These savory stuffed mushrooms have been a huge hit with family and friends in Belleville, Michigan for years, says Amy Prey. For a little less heat, substitute a milder sausage and different cheese for the pepper Jack.

"These were very good. I didn't have enough pepper jack so I used 1/2 pepper jack and 1/2 cheddar. Next time I'll make sure I have the pepper jack since the cheddar melted faster and cooked more."
