Ingredients To Make Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms:
Please refer to the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post for the exact measurements.
- Mushrooms: You’ll need 4 large portobello mushrooms- stems and gills removed.
- Lean ground beef: I use 90% lean ground beef as it has plenty of flavor without a lot of grease.
- Olive oil: For sauteing the onion and beef and a little bit extra for brushing the mushrooms.
- Onion: One finely diced onion.
- Mozzarella cheese: I used pre-packaged grated mozzarella cheese for the convenience, but feel free to grate you own if you prefer. Freshly grated is always better.
- Seasonings: We keep things simple and season with a combination of salt, black pepper and all spice. And sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley over the air fry mushrooms adds the perfect finishing touch.
How to Make Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms:
- Prep the mushroom caps– Remove stems from mushrooms and use a spoon to scrape out the gills. Brush each mushroom cap with olive oil and season with salt.
- Cook Mushrooms in air fryer- Place mushroom caps in air fryer basket and cook at 400 F for 10 minutes.
3. Cook the ground beef mixture- While mushrooms are cooking, prepare the beef mixture. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil and cook diced onions until soft but not browned- about 5 minutes.
Add ground beef, salt and spices and mix very well with onions. Cook for about 7-10 minutes or until beef is cooked through. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed.
4. Fill- Spoon meat mixture into the mushrooms, top with shredded cheese.
5. Air Fry- Place back in air fryer for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
6. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
Tips and Variations:
- When you are looking for mushrooms, look for large unbroken portobellos caps, sometimes known as portabella, that are about the same size to make sure that each of the mushroom caps takes the same amount of time to cook.
- Use lean ground beef- mine was 90% lean. If you’re looking for vegan stuffed mushrooms, substitute impossible beef for ground beef.
- Cheese: You can use a different cheese to top the mushrooms, such as Cheddar or Monterey Jack.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use different mushrooms? I like to use large mushrooms like portobello and serve them as a main course. However, you can always use White Button mushrooms or Cremini, especially if you’re looking to serve these stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer.
What do I do with the mushroom stems? I find that the stems tend to be tough, so I prefer not to use them in my recipe. If your stems seemed soft, you can always chop them into small pieces and add them to the stuffing.
Refrigerate – Air fryer stuffed mushrooms can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Freezer -You can freeze leftover meat stuffing for up to 3 months. However, I don’t recommend freezing mushrooms caps, as they tend to get mushy when frozen.
Reheat – Stuffed portobello mushrooms can be reheated in the air fryer at 350 degrees for a few minutes, or until hot.
