Stuffed Mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers. They make a great low carb appetizer and are such a retro favorite. They also make a great side for a steak dinner.

Quick and Easy in an Air Fryer

Stuffed Mushrooms cook even better in an air fryer than an oven. The cooking time is much shorter and the air fryer preheats in just a few minutes. Plus, if they get cold before you are ready to serve them, you can just reheat them in the air fryer for a minute or two. There is so much to love about air frying!

Simple Ingredients

  • Italian Sausage– either mild or hot.
  • Diced Bell Pepper– cut it up small and use either green bell pepper or red bell pepper.
  • Diced Onion– use yellow, white or sweet onion. Or you can use green onion, but use half the amount.
  • Garlic– 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder can be used instead.
  • Italian Seasoning– dried basil can be substituted.
  • Cream Cheese
  • Red Pepper Flakes– optional.
  • Mushrooms
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Parsley

My Favorite Air Fryer

I have recently started using the Cosori Pro II Air Fryer. It is my fourth air fryer and my favorite. It is a good size and isn’t as noisy as some.

Air Fryer Cooking Times

Air Fryer cooking times can vary between models and the size of your mushrooms will also effect the cooking time. Use the cooking time as an estimate.

Type and Size Of Mushrooms

You can use either white mushrooms or cremini mushrooms. Medium to large mushrooms work best, but sometimes you have to use what you can get. Mine are on the smaller size but that just means they cook faster and they are more bite-sized so they are easier to eat.


Leftovers will keep for 3 to 4 days and can be reheated in the air fryer.
