Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

These Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are a super versatile recipe!

I have made many substitutions over the years, and they're always delicious, Here are some substitution suggestions:

  • Instead of Italian Sausage, substitute any seasoned ground sausage
  • Instead of baby bella mushrooms, use traditional white mushrooms
  • Instead of panko breadcrumbs, use traditional italian style breadcrumbs
  • Instead of cream cheese, use Boursin cheese 
Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

Traditionally, these Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are baked in the oven.

But, they can also be cooked in the air fryer or on the grill! 

  • For Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms, air fry at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. 
  • For Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms, place stuffed mushrooms in an aluminum pan. Grill over low heat for 15-20 minutes.

Anytime you make stuffed mushrooms, you have the option to use the removed stems! Just dice them up and add them to the sausage and cream cheese mixture. 

If you need more delicious appetizer recipes to serve with these stuffed mushrooms with cream cheese, I have some suggestions!

I hope that you enjoy this Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms recipe! If you make it, let me know in the comments!
