  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Remove stems from mushrooms; place caps in a greased 15x10x1-in. pan. Finely chop stems; wrap in paper towels and squeeze to remove moisture.

  3. Mix sausage, parsley and onion mixture; spoon into mushroom caps. Mix bread crumbs and cheese; sprinkle over tops. Dot with remaining butter.
  4. Bake until sausage is cooked through, 15-20 minutes, basting occasionally with pan juices. If desired, top with green onions. Yield: 12 servings.

"I thought these were really good but was a bit leery of the uncooked sausage. So I browned it lightly first. Family liked them too, except for the non-shroom ones. Nice seasoning, not too salty or strong-flavored. Italian sausage might be nice for those who like things a bit bolder; might try that next time."

"These are delicious if you don't overcook them in the oven. I will definitely cook the sausage ahead of time because the first time I made them I baked them too long."

"Hi Pepsi31,

Cooking the sausage ensures that the mushrooms won't overcook in the oven."

"I have a question, I know the recipe does not mention it, but is it really not necessary to cook the sausage before stuffing the mushrooms"

"I used portabello mushroom caps and served these as an entree, with hollandaise sauce drizzled over the top. They were a huge hit."

"I'm thinking I would like to make this for a holiday gathering Hi flageolet, I would very much like to know the brand of sausage did you incorporate , was the Parmesan a quality aged like Asiago d'Allevo and what brand of bread crumbs did you used for this recipe?

Thanks in advance:)"

"This recipe is wonderful and easy to follow. I used large portabella caps w/green onions and used sage sausage...NUMMY!! I was always intimated by recipies I've never tried before, but find you learn by trying!!"

"I made this tonite - delicious! Not that difficult to follow, and anyone that can cook should be flexible enough to adjust the recipe as needed.

I would try using baby ports the next time as opposed to smaller white mushrooms.
BTW, I can't believe that people would spend the T&E to bash other peoples' opinion regarding a recipe. Sorry it didn't work for them, but based on what I've read it worked for you. Get a life!"

"I haven't tried this yet, but I can tell it will be great. I do have a thought, or maybe a question. Is there a reason not to cook the sausage and combine with the other ingredients prior to stuffing the 'shrooms? I wouldn't cook the sausage dry, but this should shorten the final cooking time, and save time when you are ready to get 'em out."
