Growing up, my mom used to make these stuffed mushrooms whenever we had parties at our house and I absolutely loved them! They are so simple and easy (not to mention delicious!)…yet, I had never made them for my own family! I came across the “recipe” for these stuffed mushrooms a few days ago while looking in my ‘childhood recipe box’ for my No Bake Cookies recipe and decided I needed to make them ASAP. (*Random, fun fact about me… When I was a kid, I spent hours using a TYPEWRITER to type up a set of recipe cards with all of my favorite recipes. I still have them all and it’s really fun to look through them now as an adult. Of course, many of the recipes call for margarine, crushed Oreos, cans of soup, etc. Even as a kid, I was super organized with my recipes. I guess nothing has changed…except for the typewriter part. ha!) Anyway, when I saw the index card for stuffed mushrooms, I just knew I needed to make these again for my family. We weren’t having a party, but I made them for dinner and served them with baked potatoes. Worked for us, anyway! If you’ve never made these, you’re definitely missing out on something super easy, but sooo good. They would make for a great appetizer for your next party…or, if you’re like me, you can just serve them for a special dinner treat. 🙂
Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms
- Bulk Italian Sausage (I buy my local, free-range pork from Honored Prairie)
- Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Wash and core mushrooms. Fill each cap with uncooked sausage. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. That’s it! DELICIOUS!!!
As I pulled them out of the oven, it brought me back to the smell of my mom’s kitchen before a big party. I could actually feel the same anticipation and excitement I felt as a kid with all of the people coming over! Of course, when I pulled mine out of the oven the other night, the only “people” that were coming over for dinner were the three little munchkins that were currently running around in my basement making a huge mess!
My daughter LOVED them and ate several. My boys kind of, sort of ate them. They were gone from their plates, but later I found sausage in their bib pockets and pieces of mushrooms on the floor! I loved them, as I expected. It’s probably better that I didn’t make more than I did because I know I would have wanted to eat them all! I had to stop myself from eating too many just so I could make sure there were still some left when my husband got home from work. 🙂
Nothing new or unique with this recipe, but I wanted to share it anyway. It’s one of my favorites and would make for a great holiday appetizer if you’re hosting company. I love serving party food on these Wilton Armetale platters! I received several pieces as wedding gifts almost 10 years ago and they’ve held up beautifully!
*Note: You may notice that my website looks different. I’m in the process of updating it, but with three little kids to take care of all day (and the constant interruptions when I do finally sit down at the computer), it’s a very SLOW process. I recently transferred my blog to a self hosted version of WordPress and I’m looking forward to all of the customization that I’ll now have access to! I’m learning every day how to insert new buttons/links, use code, and change default settings, etc. Because I don’t want to stop publishing posts throughout the process, you’re going to see my page in various states of modifications. (Like my header photo…updating that is one of my first tasks!) Give me time, but eventually I’ll have it looking all nice and fancy! Well, that’s the goal, anyway! 🙂 Thanks for following along!
