Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

There’s a rule (and if there isn’t one, I’m making it up right now) that when it comes to food, the word “stuffed” increases awesomeness, like, exponentially.

Think about it.  Poultry, pork chops, potatoes, pasta.  Potentially delicious on their own, but then you stuff them with something and whoa.  It’s like delicious squared.

Which brings me to the topic of this post.

Now, I love mushrooms.  Big time.  Over steak, in a salad or soup, especially with a pasta dish.  Or just by themselves.  It’s all good.  I’m not picky.

But then stuffing is involved and oh my gracious goodness.  Magic happens.

Stuffed mushrooms are probably my favorite appetizer.  I will never pass them up when they’re offered at an event and have come close to stabbing fellow guests who made the unfortunate mistake of getting in my way.  I have a difficult time restraining myself when I see them on a restaurant menu.

I’d pretty much eat them at every meal.  For every meal.

And then it occurred to me that I could make them at home.  When I woke up from my joy coma I started looking for recipes and found a few which appealed to me and adapted one to include sausage.  See, I love sausage only slightly less than I love mushrooms.    I felt it my duty to get these two crazy kids together.  Uniting them in a marriage of scrumptious, savory delight.

I think you should do the same.


Are you as in love with mushrooms as I am? What’s your favorite appetizer?

It’s probably a good thing that appetizers are time consuming to make, because I would totally eat appetizers every meal of the day. These look great! I could totally see myself trying them out with veg sausage.


That’s it. You’re coming over and I’m blindfolding you and forcing you to eat things. Not bad things. Just things you’ve never had. 😉


I’ve had some so-so stuffed mushrooms, but adding the sausage ensures such wonderful flavor! These sound amazing!


Thanks! You’re right, sometimes they’re “meh”. Will I eat them anyway? Yeah. But that’s another story. 😉


Um…wait a minute…I MADE them for you! And you didn’t eat any! This was way back in November, when you guys came over for turkey mother. 🙂


Why did I not eat any? I must have been in a coma or something. I really don’t remember that. So I guess we’ll have to try this again some time. OK?


Oh, my stomach is growling and my mouth is salivating.

Pretty picture, huh?

HOLY COW, right before dinner, did NOT time this visit well.

Looks absolutely out of this world scrumptious.


Mushrooms? Are you kidding???? I think there might be a fight if you and I were at the same place that’s serving mushrooms. seriously. I can make a meal out of them and I have before (I don’t recommend it though…e’hem)

I AM keeping this recipe for sure, but I will be doubling or tripling the recipe so someone else can have one. ~*snicker*~ You might just be my new BFF! LOL!


You are too funny! We’re just going to have to be sure we never show up at the same event where stuffed mushrooms will be served. Okay? 😉


Stuffed mushrooms are a favorite! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe – these look wonderful! Just pinned them – YAY!


Mushroom eating friends – I love it! And yeah, I really don’t understand people who don’t like mushrooms. It’s totally beyond my understanding. 😉


Yes, stuffing things generally makes them that much more wonderful. Aren’t mushrooms the best? I don’t get why some people (like my husband) don’t like them!
