baked mushrooms and feta

I just bought some Emile Henry brulee dishes because I had plans to make creme brulee for my wife. However the first thing I made was a simple shiitake mushrooms and feta baked dish for one of our breakfasts. When I made my ribs eggs Benedict, I made a side dish of Shiitake Saganaki, which is just mushrooms and feta fried in a skillet with seasonings. This baked mushrooms and feta is almost the exact same thing…except baked.

You can use any mushrooms you want in this recipe, I just chose Shiitake because that is what I had on hand. However white button, or hen of the woods, or chanterelle would all be tasty in this dish.

For seasonings I just used what I would use when making a proper Greek salad. After all, if I’m using feta I may as well keep with the Greek theme. In fact, a dish of feta baked with olive oil, peppers, and tomatoes is a very popular Greek appetizer.

For this baked mushrooms and feta dish a healthy amount of Greek extra virgin olive oil, a tablespoon of chopped oregano, some salt, and a splash of red wine vinegar is all that’s needed to season everything well.

Servings 4 people


  • Baking Dish


  • 250 grams Mushrooms I used Shiitake in this recipe, but your mushroom of choice will be fine
  • 200 grams Feta Cheese try to find authentic sheep's milk feta
  • 1 tbsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Paprika I used Spanish hot paprika for this recipe, but it is optional if you want to leave it out.


  • Cut the mushrooms into quarters and place in a large bowl.
  • Cut the feta into small cubes (about 1 cm) and place into the bowl. Reserve 16 cubes.
  • Add the olive oil, salt, oregano and paprika to the bowl and give everything a good toss.
  • Divide the contents into 4 baking dishes (I used brulee dishes) and put 4 unseasoned pieces of feta on top.
  • Place in the oven at 175 C or 350 F for 20 minutes, or until the corners of the unseasoned feta begin to turn black. Serve immediately.


You could save these in the fridge overnight and just pop them in the oven the next morning if you are making them for breakfast, or for large groups.
