Stuffed Mushrooms:

I made these for a fancy potluck dinner and they were delectable.
You need:
1 package cream cheese; softened
handful of green onions; finely sliced
1/4lb sausage, browned
1 tsp chopped garlic
hot sauce

Pull the stems out the mushrooms and chop them finely.
Heat a little butter in a frying pan and saute the chopped stems, onion and sausage with the garlic and pepper.
Once browned and nice put the mixture on a paper towel on a plate to cool.
Mix softened cream cheese with a shake of hot sauce and garlic powder if you want.
Once mushroomy mixture is cooler chuck it in the cream cheese and mix well.
Fill mushroom caps with cream cheese mixture.

Bake in a preheated oven at 400'f for 15-20 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender and clear juices are visable.

You can thicken the mixture by adding some parmesan cheese if you like. I meant to but it turned out fine without.

Tip: Use a cookie scoop to get cheese mixture into mushrooms.

This looks so yummy! Which mushrooms did you use for the recipe? Portabella? Button mushrooms would be too small?

Anyway, I want to make these TODAY!

I've used baby portabellas and big closed cup mushrooms. If it's a decent sized mushroom it'll work. Enjoy!
