These unbelievably tasty mushrooms owe their creaminess to three kinds of cheese. A kick from spicy sausage perfectly balances the earthiness of the mushroom.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love stuffed mushrooms, especially when they're stuffed with goat cheese and sausage. The combination of three types of cheese (Chevre, Parmesan, and Gruyere) make the filling creamy and, when mixed with the browned sausage, gives the filling tons of flavor. If you're not a fan of goat cheese, cream cheese is a great substitute. Before serving, sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan and you have a great party appetizer.
