These mini low-carb stuffed mushrooms are the perfect finger food to serve at a cocktail party, or a keto starter before a main course.

To stuff smaller mushrooms, you need to remove the stems and scoop out the gills so that there is space to put the stuffing. Keep these stems and gills — they are delicious roughly chopped and fried with some garlic, or with scrambled eggs.

While stuffed mushrooms can sometimes be a bit soggy, this low-carb recipe partially cooks the mushrooms before stuffing, which helps to remove moisture and prevent any sogginess.

For even creamier cheesy stuffed mushrooms, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of cream cheese, goat's cheese or mascarpone to the spinach.
