Mushroom Stuffed Brie


Hi Friends! I’m back in California for my best friend, Crystal’s, wedding this Saturday. I’m so excited for her and am so glad the big day is finally here!

Ok, so there is nothing attractive about this stuffed brie. Like seriously, it’s pretty hard to make a chunk of ooey gooey cheese stuffed with crap look attractive. But, let me tell you, this ooey gooey cheese stuffed with crap was AWESOME! I could not stop eating it. I don’t even want to know how much cheese I ate, it’s just too embarrassing. This is another recipe I made with my girlfriends last weekend. Although the night was low in carbs, it was obviously not low in fat, LOL! Mushrooms tossed in some white wine and garlic and then stuffed into brie cheese. Does it get any better than this?!! You could taste some of the white wine with almost every bite, which made it even more prefect!

We bought a larger round of brie this time around! I do recommend that if you plan to make this and have a piece of brie that is more than 7 ounces, you might want to consider almost doubling the mushroom recipe. We used a 13-inch round piece and I felt it could have used way more of the mushroom stuffing!

Mushroom Stuffed Brie

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

– 1 7-8 ounce round piece of brie cheese

– 1 cup mushrooms, sliced and cleaned

– 2 garlic cloves

– 1 tbs. finely chopped onion

– 1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil

– 1/4 cup white wine

– salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the piece of brie in half using a sharp knife and place on foil or in a 8X8 baking dish.

2. In a saute pan, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and cook for about 2 minutes until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and the wine. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the wine is mostly absorbed. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Scoop the mixture on one half of the cheese round. Place the other half on top. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted to your desired consistency.

  1. Perfect recipe for me to try but I am not sure on the brie cheese. Maybe I can try with other types of cheese because I just bought one block of cheddar cheese today. Thats a simple and easy to try recipe and with mushrooms, all the more I am drooling.

    Have a great time at the wedding.

  2. Looks like an awesome appetizer!! Who can resist melted gooey cheese with mushrooms!! Great job!. :) Have a great time at your friend’s wedding!! :)

  3. I think this sounds AMAZING. And as something of a low carb “expert”, it doesn’t matter if it’s low in fat. Fat is good for you, even saturated fat. We’ve all been seriously misled by the “nutrition” experts, honestly. So eat this and enjoy!!!

    • Thanks so much, Carolyn! I do consider you a low carb expert! And no worries, I definitely had my fair share of this yummy cheese!!

  4. Oh lord, this looks amazing! I love brie, and I love mushrooms, so this seems like the perfect marriage :) Great appetizer!

    • Thank you, Kiri! The mushroom filling is really good and I’ve only ever done sweet fillings so this was a nice change!

  5. I adore baked brie and this mushroom stuffed version looks positively swoonworthy!

  6. I love this, I adore brie and I love mushrooms! DELISH

  7. Cheese and mushrooms do get my attention, especially when it is brie-yum! I could see you and I in a cracker fight over this one-especially the last little smidgen.
    Enjoy the wedding as well as the weekend!

    • Ha! We were definitely fighting over the crackers and cheese. Since I didn’t put enough filling, I was searching for more of the mushroom filling!

  8. I don’t know, I think this is totally attractive, and a way to make brie more interesting. Have fun at the wedding!

  9. Oh this looks so good! Brie is my heaven and diet weakness. MMmmm

  10. The stuffed brie looks pretty attractive to me — yum! I hope you enjoy yourself, and congratulations to your friend!

  11. I would be perfectly happy to chow down on this chunk of gooey cheese stuffed with crap. :-D

  12. Enjoy your time in California! The brie looks AMAZING! It is one of my favorite cheeses and lends itself well to mushrooms!

  13. My husband is a mushroom fanatic, so he would love this. I’m going to remember this for entertaining

  14. I am a huge fan of baked brie, but have never tried a savory filling! It sounds incredible! Hope you’re having a fun weekend away~

    • You know, Liz, this was the first time that I have tried a savory filling! I actually think I liked it better than many of the fruity ones I have tried. I think the possibilities are endless! :)

  15. Wow! What a creative way to present brie and crackers! I love your photos too! Missed checking out your site, things have been pretty crazy around here. Have a fabulous weekend! =]

    • Thanks, Kym! I totally understand. I have been sick and traveling. I am so behind on reading other blogs!

  16. This is seriously swoon worthy! Adding mushrooms to cheese only makes it even better! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend in California!!

  17. Cheese always looks good to me. This looks wonderful in my eyes.

  18. What a great combination! Mushrooms and cheese…irresistible.

  19. I’m not a huge mushroom fan.
    BUT if you surround it in some creamy delicious Brie, then I am totally game!

  20. If I liked cheese I would be all over this. Anything with mushrooms has my name on it (when it doesn’t involve cheese!) Sounds like a great wedding, and a fun trip!

  21. Minus the mushrooms, of which I don’t love, this sounds awesome! Welcome home Stephanie!

  22. I NEED this right now!!

    Wow! It looks amazing!!
