Creamy Herb and Prosciutto Stuffed Mushrooms

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Serves: 4 | Total Time: 50 Minutes

I just love these prosciutto stuffed mushrooms. They are so savory and creamy and to be honest, every time I make them, I just have them for my whole meal!

These stuffed mushrooms make a great appetizer, too. If you are hosting a party and want to lesson the workload in the kitchen the day of the event, remove the stems from the mushrooms a day in advance. You can also whip up the filling and keep it covered in the fridge overnight. Then the next day, all you need to do is stuff ’em and bake ’em!

I use button mushrooms because they are relatively easy to get, but feel free to use shiitake or portobello, whatever you prefer. If you do use a larger mushroom, add a few minutes of bake time to the recipe and keep checking them every couple of minutes. When the tops begin to brown, they are done!

Serve these at your next dinner party, and your keto-dieting friends will love you forever.
