Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

We have enjoyed Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms on both trips to Johnsonville. They are the perfect appetizer for a holiday party or special occasion.

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

We love to serve these on game day too! We actually made these at the Johnsonville test kitchen on one of our trips and immediately fell in love with them. They have a great flavor and are affordable to make too.

This is actually a hearty recipe that is perfect for parties because the mushrooms are filling. Growing up my Mom always made stuffed mushrooms for parties so for me this recipe takes me back to my childhood. I have fond memories of enjoyed Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms at New Years Eve and other family parties.  If you are a fan of mushrooms and sausage this is a really flavorful recipe.  You can easily make it gluten free when you use gluten free bread crumbs.

They are best when made fresh but I have enjoyed them as leftovers. I simply re-heat in the oven when I have leftovers. Serve these for a holiday party, game day or as a dinner entrée. You can easily use a nice portabella mushroom and turn this into a delicious dinner. I hope you enjoy Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms as much as we do. They are always a crowd pleaser when we serve them.
