Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms

12 to 15 large fresh mushrooms

2 Tbsp. butter, divided

2 Tbsp. chopped onion

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

¼ tsp. dried basil

Salt and pepper to taste

4 oz. bulk Italian sausage

2 Tbsp. dry bread crumbs

2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese


Remove stem from the mushrooms.  Chop stems finely; set mushroom caps aside.  Place stems in pepper towels and squeeze to remove any liquid.

In a large skillet, heat 1 ½ tablespoon butter.  Cook stems and onion until tender.  Add the lemon juice, basil, salt and pepper; cook until almost all the liquid has evaporated.  Cool.

In a large bowl, combine the mushroom mixture, sausage and parsley; stuff reserved mushroom caps.  Combine crumbs and cheese; sprinkle over tops.  Dot each with remaining butter.

Place in a greased baking pan.  Bake at 400 F. for 20 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, basting occasionally with pan juices.  Serve hot.           12-15 servings
