It is common to see sausage stuffed mushrooms on the menu at upscale restaurants. But you can easily make these at home.  And they are every bit as good as the ones that you would find in fancy eateries.

They are great to make as an appetizer for holiday entertaining! And they can be adapted easily for different dietary needs too!

I had wanted to make these for a while but didn’t have an excuse.  But they are so delightfully yummy that I sometimes make them as a meal…just because I can! Make these for your next holiday party or potluck and they are guaranteed to go fast!

Most stuffed mushrooms recipes call for breadcrumbs.  I’ve opted to use almond meal instead to make this gluten and grain-free! Of course, you always have the option to use wheat-based breadcrumbs, or gluten-free breadcrumbs. So you have options! And options are your friend!

While this recipe calls for 12 large mushrooms, you can use 24 small ones as well, for a bite-sized appetizer.

Most typical stuffed mushrooms call for ground pork sausage. And while you can use the pork, I use ground turkey sausage. It gives me the same great taste, but it works better for my body. Use what works best for you!
