Stuffed mushrooms with ham and cheddar

Just pop them in your mouth

These are really quick and a great way to use some of that leftover Christmas ham. The mushrooms need to be stuffed a few hours ahead of time so the filling can set in the refrigerator for three hours.

Stuffed Mushrooms

  • 1 cup cooked ham diced fine
  • 2 cups spinach chopped roughly
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 24 mushrooms stems removed
  • 1 tbsp sherry

Whip cream cheese with a mixer until creamy. Mince enough mushroom stems to make half a cup. Fry mushrooms in olive oil until they begin to lose water, then add spinach and ham and cook until spinach wilts. Mix with cream cheese and add sherry. Season with salt and pepper, then spoon the filling into the mushroom caps on a baking tray. Refrigerate for three hours then bake in an oven at 350 degrees until mushrooms are cooked, about 15 minutes.

    They look amazing and, like many leftover dishes, they have nothing to be ashamed of (on the other hand your ham looked like a masterpiece).

  29. First off.. stuffing anything with ham and cheddar is amazing. So I already knew this recipe was going to be a winner when I say the title :). Yup.. another one to add to my “Must Make” list 🙂

  35. pursuitofhappieness says:

    These look divine Greg 🙂

  36. Charles says:

    “Just pop them in your mouth” – don’t mind if I do 😀

    They’re the perfect size to be polished off in literally 2 bites (per person), if there’s about 5 people around, and little morsels like these definitely never last long! 😀

  37. Just came home from the holiday with extra ham…thanks for the New Year’s Eve inspiration!

  38. OK, so maybe the biscuits and these…and maybe the hot nog…you just give me too many choices. Can I move in?

  39. How sad…no leftover ham in my house do to Liz’s dislike the porky product.

  40. These look like a great NYE appetizer!

  41. Wonderful photo! AND we love stuffed shrooms…
