A Day Dedicated to Mushrooms

Portabella Mushroom Love Note

Every day offers a reason to celebrate the food we love, but when there is an official day designated to the mighty mushroom, it’s important to take the celebration up another notch.  April 16 is recognized as the Day of the Mushroom and we’re honoring our favorite fungi in the most delicious way possible – multiple mushroom recipes.

Take a look at a few of the mushroom highlights below and on the full Pinterest board.


  • Roasted Portabella Eggs Benedict – April 16 also happens to be National Eggs Benedict Day. Celebrate two occasions in one dish with this tasty brunch or brinner (a.k.a Breakfast for Dinner) treat!
  • Chipotle Mushroom Sub Sandwich with Chunky Pico De Gallo – It’s easy to get stuck in a sandwich rut, but Poor Girl Eats Well brings vibrant flavors to life in this delightful sub, and with the hearty mushrooms you’ll barely notice it’s meatless.
  • Creamy Mushroom and Kale Quesadillas – Simple and delicious with under ten ingredients, this quesadilla from Eat, Live, Run is perfect as an appetizer (but who really wants to share)?
  • Mushroom Tacos with Salsa Verde – Even the kids will get into the mushroom love today when you replace a portion of ground beef with mushrooms in these blended tacos. 

Happy Cooking! If you have a mushroom recipe to highlight leave us some love in the comments or on Twitter and Facebook.
