  • 1lb mushrooms, stems removed & reserved
  • mushroom stems, diced
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 lb ground Italian Sausage
  • 1/4 cup onions, diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 oz (~ 1/2  cup) Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 1 oz ( ~ 1/4 cup) Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped as garnish
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Remove the stem from mushrooms, dice stems only, and set aside.  Lightly oil a small baking dish and add the whole mushrooms in a single tight layer, cavity facing up.
  • Bring a large pan on the stovetop to medium high heat, add a little oil to lightly cover the pan (~ 2 tsp) and add sausage, onions, and mushroom stems.  Break up sausage with back of spoon or fork and cook ~ 7-10 minutes or until cooked through.   Add garlic and cook 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.  Reduce heat to low and add bread crumbs, both cheeses, salt and pepper.  Stir together and remove from heat when cheese is melted.
  • Spoon a bit of the mixture into each mushroom.  Bake uncovered ~ 40-45 minutes or until stuffing is browned and crusty.  Add sea salt to taste and sprinkle with parsley.  Happy Eating!  Beckie


  • Pulverize older bread in a food processor if you don’t want to buy bread crumbs.  We always save our old bread in the freezer for this reason.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • Cheese grater – the 6 sides give you lots of options for slicing, shredding, or grating vegetables and cheeses.
