Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers, and when I take the time to whip up a batch, I’ll often make extra to freeze, and then bake and enjoy them later. If you’re asking “Can you freeze stuffed mushrooms,” here are some quick tips to help ensure a delicious result.
It only makes sense to make some extras the next time you make stuffed mushrooms. That way you can freeze some for those times you have unexpected guests or need to come up with a quick appetizer–or even just get a craving for these savory little treats.

Can You Freeze Stuffed Mushrooms? Yes, Here’s How!
- First, make space in your freezer for a small baking sheet. The pan will need space to lay flat while the mushrooms are freezing.
- Next, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Prepare your stuffed mushroom recipe as you normally would, but do not cook them.
- Place your prepared mushrooms on the baking sheet you’ve lined with parchment paper. Make sure the mushrooms are not touching.
- Lay the baking pan with your mushrooms flat and level in the freezer for two to three hours or until the mushrooms are frozen solid.
- Now, you can place the frozen mushrooms into a Ziploc freezer bag before placing them back into the freezer. Remove as much as possible before sealing.
- Store for up to three months–if you can resist them that long!
- When you’re ready to bake them, remove as many stuffed mushrooms as you’d like, and bake according to the recipe instructions, adding approximately one and a half times the original cooking time. Watch them carefully, and use a food thermometer to ensure they reach an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees.
