  • 1 pound button mushrooms (about 20-24)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage (sweet or spicy)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated (plus more for garnish))
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut off mushroom stems and finely chop. In a large bowl, toss mushroom caps with olive oil and a pinch of salt/pepper, then line them on a lightly sprayed/greased sheet pan (cavity side up).
  • Melt butter in a skillet at medium heat and add chopped mushroom stems and garlic. Cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes until it begins to soften.
  • Add Italian sausage and cook until browned and broken up (about 5 minutes). Drain and discard excess grease. In a bowl, mix sausage with Parmesan, cream cheese, and chopped parsley.
  • Stuff each mushroom cap with sausage mixture and roast in oven for 15-20 minutes until mushrooms are soft and tender. Garnish each stuffed mushroom with extra Parmesan cheese.
