This stuffed mushrooms with sausage recipe is super easy to make and a great appetizer for any gathering.

Using fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles really saves time but doesn’t sacrifice the taste of these wonderful vessels of deliciousness!

Stuffed Mushrooms with Sausage

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, for the next football game on TV, 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 with sausage totally fits the bill.

At 8 grams of protein per serving, this is a healthy, fill-you-up kind of appetizer.

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 the already crumbled goat cheese instead of buying it whole and crumbling it myself.
