  • 250 g mushrooms
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 125 g sour cream
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • ¼ cup parmesan


  • Heat your oven to 200 degrees celsius
  • Thickly slice your mushrooms, place in an oven-proof dish with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 25 mins.
  • Remove the mushrooms from the oven, stir through the remaining ingredients.
  • Return the mushroom dip to the oven, reduce the temperature to 150 degrees celsius and bake for 20-30 mins until bubbling around the edges and the cheese is melted.
  • Serve with chips, crackers or crusty bread!



  • Choose a melty cheese as your grated cheese, Colby, Gruyere, grated Mozzarella all work well.
  • If you are a blue cheese fan, you can skip the parmesan and add some of this too! Because sometimes the more cheese the better!
  • Although this is a mushroom dip recipe, you can serve it in a few ways that aren't a dip! It's great stirred through pasta, think of it as the ultimate mushroom mac and cheese! Or serve it as a side to grilled steak or chicken.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutes

  • Mushrooms: I used Meadow Mushroom small portabello mushrooms in this recipe, but this dip is equally as nice with button mushrooms or swiss browns.
  • Grated cheese: When I make this dip I use a gruyere cheese as I like its flavour and it's a great melting cheese, but you can use your favourite cheese grated.
  • Sour cream: Creme fraiche works well too
  • Mayonnaise: Garlic aioli works well too... as long as you like garlic!
