"This is definitely the go-to appetizer.I used Panko, half the garlic and added diced red onion and I also used the stems. In the bottom of the cap I sprinkled some parm, added a nice round spoonful of mix and sprayed w/butter and added more cheese. I had mix left over, so I added some cilantro to the mix and filled halves of jalapenos and then wrapped in Bacon. Same mix but 2 flavors! PS I probably should mention I used plain sausage for both."

"These were delicious. I did not discard the mushroom stems though. I chopped them finely and cooked them with the sausage. I wouldn't have had enough filling to fill all the mushrooms enough otherwise. I also used mascarpone cheese instead of cream cheese as that is what I had on hand."
