Cheesy Mushroom Cups


Wow! It has been so long! My summer has been completely crazy and full of wonderful, exciting adventures. How was yours? This summer I not only stage managed for our local community theatre’s production of Into the Woods, I also created and ran a summer theater camp program for the local youth. So between these theater things and my regular work I’ve had no time to make new recipes or update my site. Follow me on Instagram to see what I’ve been up to this summer!

These are one of Alex’s favorite snack items. His mother and grandmother have been making them for years and he asked me to make them for one of his game nights earlier this summer. They were a huge hit, everyone enjoyed them and couldn’t believe they were made with mushrooms. If you’re looking for a fun new party snack these you should definitely try these out.

Cheesy Mushroom Cups


  • 1 Cup Onions (chopped)
  • 2 Cups Mushrooms (chopped)
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ Parsley (chopped)
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • ¾ Cup Mozzarella
  • ¼ Cup Parmesan
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Pepper
  • ½ Teaspoon Oregano
  • 9 Slices White Bread
  • ¼ Cup Butter (melted)

Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a mini-muffin pan.

In a large frying pan saute the onions and mushrooms in the 3 tablespoons of butter. Remove from the heat.

Add in the parsley, egg yolks, cheeses and seasonings. Mix well.

Trim the crusts from the bread and roll out flat. Cut each slice into four quarters.

Dip the bread in the melted butter.

Place the buttered bread into the mini-muffin pan.

Fill each cup up with the mushroom-cheese mixture, about ¾ of the way full.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve while warm.
