Savory Stuffed Mushrooms

For our enrichment last night we were challenged to bring a recipe that was made with five items or less. That was a little bit harder than I thought it would be. Anyway, I found this.


12 large mushrooms or about 20 smaller ones
6 oz. mild sausage
3 Tbs. seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 teas. dried parsley

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet. Remove and chop mushroom stems, reserving caps.
Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat; add sausage. Cook until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes; drain. Stir in chopped mushroom stems, bread crumbs, and 1/4 cup mozzarella into skillet. Remove from heat. Spoon sausage mixture into mushroom caps. Arrange stuffed mushrooms on prepared baking sheet. Top mushrooms with remaining mozzarella. Bake about 15 minutes. Place on a serving platter and garnish with parsley.

* For extra cheese flavor, add 3 Tbs. grated parmesan cheese to the filling. I didn't do this because then it would be 6 ingredients and that is unacceptable! =)
