stuffed mushrooms

Whenever I think Super Bowl… I think sausage cream cheese stuffed mushrooms. It just became an annual event in our home. My kids (minus one who absolutely hates… I.Mean.Hates mushrooms) love this appetizer and always request it. It’s so easy and is a huge YUM!

Ingredients:

  • button mushrooms ( approximately 24)

  • 16 oz package of mild pork sausage
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1-2 tsp minced garlic

stuffed mushrooms ingredients

Remove stems from mushrooms ( I use a spoon) and finely chop both stems and parsley. Spray sauté pan with Pam and lightly brown chopped mushrooms, garlic and parsley. In a larger pan brown sausage until crumbly. Add mushroom mixture and cream cheese to sausage over medium heat. Mix thoroughly (cream cheese should become quite soft as you mix it with the sausage mixture).
