Sausage-Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms With Mozzarella Cheese

This is a killer recipe for stuffed portobellas! Make certain that the croutons are processed to very fine and adjust the cayenne or hot sauce to taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly brush olive oil on both sides of the potobello mushroom caps then sprinkle the inside lightly with salt (this is optional but I most always do!).
  2. In a skillet brown the sausage meat with green onions crumbling into very small pieces until browned; drain any fat then cool.
  3. In a medium bowl beat eggs with milk, fresh parsley, basil, fresh garlic, cayenne pepper or hot sauce until well combined.
  4. Add in the Parmesan cheese and the ground croutons starting with about 1-1/2 cups ground croutons, you might have to add in more later; mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
  5. Add in the cooked sausage/onion mixture; mix well (the mixture should be wet but still firm enough to hold together if the mixture is too soft add in a small amount more of the croutons at a time just until the mixture binds together).
  6. Season mixture with black pepper to taste.
  7. Spoon the sausage mixture evenly between the portobella mushroom tops.
  8. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  9. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes.
  10. Sprinkle the tops with grated mozzeralla cheese.
  11. Delicious!

I had to use a great deal of substitutes (regular pork sausage vs. italian, bread crumbs+seasonings vs. croutons, italian blend cheese vs. mozzarella) and they still turned out perfect! Love the recipe!

Well, Kitten... I have actually made a many of your recipes and needless say this one is another great one. My BF requested these for his birthday dinner and they came out fantastic!!! I did halve these for the two of us. Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious! This recipe tastes exactly like the sausage-stuffed portabellas I buy from a local gourmet shop. The recipe is really easy and the end result very satisfying. Next time I am going to use baby portabella caps and make as an appetizer.
