24 large white button mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed
4 oz (113g) cream cheese, softened (you can use a dairy-free alternative for a dairy-free version)
1/4 cup cooked and crumbled sausage (use a low-carb or turkey sausage for a leaner option)
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or dairy-free alternative)
Salt and black pepper to taste
Olive oil for brushing
1. Preheat the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
2. Prepare the Mushrooms:
Clean the mushrooms and remove the stems. Use a spoon to carefully hollow out each mushroom cap to make room for the stuffing. Set the mushroom caps aside.
3. Prepare the Filling:
In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, crumbled sausage, chopped fresh parsley, diced red bell peppers, minced garlic, and grated Parmesan cheese (or dairy-free alternative). Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
Taste the filling and season with salt and black pepper according to your preference. The sausage and Parmesan cheese add some saltiness, so adjust as needed.
5. Fill the Mushrooms:
Take each mushroom cap and generously fill it with the cream cheese and sausage mixture, mounding it slightly.
6. Arrange and Brush:
Place the stuffed mushrooms on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops of the stuffed mushrooms lightly with olive oil.
Bake the stuffed mushrooms in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is golden and slightly bubbly.
Remove the stuffed mushrooms from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
