You should know, I’ve been making this stuffed mushroom recipe for 20 years… Long before it was trendy to create low carb recipes

They’ve been a big hit at Collier parties for two decades, and in multiple states.

So there’s no need to look at this recipe, and wonder if the words “low carb” equal “less desirable.” 

Nope. No they don’t.

5-Ingredient Low Carb Stuffed Mushrooms Ingredients

The secret to the bold tangy-sweet flavor of these mushrooms is in the simple well-selected ingredients.

  • Mushrooms – You can use standard buttom mushrooms, cremini mushrooms, or any variety with a deep cavity when you remove the stems.
  • Pork sausage – the zesty seasoning in the sausage means you don’t have to add additional ingredients in the pork stuffing.
  • Plum sauce – I know low carbers might be shocked by this, but we’re just using a little plum sauce for sweetness and flavor… And most of it runs off. *wink*
  • Sesame oil – To add that punch of ambiguous Asian appeal.
  • Scallions – For a pop of freshness and color at the end.

How To Make 5-Ingredient Low Carb Stuffed Mushrooms 

This recipe could not be any easier…

  1. Pop the stems off your mushrooms. You can discard them and save them to add to soups and salads.
  2. Stuff the cavity of each mushroom with pork sausage.
  3. Brush the tops with a mixture of plum sauce and sesame oil.
  4. Bake until bubbly. 
  5. Sprinkle scallions over the tops and these glistening stuffed mushrooms are ready to roll!

Low Carb Stuffed Mushroom Q & A

Can I omit the plum sauce to make these even more low carb?

Yes, but the plum sauce offers a huge amount of flavor. I suggest substituting low sugar hoisin sauce, or just cutting the plum sauce in half. 

Can I use a different kind of meat?

Yes. However, ground sausage varieties are best if you want to keep the ingredient list short. Try ground chicken sausage instead!

Can I use shiitake mushrooms?

Yes, but shiitakes are pretty flat and don’t provide much room for stuffing the pork filling. It’s best to go with mushroom varieties that have a deep stem cavity.

Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes! 1) You can either prep and bake them. Then rewarm the mushrooms later. 2) Or you can prep them and place them in the refrigerator, unbaked. Then bake them right before your event. I would go with option 2.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Set out a 8 or 9 inch square baking dish.

  • In a small bowl, whisk the plum sauce and sesame oil together. Brush the sauce over the top of each mushroom.
