Parmesan, garlic, sausage, and Swiss chard stuffed portobello mushrooms make a fantastic dish with very little prep time.

I just love portobello mushrooms. Stuff them with meat and parmesan cheese, and you’ve got a winning recipe.

Don’t be afraid to stuff these mushrooms like you’ve never stuffed mushrooms before. They do get pretty tall, but that’s ok.

They do cook through, and the mushroom adds some lovely moisture. The Swiss chard is great for texture and sneaking in some vitamins. And for making them taller.

I suggest serving these with a big salad that has a vinaigrette like this one. You could also take one of these bad boys to work the next day for a lunch you’re sure to look forward to. I’ve done this, and they reheat well.

I hope you will try these sausage and Swiss chard stuffed portobello mushrooms soon!

Sausage and Swiss Chard Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

A simple, easy, and elegant dish that only takes 5 minutes to prepare.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 1 hour
Total: 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 portobello mushrooms
  • 1 small bunch Swiss chard
  • 1 pound bratwurst sausages (I use Johnsonville brats 5-pack)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 8-10 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Pre-heat oven to 385F.
  • Remove stalks from mushrooms and take Swiss chard leaves off stems. Chop Swiss chard into smaller pieces.
  • Remove sausages from casings and put sausage meat into a bowl. Add Swiss chard, garlic powder, worcestershire sauce, pepper, salt, parmesan, egg, and thyme (remove leaves from the twigs). Mix using your hands.
  • Place an equal amount of meat over each mushroom cap (gill side up).
  • Place mushroom caps onto a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for one hour, or until sausage is cooked.

    1. Hi Todd! Unfortunately, I do not have that info. I am not a trained nutritionist, so I don’t feel comfortable providing nutrition info as it may not be accurate. The nutrition info will vary depending on the ingredients you use. Plugging the exact weights/measurements of the actual ingredients you use into one of the free calculators out there should give you a good idea. I usually would have one stuffed mushroom as a serving.

  1. Hi Natasha!

    I’m loving this post. I actually wanted to comment to commend you on the photos. They are quite stellar. I know a few others already complimented you, but let me tell you what I like the most – the angle of the lighting and the surface you used. Is that parchment paper? The 5 o’clock lighting really brings out the details of the mushroom filling. Nice job. I think this may be one of your best.

    Anyway, I’d like to prepare something like this. I, like so many others, love mushrooms. I’d probably consume 20 of these things if given the chance. I’ll put this on my never ending to-do list.



    1. Thank you Jay!! It’s wax paper on top of a black chalkboard šŸ™‚ I’m glad you like the photos. Let me know if you do try the recipe!

  4. HI Natasha!

    Again, beautiful photography! This looks delicious! I always want to do more with portabello mushrooms, but all I can ever think to do is to chop them up and put them in sauce (delicious, but boring!) I’m so trying these! They look so good- and quite simple, too šŸ™‚ Thanks for posting!
