Recipe: Stuffed Mushrooms

04 March 2012

Lately I've been obsessed with all things 'Stuffed Mushrooms' from crab to veggies to sausage, they just don't get old, and being that it's one of a few things that both kids will eat it's a major win. So when my mom handed me this recipe a few weeks ago, I couldn't of been more excited. Mmmm..

Stuffed Mushrooms 
(Serves 4-5)
2 Packages Baby Bella Mushrooms (stems set aside and diced)
1 1/2 Cups Chicken Sausage
1/2 Cup Diced Onion
3-4 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
1 Pkg. Cream Cheese
2 Tbsp. Panko Bread Crumbs
1 Egg
1/3 Cup White Wine or Vegetable Broth (I've tried both, and love.)
3/4 Cups Parmesan Cheese
Preheat oven to 350˚ F. 

Brown Sausage in large skillet, and set aside in a bowl. 
Next, combine onions and garlic in the same skillet and cook for about 2 minutes. Add wine (or broth) and deglaze pan, allow all liquid to evaporate. Add diced mushroom stems and panko, stir for 2 minutes, set aside and let cool. 
In a bowl, mix egg, cream cheese and parmesan cheese. Add cooled sausage and mushroom stem mixture. 
 With a spoon (or hand*) dollop a hearty portion into each mushroom cavity, allowing it to overflow. 
 Bake for 25 mins, or until golden brown. Let cool and serve warm (not hot).
