Stuffed Mushrooms With Stilton Cheese – Unusual, But Extremely Delicious

I love stuffed mushrooms and I love Stilton (blue) cheese. I know that it can be not everyone’s favourite, but I like its salty taste. And I think it is very good when used in preparing different dishes.

Try this simple recipe that would help you prepare a quick and easy dinner for your loved ones, a recipe that is a little bit unusual (because of the cheese we are going to use), but I guarantee you that it tastes divine.

I’ve cooked it this weekend for my family and the mushrooms quickly disappeared. Try them for yourselves and enjoy:

  • 4 big mushrooms

  • 200gr Stilton cheese

  • 50gr unsalted butter, grated while still cold

  • seasoning – black pepper, parsley

You can add as well some bacon or ham strips, crème cheese, spring onion, etc.

Preparation:
  1. Remove the stems and clean/wash the mushrooms. Move aside

  2. Prepare the stuffing by mixing well the crumbled Stilton cheese, butter, olives, Cheddar cheese and seasoning

  3. Make small balls from the stuffing and fill each mushroom, flattening it on top

  4. Heat the oven to 200°C and bake about 30 minutes or until the stuffing turns gold

    I’ve never been a fan of blue cheese, but I’ve never tried Stilton cheese before. If I can find that around here, I just might have to try this recipe out! It does sound delicious. The picture of the food at the top of your page looks so tempting! My mouth is watering as I speak!

      Thank you Erika. If you don’t like blue cheese (and Stilton is blue cheese), please add some other of your favourite cheeses. I usually use creme cheese and cheddar with seasoning and spring onions.

      Have a lovely day and enjoy food.

    Hi there,

    Now, that is a different dish, definitely served up a brilliant fusion of tastes with the mushrooms and the strong stilton cheese. Going to give this one a try, I usually use a different, softer smoother tasting cheese with mushrooms. Might actually try it by adding in a touch of onion diced into tiny pieces to bring a crisp sharpish flavour to the stuffing mix….Mushrooms, Love em..

      Hi Derek, I also usually use Cheddar cheese or creme cheese when stuffing mushrooms, but I love Stilton cheese as well and that is why I decided to give this recipe a try. The dish was very yummy!

      I like your idea to put onion in the stuffing, will try it next time.

      All the bes

    OMG those look so good! And so easy to make!
    I’m guessing for those who don’t like blue cheese can substitute it for another cheese and it’ll still be just as delicious. I personally don’t like olives so I’ll probably leave those out when I try to cook these and might go with bacon strips like you suggested. Bacon goes well with almost anything!

    Just wondering what kind of mushrooms you use. Portabello’s?

      Hi. Yes, I usually use large flat mushrooms or Portobello mushrooms when stuffing.

      About the stuffing – I like cheese, any cheese :-), but I think the best to use when stuffing mushrooms is the Cheddar cheese or creme cheese (use plain or seasoned). They are creamy and mild in taste mmmm

      I also like bacon, I agree that bacon can make a dish even more yummy.

      Have a great day. Cheers
