Cheesy Bison and Shallot Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms Topped with Zucchini and Parmesan


I was recently inspired to make these Stuffed Mushrooms when reading a fellow foodies blog postย last week from Rufus’ Food and Spirits Guide. I had been thinking about stuffing some for about a month and when I saw his post, it sealed the deal. ๐Ÿ™‚ I served them with some saffron and tomato rice and some sauteed Swiss Chard. It was a great meal, I’m sure Evan will be asking for this one again…

Also I’d like to thank you all for voting for me in the Marx Foods Fregola Dessert Challenge, I won! Now for the hard part… picking out $100 worth of Marx foods, Aye!!!

Prep: 20 min

Serves: 2


  • 1/2 lb Fresh bison, ground.
  • 1/8 C. Minced Shallots
  • 1 Clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 Large portabella mushrooms
  • 3/4 C. Cheese blend, I used provolone, swiss, asiago, and white cheddar.
  • 1/2 C. Light sour cream
  • 2 TBS. Parmesan Reggiano , (the good kind please).
  • 1 Small Zucchini, sliced in thin circles.
  • 1/2 TBS. Butter
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • 1 tsp. Zestybeandog Fine Herb Blend


  1. Pre-Heat Oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium skillet, brown bison, shallots, and garlic until cooked.
  3. Add in sour cream, most of the cheese blend (save a couple pinches to top the meat on you place in mushroom), and spices, mix well.
  4. Wash off mushrooms if need be. Transfer meat mixture into mushrooms. Put remaining blend cheese on top.
  5. Heat same skillet back up to high (should still be hot) and add butter, and brown zucchini rounds and flip and repeat.
  6. Top mushrooms with zucchini’s (about 5-6 per mushroom). Then sprinkle a TBS of parm on top of each.
  7. Bake for about 20 min.

Enjoy and cheers!

  1. Congratulations on the win! Well deserved. I love portobello mushrooms – not something I see so often in France, but so delicious. As Greg said, I love that you’ve popped bison inside – Love bison so much (surprise, surprise, another thing I can’t buy in France, though there are a few restaurants which sell it!)

  2. Thanks Charles! I love portabello’s too ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t know what I’d do with out these mushrooms or bison…”GASP” it would be a sad day for me, especially without the bison!

  3. Sounds yummy! So whats in the zesty bean dogs fine herb mix or is this a secret recipe. I am so happy you stopped by my website so I could find you. I am now a happy new follower. Looking forward to keeping in touch. BAM
