Baked Stuffed Mushrooms

Serves 24

Prep time: 35 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes


  • 24 large fresh white mushrooms, cleaned (1 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 pound Italian sausage, removed from casing
  • 1/2 cup sliced scallions
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (2 teaspoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 1/2 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons), divided
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


1. Heat oven to 400F. Remove stems from mushrooms, finely chop stems to equal 1/2 cup (reserve the rest for another use). Place mushroom caps in a bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of oil. Arrange caps, gills up, on a shallow baking pan.

2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a small skillet set over medium heat. Add sausage, scallions, garlic, Italian seasoning, and chopped mushroom stems. Cook, stirring and breaking sausage into smaller pieces until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add 1/2 cup of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese; stir just until cheeses melt.

3. Stuff mushroom caps with sausage mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons mozzarella. Bake until cheese has melted and mushrooms are tender’ 12 to 15 minutes.
