Italian Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

"I *love* mushrooms and I am always looking for an excuse to try out a new mushroom recipe. I was looking for a stuffed mushroom recipe for my New Year's party but I didn't want one that involved cream cheese because I was already using it in a few recipes for the night. I found this one on All Recipes and it didn't look to be here. So, I added it so I can have it stored in my menus. I think I will play with it to make it fit smaller mushrooms but that shouldn't be very difficult."

  1. I love mushrooms, too, and I love this recipe! Although this is an appetizer recipe, it sounded so good that I made it as a main course, with crusty bread and a fruit salad for dessert. The mushrooms cooked perfectly, not too mushy, and they didn't taste undercooked, as some stuffed mushrooms can. I scooped out the brown gills of the mushrooms so there would be more room for the yummy filling! I also made it about an hour before dinner, and covered it and put it in the fridge, so I just had to pop it into the oven when it was time for dinner. Thanks for this great recipe, Sarah Jayne. I'm going to triple this recipe and have it for one of my SuperBowl "snacks". I hope I can get a few before everyone eats them all up!


I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it.
