Ingredients for Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms

There are just a few simple ingredients you’ll need to create these delicious bites:

  • Breadcrumbs: For some crunch, use plain breadcrumbs to mix with the other ingredients and sprinkle on top.
  • Parmesan cheese: Shredded parmesan adds an extra layer of cheesy goodness.
  • Garlic powder: Just a pinch will give these stuffed mushrooms some zing.

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms

For the best results, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind while making your stuffed mushrooms:

  • Don’t overfill: While it’s tempting to go heavy-handed with the filling, a little restraint will keep things tidy.
  • Extra crispy: For an even crispier top, mix a bit of melted butter with the breadcrumbs before sprinkling.
  • Customize: Feel free to tweak the filling with your favourite herbs, spices, or even a bit of chopped bacon or spinach for an extra flavor kick.

You’re all set! Get ready for an explosion of flavor with these sensational air fryer stuffed mushrooms. Perfect for an appetizer, snack, or even a sneaky midnight treat.

Variations and Substitutions

Not a fan of cream cheese? Swap it out for goat cheese or ricotta for a different, yet equally delicious flavor and texture.

Breadcrumbs all gone? No stress! Substitute with crushed crackers or panko for that satisfying crunch.

Want a meaty twist? Add cooked bacon bits or finely chopped sausage to the filling mix.

Herb it up! Don’t be shy—throw in some fresh herbs like parsley, thyme, or even a sprinkle of chives to elevate the flavor profile.

Feeling cheesy? Add some shredded mozzarella or gouda for an extra melty goodness.
