Stuffed Mushroom Caps are filled with Italian sausage, parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, and other goodies! It's such an excellent appetizer, especially for Thanksgiving, as it can be made in advance and popped into the oven before serving.
Ingredients
  Baby bella mushroom 1 1⁄2 Pound
  Italian sausage 1⁄3 Pound (fresh)
  Grapeseed oil 1 Tablespoon
  Cream cheese 4 Ounce
  Chopped parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Grated parmesan cheese 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Italian bread crumbs 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Salt To Taste
  Olive oil To Taste (for drizzling)
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

GETTING READY:

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

MAKING:

2. Rinse the mushrooms briefly under cold running water to remove the dirt. Remove the stems and discard (or save for vegetable stock).

3. Remove the sausage from the casing and cook with a tablespoon of grapeseed oil in a skillet set over medium high heat. Use a spatula to break up the meat, and cook for about 5 minutes, until fully cooked through and brown.

4. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, the cooked sausage, parsley, parmesan cheese, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

6. Place the stemmed mushrooms on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place 2 teaspoon scoops of the sausage filling into each mushroom cap.

7. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the stuffing has browned.

SERVING:

8. Enjoy!
