Looking for a great low point appetizer for your upcoming Super Bowl party? These Creamy Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are the perfect dish!

How do I make these Creamy Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms?

For these sausage stuffed mushrooms I like to use mild Italian turkey or chicken sausage. The reason I use the mild is because not everyone loves the heat of a spicy sausage. I also love using chicken sausage since it is lower points in comparison to turkey sausage. It’s 7 points for 1 pound as compared to 20 points for 1 pound of the Jennie-o lean turkey sausage. The point value if you use the lean turkey sausage is 1 point per mushroom or 4 mushrooms for 5 Freestyle smart points. 

You can use white mushrooms or I like to use Crimini mushrooms ( I get mine at Trader Joe’s ) that are golden in color and have a nice flavor to them. They are not always easy to find so if you can not locate them at your local grocery store, you can use the large white mushrooms as an alternative. 

Place a mushroom in your palm, cap side down. Use a spoon to scoop out the stem, leaving a hole in the cap for stuffing.

Using a knife dice up the stems and set aside.

Spray a skillet with non stick cooking spray.

Cook the turkey sausage until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes, using a fork to crumble the sausage into small pieces.

Add the minced garlic, onion salt, and stir until well combined. Add the minced mushroom stems and cook until tender.

Transfer the sausage mixture to a mixing bowl.

Add the bread crumbs, skim milk, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and parsley to the bowl.

Stir until well combined

Add cream cheese and mix until all ingredients have been incorporated. 

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place the mushroom caps. Flip them so the hole is facing up.

Using a spoon, add about 1 Tbsp mixture into each mushroom.

Bake the mushrooms for 20-22 minutes, or until golden.

Notes: These stuffed mushrooms taste best when served warm.
