Have you thrown a party? Chances are that you served stuffed mushrooms as a snack, which people don’t really seem to enjoy anymore. If you’ve got leftovers, it’s a waste to throw them away, as mushrooms are far from cheap.
If you have stored your leftovers correctly, reheating might be an option so that you can eat them a second time. Whether they’re stuffed with crab, sausage, or other fillings, you can always reheat your stuffed mushrooms by using one of the methods explained below.
Reheating stuffed mushrooms in the microwave
The easiest way to reheat your stuffed mushrooms is in the microwave. It may dry them out a little, but it’s a quick and easy way to get the job done.
You can do so by following these steps:
- Place your leftover stuffed mushrooms on a microwave-safe plate.
- Add a damp paper towel on top of the mushrooms.
- Heat your stuffed mushrooms on a medium setting for about 30-45 seconds.
- Check the temperature to see if it’s right for you.
Pros of using the microwave
You can reheat your stuffed mushrooms within less than a minute.
Cons of using the microwave
By reheating your stuffed mushrooms in a microwave, they tend to dry out. It could also end up in a bad result if the ingredients inside your mushroom are known to taste bad after reheating, such as eggs.
Using an air fryer to reheat your leftover stuffed mushrooms
If you are looking for a better result than the microwave, and if you also have enough patience/time, you could choose for the air fryer to reheat your stuffed mushrooms.
Follow these steps for perfect reheating:
- Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place your stuffed mushrooms in the basket for 4 minutes.
- Check if they’re ready. If not, let them run for another 30 seconds before re-checking this step.
Pros of using the air fryer
Reheating food for a longer duration on a lower temperature is known to produce better results, which is also the case for leftover stuffed mushrooms.
Cons of using the air fryer
The preheating and reheating process take up about 8 minutes of your time, which is longer than if you would’ve used a different method.
Reheating stuffed mushrooms in the oven
A third method you might be interested in, is reheating your stuffed mushrooms in the oven. This might take a while, but as it’s a hands-off method it shouldn’t really matter, right?
Reheat your stuffed mushrooms using the oven like so:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place your stuffed mushrooms inside an oven-safe container and wrap it in foil.
- Place the container in the oven, and wait for 4-5 minutes.
- Check if the mushrooms have reached your desired temperature.
Pros of using the oven
The oven gives a great taste to your stuffed mushrooms, after which you will definitely enjoy the reheated result.
Cons of using the oven
Just like the air fryer, using the oven takes much longer than the microwave method. It’s worth the result, though.
