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.
