Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms Party Appetizer

I love mushrooms, but nobody else at my house likes them, so I have to either make a small batch of these, or cook them for a party appetizer. If you have a food processor, you can put all the ingredients in and pulse for a minute to chop everything finely instead of manually.

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

1 pound (about 24) large white mushrooms
4 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped or 1 tsp dried
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped or 1 tsp dried
1/2 pound sausage
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tsp ground red pepper
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese, grated

Wipe the mushrooms clean with a damp paper towel and remove the stems. Place the mushroom caps on a shallow baking dish.

Cook the sausage, breaking up into small pieces as it cooks. Drain oil from sausage (I usually just put it on a paper towel).

Mince the stems. Combine all the ingredients with the sausage in a small bowl and mix well.

Spoon the mixture into the mushroom caps and bake in a preheated 350° oven for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
