A stuffed mushroom recipe with cheese, sausage, and weed
Mushrooms just don’t get enough credit, as they make the most nutritious addition to almost any meal, but some people have trouble with finding enjoyment in their lack of flavor, which is why stuffing them with a flavorful meat like sausage alongside a hearty helping of dairy with cheese and sour cream is a staple in both restaurants and at the kitchen table.
Variations to choose from
This particular stuffed mushroom recipe is simple and straightforward, using sausage slices for the smokey taste, but this isn't the only combination that’s possible. In fact, you could try chicken, hamburger, pork, egg, or a meat alternative such as tofu to create your very own personalized version designed to get all of your tastebuds jumping.
An easy stuffed mushrooms recipe
These stuffed mushrooms look really fancy when they’re done, which will give you plenty of kitchen cred, and they’re actually incredibly easy to make, as it’s really just a few simple layers and there’s no wrong way to put them together. Once the stuffed mushrooms are heated and baked to perfection, they’ll have a soft, chewy center that will melt in your mouth and a crispy outer crust of perfectly browned melted cheese, a texture that will change significantly with cooling, so this dish is best served hot and fresh from the oven.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6 (2 stuffed mushrooms each)
- 12 large white mushrooms
- 12 thin slices of processed cheese (any kind)
- ¾ pound of sausage
- 5 ounces shredded cheese (any flavor)
- 5 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
- 1 ½ teaspoons cannabutter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Mixing bowl
- Wooden spoon
- Baking pan
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
The first thing that you’ll need to do is prepare the mushroom caps to be stuffed, which means removing the stems with a sharp knife and using a large teaspoon to scoop out a pocket in the middle to fill.
If you’re using ground sausage, then it can be tossed into the mixing bowl as is, but if you’re using sausage links, then you’ll need to remove the outer casing to expose the ground pork inside.
Add a pinch of salt and pepper to the sausage and mix it in well.
Dump the sausage into a saucepan that is set to medium heat along with the cannabutter.
Cook the ground pork for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the breadcrumbs and the shredded cheese to the saucepan and mix the ingredients together before removing them from the heat.
Line up the mushroom caps on a baking sheet and then fill each one with a fair portion of the bread crumb, cheese, and sausage filling.
Once the caps are all full, use the sliced cheese to seal each one.
Pop the stuffed mushrooms into the oven to bake for 20 minutes.
Once complete add any topping of choice.
