Easy air fryer stuffed mushrooms filled with cream cheese, sour cream, garlic, and topped with cheddar and chives. They’re great as an appetizer or a side dish!
Originally, I had planned to cook stuffed mushrooms in the oven as I’ve always done in the past.
However, I decided to give the air fryer a try because I had been wondering, “Can you air fry stuffed mushrooms?”
I already had beef roasting in the oven so this was the perfect opportunity to use the air fryer.
The best part about air frying is it requires no preheating!
Ingredients for Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms
- Whole White Button Mushrooms
- Cream Cheese
- Sour Cream
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Garlic Powder
How to Clean Mushrooms
If you are planning to cook them right away, rinsing them under lukewarm water is great for cleaning them. However, if you do not plan on cooking them right away they will become slimy after being rinsed with water.
If you are not cooking them right away, use a damp cloth to remove dirt and debris.
Can you use Pam nonstick spray in an air fryer?
Unfortunately, air fryer baskets do not tolerate aerosol spray. It causes the basket to peel.
How do you get the food to stop sticking? Use a non-aerosol spray bottle of olive oil or canola oil, or you can rub coconut oil directly on the basket.
Cook them until you notice the mushrooms have softened and the cheese is fully melted.
Storing Leftover Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms
If you happen to have leftovers, store them in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
Be careful, they go quick!
