Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

I was visiting a friend on a cold night and his wife pulled "stuffed mushrooms" out of the oven. I was tired and cold and remember being warmed completely by the flavor and richness of the dish.

I never got her recipe, but I improvised my own which I serve at parties and family get-togethers. Some folks won't eat mushrooms (to their great misfortune!), but those who do fall all over this dish.

This is a wonderful recipe for anyone who enjoys mushrooms.  I recommend trying to buy uniformly sized mushrooms, the larger the better. It will make for a nicer presentation. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 lb
    ground hot sausage (Jimmy Dean, Tennessee Pride, etc.)
  • 1 pkg
    fresh button (white) mushrooms (8 oz.)
  • 3/4 c
    water, as needed
  • 1/2 c
    breadcrumbs (I prefer Italian style)
  • 1/4 c
    fresh grated parmesan cheese

    clove of minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • salt pinch
    as needed

How to Make Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

Step-by-Step

  1. Remove the stems from mushrooms. Some will pop out of the caps easily. Others may require removal with a small paring knife.
  2. Apply oil to a medium baking dish and coat. Place caps (stem side up) in the dish forming a series of small cups with the caps. Evenly distribute. Don't worry about gaps in between. Just evenly space.
  3. Mince mushroom stems.
  4. Brown sausage in a medium skillet with garlic. Drain.
  5. Place sausage back into skillet on medium heat. Add breadcrumbs, cheese, mushroom stems, garlic and slowly add water as this mixture cooks. Reduce heat and cover. You want the cheese to melt and for the concoction to have the texture of a thick paste. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Should take about 15 minutes.
  6. Spoon mixture into open mushroom caps. Take the leftover mixture and fill in the gaps.
  7. Place in preheated oven at 350 degrees. Bake approximately 40 minutes until mushrooms are soft. Serve and enjoy!
