Stuffed Mushrooms

These mushrooms are one of the things I brought for Thanksgiving dinner this year and they turned out really well. Sorry I don't have a picture, but this year's craft was really fun and cute. I can't take credit-- my sister-in-law thought this one up. It's just crackers, pretzels, olives, triangular cheddar cheese all held together with spray cheese.


At least 20 whole mushrooms
1/4 lb sausage
1-2 green onions
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Clean mushroom and carefully break off stems. Chop stems fine, discarding the tough end.

Cook sausage in skillet. Add garlic and chopped mushroom stems. Fry until no moisture remains. Set aside to cool.

When the garlic mixture is no longer hot, stir in cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, onions (finely chopped), black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Mixture should be very thick. Using a little spoon, fill each mushroom cap with a generous amount of stuffing. Arrange the mushroom caps on prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the mushroom are hot and liquid starts to form under caps.

I feel like we kind of skipped over Thanksgiving. I am so glad you mentioned some things you did for it. The Cracker Turkey is a great idea!
