These Parmesan and Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are the crowd-pleasing appetizers that will be the star of all your holiday parties.



  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 pounds (24 ounces) large button mushrooms
  • 1 pound bulk mild Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, plus more for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Wash the mushrooms and remove and reserve the stems, trimming the bottoms if needed. Dice the mushroom stems.
  3. Using clean hands, mix the diced mushroom stems, sausage, cheese, garlic, sage, and parsley until thoroughly combined.
  4. Overfill each mushroom cap with the sausage mixture, mounding a pile on top. Arrange the mushrooms on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the sausage is browned on top and cooked through. Sprinkle with additional parsley and serve hot.


  • To make meatballs using any remaining filling, divide the sausage mixture into balls and sauté over medium-high heat in a little olive oil until browned on all sides. Drop the meatballs into a pot of hot tomato sauce and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Feel free to substitute hot Italian sausage if you like things spicy!
