How to Make Creamy herb shrimp stuffed mushroom purses


  • 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking ban with cooking spray.
  • 2In a small bowl, combine cheese, shrimp, dash of hot sauce (more if you want it spicy) and a spritz of lemon juice.
  • 3On a dry surface (I use a floured countertop) lay out phyllo and brush top side lightly with melted butter. Lay next sheet on top of first until you have 6 sheets. You can butter every other one if you want to cut down on butter.
  • 4Cut phyllo with a SHARP knife horizontally down the middle and then cut 3 more times the opposite way to make 6 even rectangles.
  • 5Place a washed and dried mushroom cap open side up on each piece of phyllo. Stuff with cheese mixture and season with salt and pepper.
  • 6Carefully lift the sides of the phyllo up over the sides of the mushroom so that they resemble little bundles. Twist the top slightly and pinch so that they seal.
  • 7Repeat steps 3-6 for the remaining phyllo and mushrooms. You should have 12 mushrooms left so 2 more rounds should do it.
  • 8Place shrimp purses on sprayed baking sheet and brush with beaten egg. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
