Ingredients

  • 18 large mushrooms, wiped clean with a damp paper towel
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces mild or hot Italian sausage
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 cup herb stuffing mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Remove the stems from the mushrooms and finely chop them. (I cut off and discard the very end of the stem.)
  • Place mushroom caps hollow side up on prepared baking sheet.
  • Add olive oil to a nonstick pan and place over medium heat. Add sausage, mushroom stems, and onion. Cook, using a wooden spoon to break sausage into small pieces, until sausage is cooked through.
  • Add garlic and cook 1 minute.
  • Remove pan from heat and let mixture cool.
  • Stir in mayonnaise, stuffing mix, pepper, and cheese.
  • Place a heaping spoonful of filling into each mushroom cap.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley

Notes

Tip: Unless the mushrooms are really dirty, don't rinse them. Just wipe them with a damp paper towel.
