Last week, my husband and I had an Italian night and one thing we had to have was Stuffed Mushrooms. This time I used Johnsonville’s Sweet Italian Ground Sausage. If you like a spicy kick, try the hot sausage. My husband loves hot sausage, and I am not a spicy fan so we comprised and went with sweet! It was delicious!
We also added marinara to our mushrooms too, I did a few with them and a few without. I actually preferred the ones with the marinara sauce, my husband agreed. Within a few minutes most of these mushrooms were disappearing before my eyes! Next time, I’m going to use hot sausage because I know my husband secretly would love hot sausage!
Let’s get on to this tasty recipe!
Enjoy this delicious appetizer!
