Stuffed Mushrooms, Jimmy Dean Style
I’m always looking for good looking, healthy recipes to try out. I get bored with the same old, hum drum recipes. I found this recipe in All You Magazine and ripped it out to put with my grocery shopping list. Then, when the opportunity came up for me to work with the Mom It Forward Blogger Network, I knew it was the perfect time to use this recipe!
Nowadays, finding good sources of protein for my family is so important. My husband, son, and I are working on limiting our carbs and sugars and increasing our protein. This recipe for Stuffed Mushrooms, Jimmy Dean Style totally fits the bill. At 8 grams of protein per serving, this is a healthy, fill-you-up kind of appetizer.

After loading my coupon for Jimmy Dean Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Crumbles onto my Just For U account, I went to Safeway to get it, along with my other ingredients. I altered All You’s recipe a little bit to make prep time quicker and easier. Instead of using ground turkey, I used the Jimmy Dean Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Crumbles. My hubby loves anything that involves sausage, so I knew he’d love this recipe. I also chose to buy from Safeway the already crumbled goat cheese instead of buying it whole and crumbling it myself.
So here is my recipe for Stuffed Mushrooms, Jimmy Dean Style:
