How to Prepare and Clean Mushrooms

Mushrooms often carry a bit of grit from growing close to the ground, so they should be cleaned carefully to maintain their integrity. The best method is to lightly wipe each one with a damp paper towel. Avoid rinsing them directly under water, as mushrooms can absorb water and become soggy. For preparing, simply twist off or cut the stems close to the cap to prepare them for stuffing.

Creating Baby Bella Sausage Caps

The filling is a rich blend of cream cheese, cooked sausage, and spices, with parmesan and mozzarella cheeses for added depth and creaminess. Once the mushrooms are stuffed, they are baked until the filling is hot and the cheese on top is melted and slightly golden, creating a mouthwatering appetizer that’s hard to resist.

  • Baby Bella Mushrooms: 16 ounces, whole

Cooking the Filling:

  1. Fill each mushroom cap generously with the sausage and cheese mixture.
  2. Place the stuffed mushrooms in a clean cast iron skillet or a baking dish.
  3. Top each with a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella.
