Sausage and Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

November 16, 2016
I have had the pleasure of spending time with Carol from Bluesky Kitchen on several occasions during this past year. 
She is truly a passionate, creative and fabulous Chef who shares her talents on her blog and has a warm heart and giving spirit.
So, when she organized this holiday recipe blog hop which includes 18 bloggers sharing their best recipes, I just knew that I wanted to share one of my favorite appetizers with you.
Things in life were going as planned until we had two grand-babies (girl and boy) born within a very short time of one another and one came a few days early.
Friends from FB, thank you for all of the well wishes!
I am actually writing this and editing some less than perfect photos from Oklahoma.
So, I wrote to Carol and asked her if perhaps I should graciously bow out and she wrote back and said do the best you can!.
(I appreciate you Carol, for being so flexible and understanding)
I know that not everyone likes mushrooms, but if you do you will truly enjoy this appetizer, which 
I have adapted from The Pioneer Woman.
I always rinse my mushrooms and always felt sort of guilty about it because most recipes tell you not to, but when I discovered that The Pioneer Woman does it too, I did a little happy dance in my kitchen!
Pat them dry after a quick cool rinse under the faucet and then let them air dry even more.

While your mushrooms are drying off, brown and crumble up that breakfast sausage.
Place the brown and crumbled sausage on a paper towel cover plate to cool and drain.

Add green onions, garlic and mushroom stems to skillet and cook about a couple of minutes.
Then deglaze pan with Dry White Wine.  All of those goodies from the pan saturate the veggies.
Mix the cream cheese with one egg yolk along with some salt and pepper along with the sausage and vegetable mixture.
Stuff each mushroom with the mixture and create a rounded mound over the top of each mushroom
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
You can tell that this pan has sort of seen better days, but it has a sentimental meaning for me.
This was my Mom's fudge pan and you can see all of the scrapes on it from where she cut the fudge slice over the many years.

Remove stuffed mushrooms from oven and let them set for about 5-10 minutes before serving.

Congrats on the new babies.

  20. Jemma first up congrats on the birth of the grand babies! Blessings for the Holidays. I love mushrooms and will give this recipe a try, but instead use turkey sausage. Jemma I apologize for not visiting all your posts, I seriously need more hours in each day. These mice I write about in my children's books demand most of my time. I am looking forward to all the beauty you share both on IG and your blog for the holidays.

  21. I'm one of the ones that don't like mushrooms, but my sister loves them and makes something similar at Christmas. I'm going to pass this recipe along to her. Thank you!

  25. These are amazing. We have a family member that makes these for every get-together and everyone stands in line and RUSHES when they come out of the oven. lol xo Diana

  26. OOooooo ... these look and sound delicious! I will have to keep this recipe to use at Christmas! I think "Mom's pans" are the best pieces to use when making things for the family. It's like she's right there with you, don't you feel that? I have Mom's mixing bowls, the same ones she used from the time I was a little girl to the time she passed away. I like to think back on all the things we made together when I use those bowls.
    And hey, I've always washed my mushrooms too. Mushrooms are grown directly in manure (not dirt), so, yeah, I'll wash that off as best I can! Congratulations on the new babies! Such exciting happenings :D

  27. Dearest Jemma, good morning my dear! Wow, the preparations are beginning and there is not way that Thanksgiving is around the corner; it just doesn't feel like it! But these appetizers looks wonderful. Mushrooms are among my favorites! Are you well? Much love and wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  28. I love mushrooms, cream cheese and sausage so I'm pretty sure I would love these too! Thanks for sharing Jemma, and huge congrats to you and your growing family!


  29. My mom used to make stuffed mushrooms for every holiday. My husband is a huge fan and now he has taken over the task! Yours look lovely. It is a different recipe than the anchovy and breadcrumb I am used to, but the cream cheese and sausage has got my to pin!

  30. I am so glad you didn't pass on the blog hop, I would have missed these amazing mushrooms! I have a recipe for sausage stuffed mushrooms but there is no cream cheese in it and oh, I am swooning for these! I will be fixing these for my guests for my Christmas Cookie decorating party!

  31. I love your mom's fudge pan so much. <3
