Coq Au Vin Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe
This isn’t your traditional stuffed mushrooms recipe – these mushrooms have all the great flavors of coq au vin in one tasty bite. It’s the perfect appetizer!
When I was in high school, my family hosted a student from France for two summers. We also went to France and stayed with her family a few weeks. The memories will be with me forever and one of the things I remember most is, of course, the food! The food was unreal in France but our exchange student also did some cooking for us while she stayed in our home. Crêpes, tarte Tatin, and coq au vin — oh, how I wish I could transport her into my kitchen right this moment to whip up some delicious food.
I took the flavors of coq au vin and turned them into these little stuffed mushrooms. They make a great appetizer, but the filling would also be amazing in a larger portabella mushroom for an entree recipe.
These coq au vin stuffed mushrooms include bacon, chicken, red wine, onion and fresh thyme. Cheese isn’t traditionally included in coq au vin but I wanted something to hold the filling together, plus I’m a big fan of cheese.
These appetizers are little flavor bombs. They’re rich without being overly rich. I like that these stuffed mushrooms are a little unique, too.
With a fancy name! “Coq au vin” literally means rooster in wine, in case anyone asks.

Husband’s take: “This recipe is blog-worthy.” I’m not sure what that means for all the other recipes on my site.
Changes I would make: None are necessary.
Difficulty: The little buggers are a bit of a pain to stuff. It’s somewhat time-consuming but still easy.
