photo by limeandspoontt
- Ready In:
- 24 medium mushroom caps
- 1 (16 ounce) package hot ground pork breakfast sausage (Jimmy Dean is good) or (16 ounce) package regular ground pork breakfast sausage (Jimmy Dean is good)
- 8 ounces cream cheese or 8 ounces neufchatel cheese, I use Neufchatel
- 2 ounces monterey jack cheese or 2 ounces monterey jack pepper cheese, shredded
- 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes, less for less heat
- 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, shredded
- Wash the mushrooms and pat dry with paper towels.
- Remove the stems and set aside (they can be minced and added to the sausage mixture later is desired).
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cook and crumble the sausage in a large skillet until done, drain, and place in a mixing bowl. Add the cream cheese, jack cheese, crushed red pepper flakes and minced stems if desired. Mix well.
- Place 1 heaping teaspoon of the mixture into each mushroom cap.
- Place the stuffed mushroom caps on a rimmed baking pan, sprinkle with parmesan, and bake for 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
- Serve stuffed mushrooms on a decorative serving platter.
- Sometimes I make them ahead and line a tupperware with papertowels and put them in it. Then they are ready to bake just before the event.

Loved these stuffed mushrooms - my DH practically inhaled them! I shared some with my neighbor and she loved them as well. I did not add the red pepper flakes as I used the "hot" sausage. These mushrooms will definitely be a crowd pleaser at any party or gathering. Made for the Tailgate Tag, September, 2011.

I'm not as active here anymore, but you can find me playing at the new recipezazz.com. I'm not a great photographer, but I love to take food photos with Freddy Cat to bring a smile to people's day. I love to cook and share good food with other people. I have a very large collection of cookbooks. I used to enjoy being able to look up recipes on Zaar by ingredients I had on hand. I miss the Zaar tag game community. Everyone was so nice, and it was super fun. Ah, the good ol' days.
