  • 10 large stuffing mushrooms
  • 1 Italian sausage link I used Jennie-O Italian Turkey Sausage
  • 2 Tbsp. onion minced
  • 2 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 2 Tbsp. green pepper minced
  • 2 Tbsp. pizza sauce
  • 1/2 c. finely shredded mozzarella cheese at room temperature


  1. Wash mushrooms and remove stems; place on baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Remove sausage from casing. Cook sausage and onion in a frying pan, crumbling sausage with a spatula, until it is cooked through.
  3. Remove from heat. Add cream cheese, green pepper, and pizza sauce and stir well to combine.
  4. Fill each mushroom cap with cream cheese/sausage mixture. Divide filling equally - caps should be completely full and slightly mounded.
  5. Top each mushroom cap with 2-3 tsp. shredded mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
  7. *Note: mushrooms will be juicy....you may want a plate!
