This Easy Mushroom Appetizer With Cream Cheese And Sausage is a must have for any party. You make it ahead and heat it up for about 30 minutes depending on the size of the mushrooms you decide to purchase. You fry the sausage ahead of time, drain it and add one eight oz cream cheese. Easy Appetizer! You scoop the sausage and cream cheese mixture in the washed uncooked mushrooms after removing the stems. You can chop the stems and cook them with the sausage, if you desire, before adding the cream cheese. It makes the mixture go a little further. This recipe comes from my sister-in-law, Linda. She has made these for probably 40 years! Love these!

You can eat these with a fork or eat them as a finger food. I could only get large mushrooms the day I decided to make these, so I only made 15 large mushrooms filled with the cream cheese sausage filling mixture. My favorite sausage is Jimmy Dean Maple uncooked sausage in a tube. Fabulous! If you can get the smaller sized mushrooms you should be able to fill about 24-30 mushrooms. Yummy! Trust me, you will not have any of these appetizers leftover……enjoy!

      Carrie, that’s so funny because I think the original recipe called for Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage! My daughter changed the flavor one year and it has stuck with us! I love the sage flavor as well! Happy holidays! Hugs! Linda
