Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers.  It’s funny though, because there was a time when I thought mushrooms were gross!  So glad my tastes have changed.

If I had my way with dinner, it would just be appetizers…well for at least a couple of nights a week.  Then I’d probably miss real dinners, but for now, I could definitely use more nights with appetizers!

What ingredients do I need for stuffed mushrooms?

These stuffed mushrooms are made with pork breakfast sausage.  You can use homemade sausage or your favorite from the store.   You also need mushrooms, panko bread crumbs, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and sherry.

If you use large button mushrooms, you will need 24 mushrooms.  For a party, I like to use smaller mushrooms.

They are easier to eat as finger food and guest can just pop them into their mouths. If you use smaller mushrooms, you will want to buy more.  They don’t hold as much stuffing, so it goes much further.

The stuffed mushrooms can be made ahead of time and then just bake when you need them.  Super duper, easy peasy!

    These look fabulous! Just so I am understanding correctly- you chop the stems and add the stems to the stuffing, correct?

      Yes, that is correct. You could leave them out if you wanted, but I like to add them in. It adds extra flavor and moisture to the filing.

    I love stuffed mushrooms, but although I’ve stuffed in at least a dozen different ways, I’ve never stuffed them with meat. It is time to change that, yours look so delicious.

    You are speaking my language with these. Whenever I’m at a restaurant and I see stuffed mushrooms on the appetizer list, I have to get them. These look so good!
