What To Serve With Stuffed Mushrooms? Answered

Last Updated on May 17, 2024 by Shari Mason

Mushrooms are an excellent reservoir of essential nutrients, including vitamin D and potassium. When they’re integrated into recipes such as stuffed mushrooms, they don’t just enhance the taste, but also significantly augment the nutritional worth of the dish. The stuffing can comprise a variety of components, such as sun-dried tomatoes, bell peppers, strips of bacon, links of sausage, and beyond.

But eating stuffed mushrooms alone is kind of boring. So here’s what to serve with stuffed mushrooms to satisfy everyone’s palate. Let’s find out below. 

Top 20 Dishes to Serve With Stuffed Mushrooms 

1. French Onion Soup

With meaty dishes, soup is always a favorite recipe. On top of the mushrooms, serve a French onion soup. This is a superb recipe that’s simple to make and delicious – and everyone in the family will enjoy stuffed mushrooms plus onion soup. 

I usually top French onion soup with grated parmesan cheese. Serving stuffed mushrooms with this soup suits lunch, dinner, or as an appetizer. 

Recipe Note: Make your dish more savory with French onion pork chops.  

2. Mixed Vegetable Salad

Mixed vegetable salad is a great side dish to a meat dish like stuffed mushrooms.

Garden salads add freshness, crunch, and lightness to your palate, and it’s a great option as there are a lot of vegetables to choose from. I usually use roasted vegetables for added flavor. 

All vegetables contain nutrients, and adding greens can boost the nutrition serving even more. You can also mix and match mixed roasted veggies according to your liking. 

Note: We also recommend serving mushrooms with spinach salad, roasted spaghetti squash, celeriac puree, and a roasted vegetable polenta bowl.

You get a sense of freshness when you bite the crunchy yet savory garlic bread. You get your hunger satisfied without the mushrooms overpowering your meal.

Your guests will also enjoy the combination of garlic bread and stuffed mushrooms. One time, I tried adding some garlic powder for better flavor, and it didn’t disappoint.

9. Roasted Potatoes

Roast potatoes are another filling meal or simple dish to prepare. You can use any potato, but they take a long time to cook all the way through if baked.

This is a problem if you want to make the dish as quickly as possible, so I usually use baby potatoes or potato salad. 

There are numerous recipes for roast potatoes, just as there are for garlic bread and French onion pork chops and soup. You can serve them with gravy, cheddar cheese, or whatever you think will taste great with your main dish.

11. Cornbread

Cornbread is a fluffy and sweet bread that goes well with a plate of stuffed mushrooms. You can order it from the bakeshop, but I bake it at home and prepare it within 30 minutes. 

Cornbread is light and crumbly, with a grainy and distinct texture. I serve it with honey and butter on the side as a treat. 

12. Baked Potato Soup

Stuffed mushrooms taste divine with soups, and with the long list of options, we recommend a bowl of baked potato soup.

Jasmine rice is quick to ace; you only need two ingredients- rice and water. It will only take twenty minutes to cook rice and viola; you have a great side dish for stuffed mushrooms. 

15. Green Beans

When I want to go heavy on nutritious meals, I serve stuffed mushrooms with green beans on the side. Green beans balance the richness and creaminess of stuffed mushrooms and are healthy. 

I like to cook my green beans in an instant pot for five minutes, then add some salt and pepper to taste. 

16. Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parm and stuffed mushrooms are an irresistible combo that is filling and flavorful. Instead of using bread crumbs, I prefer parmesan cheese to coat the chicken breast. 

Chicken parmesan and stuffed mushrooms ensure give you a guiltless and filling meal. If you have a low-carb diet, you can have chicken parmesan to complete the meal.

Mozzarella sticks are excellent finger food that you can enjoy as a snack or side dish for stuffed mushrooms.

Cheesy biscuits are tender and crispy and match well with stuffed mushrooms. Bake it with the mushrooms and be ready to be reminded of your childhood.
