Ingredients

In hot drippings, cook mushroom stems over medium heat until tender, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove skillet from heat, stir in sausage, mozzarella cheese and bread crumbs. Fill mushroom caps with sausage mixture. Place stuffed mushrooms in 15-1/2x10-1/2 jelly-roll pan. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Serve hot. Makes 2-1/2 dozen.
