Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms


  • 2 1/2 lbs. button mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground Italian sausage (mild or hot)
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp onion, chopped
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella


  1. Wipe the mushrooms with a damp paper towel to clean. Remove the stems and discard. Arrange the mushrooms on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. In a large skillet, brown the sausage over medium-high heat. Drain the grease. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook for one minute. Add the cream cheese, 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese, panko breadcrumbs, and parsley to the pan and stir until well combined and the cream cheese is completely melted. Add in mozzarella and mix until completely incorporated. Remove mixture from the pan to a bowl and set aside to slightly cool.
  4. Stuff each mushroom cap with some of the sausage mixture and top with the remaining parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until bottom mushroom is tender & top mixture is golden brown.
