Can you Freeze Stuffed Mushrooms?
Ideally, they should be frozen the day that they are stuffed for the best freshness. Freezing them before baking them lends for the best results, but you can freeze stuffed mushrooms already baked and cooled too. You can take the frozen little nuggets and place them on a baking tray still frozen. That way, they will thaw and bake at the same time. So easy!
- Prepare the stuffed mushrooms according to your favorite recipe. It is best not to bake them.
- Next, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Place the sheet in the freezer about 1 hour or until the mushrooms are frozen. This keeps them from sticking together in the freezer.
- Once frozen, remove the mushrooms from the baking sheet and place in a single layer in a freezer-safe bag.
- While it is best to have just one layer, if you are careful, you can place a piece of parchment paper on top of the first layer of stuffed mushrooms and add a second layer of mushrooms.
- Remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal.
- When freezing food, always label the container with what is inside and the date.
- Since these stuffed mushrooms are delicate, be careful not to place anything heavy on top of them in the freezer.
How to Reheat Stuffed Mushrooms?
They will not be quite as nice and firm as the day you first made them, but they can be reheated in the oven or an air fryer with great results.
