutes or until they’re golden brown and warmed all the way through.
