This recipe is a real treat! Imagine soft and tender baked potatoes that are stuffed with onions, mushrooms, and cheese. Yummy!

I love the texture and taste of baked potatoes and when you stuff them with mushrooms and onion it takes them to the next level.
Think it looks complicated? Let me tell you that it’s not! The recipe is easy and just looks like you slaved away.
Serve with a side salad and some sour cream for a perfect meal.
10 medium potatoes
Ground black pepper
For the filling:
1 medium onion
20 champignon mushrooms
1 cup grated cheeses
(yellow, parmesan, kashkaval, gouda)
Ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt (if needed, the cheeses may be salty so adjust the added salt)
1. Peel the potatoes and cook them in boiling salted water for around 15 minutes.
2. Preheat an oven to 200°C and bake the potatoes for around 40 minutes, let cool. Cut off the top of each potato and scoop out the middle. It’ll look like a canoe.
3. To prepare the filling:
Chop the onion and sauté until golden. Chop the mushrooms and add to the onion and sauté for around 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, let cool, and add the cheeses. Stuff the potatoes with the filling and return to the oven. Bake at 180 degrees for another 15 minutes.
Good to know…
If possible, don’t use small potatoes because they shrink during baking. Medium to large ones are best. You can prepare the filling ahead of time and stuff the potatoes just before serving. You can prepare everything in advance. You can use any melting cheese you like. Serve with garlic / ranch-style sauce if you want but it’ definitely not mandatory.
I’ve always been a bit deterred from making stuffed potatoes because you have to scoop out the middle. To me it seems like a lot of work and I never had the patience for it but let me tell you that it’s so easy! The potatoes are soft and warm and it’s really not a problem to take out the insides. What do you do with the insides? Eat it, of course, it’s delicious! I couldn’t stop noshing…
