A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Four years later, she has maintained a 65-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

Keto stuffed mushrooms make for a great appetizer or small snack-style dinner, however traditional stuffed mushrooms use lots of breadcrumbs in the filling…and honestly, I don’t know why! These stuffed mushrooms, which I’ve prepared before for guests but made a small batch last night for dinner because I wasn’t terribly hungry, are filling, delicious and don’t need any carby breadcrumbs for flavor! You can also make keto stuffed mushrooms that are a little heartier with 1/4 cup of pork rind crumbs to replace traditional breadcrumbs. Like I said, I don’t think they are at all needed but they do add a bit more texture to this stuffed mushroom recipe. If you don’t like crab, I also have a keto sausage stuffed mushroom recipe that is delicious!

I am currently obsessed with our air fryer, so cooked these stuffed mushrooms in it, however you can also just pop them in the oven at the same temperature – just add 5 more minutes. Either way: deliciously satisfying!

Health Benefits of Mushrooms

As we age, selenium is shown to help manage oxidative stress? – which is linked to both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. And, selenium also boosts the immune system and in critical in thyroid function. Mushrooms also are rich in B vitamins and potassium, which is a critical need when following a keto diet.
