Jo's Chicken Sausage Stuffed Portabello Mushrooms

My Sunflower Farmer's Market makes it's own sausage. They have a few different types, but my favourite is the Chicken and Apple. It's made from all natural, hormone free chicken and it tastes absolutely delicious. I always buy it for any of the dishes calling for sausage. I mince all the ingredients in this recipe because it's easier to mix and pack into the mushrooms. This recipe can be tripled if you wish to make it for 4-6. It's gluten free.

Cook:

20 Min

Ingredients

4 large
portabella mushrooms
4 Tbsp
olive oil
2 slice
turkey bacon (minced)
4 Tbsp
minced vedalia onion (minced)
4 Tbsp
sweet bell pepper, any colour (minced)
2 large
garlic cloves (minced)
1 c
gluten free bread crumbs (divided)
1/2 c
romano cheese
2 Tbsp
parsley
2 tsp
fresh ground black pepper or to taste
2 tsp
paprika
1-2 tsp
thyme
2 large
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Remove the stems from the mushrooms and set aside. Rub the mushrooms all over with olive oil. Mince the mushroom stems and set aside.
2
Preheat your oven to 400'F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
3
Heat a medium sized skillet. I get my sausage in a casing, I remove the sausage and discard the casing.
Add the sausage and cook until most of the pink is gone. Add the minced turkey bacon and saute it for a minute or two.
4
Next add the minced onion, bell pepper and garlic, saute for another couple of minutes. Turn off the heat and set it aside.
5
If you want to make your own Gluten Free bread crumbs, I took two pieces of bread and ripped them up and processed them until they were fine crumbs. I have never seen gluten free crumbs here, so making my own was necessary.
6
Mix the bread crumbs and the cheese in a bowl. Reserve 6 tablespoons so you can sprinkle it on the top of the stuffed mushrooms.
7
In a large bowl add the bread crumb/cheese mixture, minced mushroom stems, sausage mixture, herbs and spices and gently toss to combine. Add the two eggs and mix well until you have a sticky mixture.
8
Stuff each of the 4 mushrooms well. You should have a good mound on each. Set on the prepared baking sheets and top with your reserved bread crumb cheese mixture.
9
Bake at 400'F for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm.

Enjoy!
