Stuffed Mushroom Recipes Spanish Style

Stuffed Mushroom Recipes.  Stuffed mushrooms are very popular here in Spain and you will often find them with various fillings in tapas bars, they are easy to make, incredible tasty and perfect to be served as a tapas, starter, part of a buffet or at a BBQ.  Below you will find some of our favourite recipes.

The recipes below all use button mushrooms, because of their mild flavour which brings out the taste of the stuffing, buy the biggest you can, but you can use any type of large mushroom. 

Tips - When working with mushrooms be gentle as they are very fragile and can easily break.

Serve with a simple dipping sauce using 1⁄2 cup sour cream, the juice of one lime, and salt and pepper to taste, or some homemade Allioli (garlic mayo)
