Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms are a great starter course or side dish for a special dinner. These white button mushroom caps stuffed with a mixture of pecans, green onions, and stuffing mix are exceptional with a grilled steak.

What can I say about these Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms, except…they’re totally delicious! This is a recipe that I’ve been making since way back in the mists of time.

Where did it come from and whose original idea was it? Darned if I know. I’d love to give someone credit for it, but when it’s been in your recipe box for nearly 30 years, it’s close to impossible to track down the source.

I specifically recall making these for BeeBop when he and I were dating. I think I served them along with a gorgeously grilled ribeye, but I just remember him raving about the mushrooms.

Most stuffed mushrooms I’ve had contain cheese in the stuffing. And spinach. These have neither. What makes this recipe a bit different is the pecans.

Of course, we love our pecans here in Georgia. They’re one of our major agricultural products, you know. I try to sneak them into recipes anywhere I can.

How to Make Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mushroom caps and stems on a wooden cutting board.

Clean the mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Remove the stems and set aside. You can use either the white button mushrooms or the little brown cremini mushrooms. Either work fine but the cremini will turn out a bit darker when cooked.

Mushroom caps in a baking pan.

Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over low heat in a small saucepan or skillet. Dip each mushroom cap in the melted butter and place top side down in a baking pan.

Mushroom stems, green onions, and pecans in a skillet with a wooden spoon.

Finely chop the mushrooms stems. Measure 1/4 cup of chopped stems and sauté with the chopped green onions and pecans in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter until onions are wilted. Add more butter if needed.

Add the wine (or water) to the sautéed onions and mushrooms. Stir in the stuffing mix. Add additional wine or water a tablespoon at a time if needed to make a mixture that holds together when lightly pressed.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared mushroom caps. If there is any butter left from dipping the mushroom caps, pour it over the tops. Bake until hot, about 10 minutes.

    1. They really are delicious, Brenda. It’s an old recipe I’ve been using for decades and it never fails to get great reviews.

  1. I bet this would be a great appetizer. Have never tried pecans in my stuffed mushrooms but it sounds wonderful. I love pecans!

    1. Pat, I use it as both an appetizer or side dish. We really enjoy the crunchy texture from the pecans.

  2. Scott used to rave about stuffed mushrooms that you made when you were stationed in Portsmouth. I’m thinking this is the recipe? I’ve printed it out and plan to surprise him this weekend!
