This is a fantastic stuffing that can be used for mushrooms, squash, or even those crispy filo cups found in the freezer section of stores. Once you try this simple stuffing, you'll be looking for things to stuff it in.

Very tasty! I used mild sausage, because I thought stuffing jalapeno peppers with the hot sausage would make them too hot, but I was wrong! Next time I will use the hot sausage, and there will be a next time! Thank you for sharing this.

I make this with the mushrooms all the time! The bite size mushrooms are the best. I usually make the mixture ahead of time and just reheat what I need to make about 20 mushrooms at a time. Thanks KelBel! :)
