My baked cheesy mushroom dip is a crowd-pleaser. This hot baked dip is so cheesy, flavourful, and perfect for hosting. This is the ultimate appetizer for game day and it can be easily prepped the night before. Some of my family members don’t like mushrooms and they couldn’t taste them at ALL in this dip! They ate half of the dip without even realizing what was in it. This dip is so versatile, and can be made with other veggies, such as spinach, artichokes, bell peppers, jalapeños, and so much more, so feel free to experiment.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients 

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil, or any mild oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 5 white button mushrooms, finely diced, (50 grams total)
  • 2 cups (300 grams) herbed cream cheese or spreadable cheese , (I used 2 packs of Boursin)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped chives, optional
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella or any melty cheese, 80 grams (measure with your heart)

Optional Ingredients:

  • other veggies, such as spinach, artichokes, jalapeño, or bacon bits
  • adding ¼ cup of sour cream or mayo will give you a thinner dip

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  • In a pan over medium-high heat, add the oil and let it heat up. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes or until they are browned. Take the pan off the heat and set aside.
  • Add the cream cheese to a bowl with the chives, if using. Add the mushroom and onion mixture and stir until fully combined. Pour the mixture into a ramekin or any small baking dish, making sure to distribute it evenly with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
  • Top it off with the mozzarella, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The cheese should be golden and bubbly. Enjoy with pita, or crostini, or any bread of choice.
  • Optionally, adding ¼ cup sour cream or mayo to the cream cheese mixture will give you a thinner dip. I left it out but you are more than welcome to add it in as well.

Notes

Adding ¼ cup of sour cream or mayo to the cream cheese will give you a thinner dip. I left it out but you are more than welcome to add it in as well.
If you don’t like mushrooms you can add finely chopped spinach, bell peppers, jalapeños, or any other veggies instead.
You can prep this dip the day before serving, leave it in the fridge covered, and then uncover and bake the following day.
Any mushroom will work in this recipe, just be sure to dice it finely.
You can use any creamy cheese of choice. I personally love Boursin as it comes in many different flavours, such as garlic and herbs or shallot and chives. If you use plain cream cheese, you may want to flavour it accordingly with fresh or dried herbs.
This dip is best served hot. You can reheat it if needed as the cheese will harden as it cools.
I will link a ramekin in both of my amazon stores, Canada & USA or you can check the dollar store as well.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
