H3 Recipe: Basil Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed Mushrooms


20 each          Crimini mushrooms, cleaned, stems removed


2 cups            Basil leaves, fresh

2 Tbsp            Pinenuts

4 Tbsp            Parmesan cheese, fresh

1 Tbsp            Olive Oil

1 Tbsp            Fresh garlic, minced

2 tsp.               Lemon juice

½  tsp.           Kosher salt


1 ½ c.              Panko bread crumbs, Japanese bread crumbs

¼ c.                 Butter, melted

3 T.                  Parsley, fresh, chopped 


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Clean mushrooms with any dirt or debris and align the mushroom caps upside down in a baking pan.
  • In food processor, place all filling ingredients and process until evenly mixed.
  • In separate bowl, mix panko bread crumbs, butter, and fresh parsley.
  • Fill each mushroom generously with filling and then sprinkle panko mixture on top of the filling.  (Each mushroom should have about 1 teaspoon of panko topping on it).  Pat down so that the crust mixture sticks.
  • Then place in oven for about 15 minutes.  If making these a day ahead, simply just cover and refrigerate until needed.  The size of the mushroom may alter cooking time; be sure to check on the mushrooms after ten minutes to gauge the remaining time if any.
