My Dad has made these Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms for years.
They are so delicious and couldn’t be any easier. These are great served as an appetizer or simply as a snack.
Publix has their whole button mushrooms on sale and the Jimmy Dean sausage.
The sausage was 2/$5; if you used the $1/2 coupon in the Winter Savings booklet, each roll was $2. I always keep sausage on hand. It is excellent browned and added to a can of baked beans or cooked and scrambled in some eggs.
But I digress. These mushrooms were fabulous. And I even have some stuffing left over that I’m debating using.
Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe:
Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms Ingredients:
1 16-oz. package of whole mushrooms
1 16-oz. package of Jimmy Dean sausage
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (I used 1/2 white cheddar and 1/2 mozzarella)
How To Make Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms:
Brown the sausage in a skillet. Remove and drain on paper towels. Meanwhile, clean the mushrooms and remove the stems. Chop stems and sautes in the skillet over medium heat in sausage drippings. Add the sausage to the pan and fold in the cheese until melted.
Put mushroom caps on a broiler pan or baking pan fitted with a wire rack (I put my cookie cooling rack- make sure yours is oven-proof- on top of my baking sheet). This allows the juice from the mushrooms to drip down. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender.
