If you’re looking for a yummy appetizer to add to your menus over the coming holiday season, I’ve got one for you! I love stuffed mushrooms for their elegant look. They are relatively easy to prepare, but they look super fancy-pants when set out for guests. You’ve probably noticed that theme in my recipes over the last year. I’m a big fan of creating dishes that are simple enough to be served anytime, but versatile enough to look like a great deal of love and energy went into them for special occasions. This recipe checks both boxes. Enjoy your holiday season everyone!

Total time
Serves: 24
  • 24 cremini mushrooms, cleaned
  • 1 tbsp solid cooking fat, melted
  • ½ lb ground pork
  • ¼ cup minced shallot
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup packed fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp white wine
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  3. Snap the stem off each mushroom, leaving a well in the cap. Set the stems aside.

  5. Roast them for 10 minutes in the hot oven. Flip each mushroom and roast for another 10 minutes.
  6. While mushrooms are roasting, place shallot, garlic, parsley, and mushroom stems in food processor. Pulse to combine mixture.
  7. In a large bowl combine pork and salt with the veggie mixture.
  8. Stuff each mushroom well with a generous spoon of pork filling.
  9. Place stuffed mushrooms back on sheet and sprinkle with wine.
  10. Roast for another 12 minutes or until filling is slightly browned on top.
  11. Serve hot.
Yes, it is okay to cook with alcohol during the elimination phase of AIP. The alcohol will cook off. If you'd rather skip the wine though, the recipe will still turn out great.
