Stuffed Baby Bella Mushrooms with Philly Cheesesteak filling is a healthier twist on the typical cheesesteak sandwich!
Finger Foods Finger Foods Fingers foods!!! That's what it's all about at a party where you just want to mingle and not have to sit down right? Finger foods let you grab a few on a plate and walk around chatting to your hearts content, never needing a chair or a table. Appetizers like these are what parties are all about and this one is sure to please.
Taking my love for cheese and adding in some sirloin steak for an improvised Philly Cheese-steak sandwich without a roll is what this recipe is all about. Trying to keep the carbs low on my end but not sacrificing flavor or taste for the hubby and family. Even the kids who hate mushrooms tried some!
I really wanted to chop some parsley on these babies to add some color contrast but the hubby was strictly against this and would have refused to eat them saying, "Parsley is NOT on a Philly Cheesesteak and I want no part of it."
so it's just the cheese and some steak and red pepper and onions. I'm not a fan of green pepper but you can use that if you prefer.
Since the mushrooms will vary from small to large in packages, filling them will vary as well. I just mounded them as high as I could and squished them in a best I could.
I think sloppy is the way to go. We aren't looking for a pretty appetizer here, but a fantastically tasty, but messy, easy, fun finger food.

I think this is awesome...I'm going to get one some of the really big Portabella mushrooms and do this with it. We love mushrooms in this house so I think this would be a great "meal" on a huge mushroom. Thanks for sharing this, Brenda!
You can always chop up those discarded mushroom stems and cook them with the peppers and onions and use them as part of the filling.
Could you make a bigger version of these in a portobello mushroom? Possibly cooking in the morning and then baking in the eve?
SURE!! That would work well!
I made these to stuff green pepper halves... great supper. Mixture fit great into 6 halves.

Little cheesesteak poppers - how fun! And tasty.
Haha. They would have been right about the parsley. 😉 But they look awesome, as is!

Such a cool idea! These sound amazing, Brenda!
Whoa, now those are some stuffed mushrooms! I've always been a fan of stuffed mushrooms, and love the idea of filling them with a cheesesteak mixture.
Love this recipe! Perfect for the big game this weekend!

Love this Brenda. Stuffing a mushroom with your favorite is the best low-carb trick around (in my humble, mushroom-loving opinion!)
