A Mushroom (Pinterest) Gathering

Mushroom Holiday Pin Party

Before the ovens start to preheat, friends and family start to gather and you savor that first bite, the holiday menu has to be planned.  In between decorating, school events for the kids and shopping it can be a challenge to carve out time for discovering recipe ideas. This season the Mushroom Council decided to put that time on the calendar for you and we’re bringing the recipes directly to your Pinterest feed with #AMushroomGathering Pin Party.

From stuffed mushrooms to savory entrees, we’re dedicating an entire hour to mushroom recipes that are perfect for any party. The best part about this party is that you are ALL INVITED.  Simply be on Pinterest at 7PM CT on Tuesday, December 10th and follow along with the Mushroom Channel, A Spicy Perspective and The Little Kitchen as we share mushroom recipes for #AMushroomGathering. One lucky participant will even walk away with a Mushroom Apron and a $25 American Express gift card.

The hour will be broken into four categories to suit all of your holiday planning needs.  What does that leave you to do between now and Tuesday? Start following our Mushroom Gathering Pinterest board and create a mushroom board of your own to repin all of the delicious recipes to!

With more than 1,500 pins on the Mushroom Channel Pinterest account we’ve collected quite a few favorites, but we’re dedicating this blog post to the recipes YOU like the most.  Based on likes and repins, we compiled a list of our most popular pins.

Discovering the perfect appetizer for a holiday party or a healthy dish to keep in mind for your New Year’s resolutions can be a challenge, but we hope our list below makes your holiday planning that much simpler ( and delicious).

Pinterest Recipes to Savor

Portabella Skins

Just about every second a new mushroom recipe is showing up on Pinterest. On the Mushroom Channel Pinterest account we strive to capture as many as we can, but with 38 boards and 1,255 pins it’s easy to lose track of an amazing stuffed mushroom recipe that was pinned months ago.

When a mushroom recipe catches our attention once, we never want to forget it.  From stuffed mushrooms to burgers,we’re highlighting a recap of some of our top Pinterest recipes.

There is no reason to let the discovery end there! Be sure to browse all of our Pinterest boards for inventive mushroom dishes that are perfect for every occasion and season.

The Ultimate Summer with Mushrooms

Stuffed, Blended and Topped Mushrooms

Every season we strive to inspire our devoted mushroom lovers with recipes that fit the bill for any occasion. With the grills firing up and the patios opening, we’re turning the table and looking to get inspired by YOU this summer.  We want to discover how you fit mushrooms into your favorite summer meals in our featured “Swap It or Top It” recipe contest.  From now until July 31, enter your best mushroom recipe based on the categories of Swapability, Best Topped Burger or a featured MyPlate burger.  The grand prize winner will win $5,000 and two runners up will win a $500 and $1,000 gift card to Williams-Sonoma.

In honor of the summer festivities, we created two Pinterest boards to capture mushroom inspired dishes that use mushrooms in two different ways. Within our “Trend to Blend Board” you’ll find our favorite burgers, tacos and pizzas that blend finely chopped mushrooms with meat to make a meal packed with flavor and nutrition.  You’ll also find the “Mushrooms Top it Off Board,” which highlights everything from hot dogs to tostadas topped off with hearty mushrooms.  Every week new recipes will get added, but don’t miss checking out a few of these highlighted recipes below.

Be sure to stock up on plenty of mushrooms, and come back every week for new featured recipes that’ll have you hoping summer never ends.


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.
