Tips for Making Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms:

First, I suggest cooking the ground sausage in advance.  If you have a Ninja Foodi, you can cook it right in the pot of the Ninja Foodi on saute. It’s that simple.

The meat can also be prepped in advance and then freeze it until you are ready to use it.

Once you are ready to make the stuffed mushrooms, you will want to blend all the ingredients in a food processor.  This gives them the perfect consistency for stuffing.

I actually put about half of the stems from the mushrooms back in the food processor and blend those right in.  It’s a great way to use the stems without going to waste. That means if I am making 24 mushrooms, I’ll use the stems of 12 mushrooms.  

Do you use oil when cooking mushrooms in the air fryer?

I highly recommend always having a bottle of Olive Oil Cooking Spray available when using the air fryer.  Before you put the mushrooms in, you will want to spray the bottom of the basket or foil with it.

Then, once you have the mushrooms ready to cook, give it another good spray of olive oil spray.  This helps the food avoid drying out while it quickly cooks.

When should you wash mushrooms?

Always wash the mushrooms right before you plan to use them to avoid them getting too slimy!

Can you freeze stuffed mushrooms?

You can freeze them before you plan to cook them.  I prefer to make them fresh and eat them quickly after.  It’s going to come down to personal preference.

I feel that they have the best flavor when made fresh and served fresh.
