Savory Stuffed Mushrooms
To save time, microwave the Savory Stuffed Mushrooms. Use a microwave-safe plate instead of a baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
12 large mushrooms
6 oz mild or hot sausage
3 Tbsp seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
2 tsp dried parsley
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a large baking sheet. Remove and chop mushroom stems, reserving caps.
Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat; add sausage. Cook until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes; drain. Stir mushroom stems, crumbs and 1/4 cup mozzarella into skillet.
Remove skillet from heat. Spoon sausage mixture into mushroom caps. Arrange stuffed mushrooms on prepared baking sheet.
Top mushrooms with remaining mozzarella. Bake until stuffing is hot, about 15 minutes. Place on a serving platter. Garnish with parsley.
Savory Stuffed Mushrooms tip: Do not throw out mushrooms that are just past peak freshness. Chop into small pieces. Cook with a little butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Use them in a variety of stuffings or casserole dishes.
