Spooky Stuffed Mushroom Spiders

I originally saw this Spooky Stuffed Mushroom Spiders on Pinterest.  The link took me to a post on Krogers where I found the cute little spiders were made from black olives.  My recipe is a little different then the one on the grocery store site.  I’ve been having fun making stuffed mushrooms since my Pampered Chef days and can’t believe I never thought of adding spiders!  Here are the ingredients you will need:


  • 24 large white stuffing mushrooms, stems removed
  • 1 package (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1⁄2 cup cooked Italian sausage crumbles
  • 1⁄4 garlic salt
  • 24 large black olives


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place mushroom caps, stem side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Cook 15 minutes to soften slightly. Remove from oven; set aside.
  3. Mix together cream cheese, cheddar, sausage and garlic. Flip mushroom caps stem side up. Divide mixture evenly between mushrooms.
  4. Cut 12 olives in half lengthwise. Place 1 half in the center of each mushroom. Cut remaining olives into “legs.” Arrange 8 “legs” around each olive half to resemble a spider.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes until mushrooms are tender and filling is hot.
  6. Refrigerate leftovers.

These were so easy to make in a hurry.  If you don’t have the patience to make the spiders don’t be afraid to use those plastic spider rings.  Just be sure to warn folks that you used fake!   Take advantage of my print option on this recipe.  This can be printed or saved as PDF on your computer hard drive to use later – enjoy!
