Button mushrooms are stuffed with a mixture of Italian sausage, garlic, cream cheese, and Parmesan cheese for a delicious and easy holiday appetizer!
A couple of weeks ago I had a big cooking and photoshoot day where I made six holiday appetizers. I must have been craving mushrooms because three of the six appetizers were mushroom-centric.
Unfortunately, only one of the appetizers was a winner, and that’s these Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms! I mean, how can you really go wrong with Italian sausage, cream cheese, Parmesan, and mushrooms? YUM!
For some reason I thought the process of removing the mushroom stems and stuffing the mushrooms was going to be complicated, but it was not at all.
Turns out, the stems of mushrooms are actually pretty easy to just pop off. I thought it would be like when you stuff a portobello and you have to use a spoon to scoop all of the stuff out. Nope. Just pop it off and you’re good to go.
The filling of these Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms is simply Italian sausage (you can do mild or hot), onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, cream cheese, and Parmesan cheese.
This holiday appetizer would be really easy to prep a couple of hours in advance and then pop in the oven a half hour before you need them. They are even tasty warm and at room temperature.
Either way – your guests with love these Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms!
