A simple mixture of sausage and cream cheese is stuffed into mushroom caps, topped with shredded cheese and baked to golden brown perfection.Sausage and cream cheese makes a yummy filling, but I like to add a sauteed onion and fresh garlic for a bit more flavor. Sage sausage is delicious in this too.
A delicious variation is to wrap the stuffed mushrooms with a piece of partially cooked bacon. Yowzers! Maybe only enjoy one of these.
Once the mushrooms are topped with cheese and/or wrapped in bacon they go into a hot oven and bake until the mushrooms soften and the cheese browns.
I never have any of these leftover when I take them to parties. There's just something so tasty about a stuffed mushroom.
