Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms | Carrie's Experimental Kitchen #appetizer
I know. You’re probably thinking, “Another mushroom recipe?”. What can I say, I just LOVE mushrooms, especially when they are stuffed with all kinds of goodness! So since today is National Mushroom Day, I thought it fitting to share these Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms I made on Easter.
Well, at least one of these crazy food calendars says it is and who am I to argue?! 🙂 These are my absolute favorite way to stuff them (though my other versions were pretty tasty too!). ~Enjoy!

    These look delicious. I think I will try them with Italian Chicken Sausages and the small Portobello mushrooms (Baby Bellas). YUM!!

    Your ingredients call for breadcrumbs and in the instructions you say panko. Which did you use. Also, you mention the Romano in the instructions, but not the Asiago.

      Hi Betty, I apologize for the confusion and have updated the recipe. You can use either Italian breadcrumbs or Panko breadcrumbs (your preference) and add the Asiago cheese when you add the Pecorino Romano cheese.
