Sausage & Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

My longtime family friend Kathy is an amazing cook. She has a real gift and whenever my family gets word that Kathy’s doing the cooking for a get-together, there is 100% attendance (no small feat). A long time ago I remember Kathy making these amazing stuffed mushrooms, and marveling at its paucity of ingredients. Technically, just three.

Three. Ingredients.

The simplicity of this recipe belies an absolute flavor taste explosion of umami. These work great at adult parties paired with wine, but kids love ’em too! Try variations on this recipe by adding bacon bits or garlic to the mixture!

There’s really no excuse not to try this amazing recipe – great for hors d’oeuvres or a potluck PTA meeting. Thanks for the recipe, Kathy!

    Don’t wash the mushrooms, just brush them off. This will prevent the shrooms from over-absorbing all the water…

    i’m fixin’ to make these bad boys, got all the exact ingredients, except for a couple of minor details. Since me and my husband both like “Spicy”!! I bought the “Hot” sausage, and plan on mincing up some jalapeno and/or habanero peppers into the mix, maybe sprinkle a little mozzarella and Italian bread crumbs on top! sounds good, doesn’t it?stay tuned for the final verdict!

    I know this is an old post, but I was recently at a customer’s house and they were making stuffed mushrooms. I have a wildlife removal business and the entire time I was working in their attic, the amazing smell of mushrooms filled the air! My wife and I were hunting for recipes and came across yours… thanks for sharing!
