"These are a great party treat. Always gets raves."
1-1/2 pounds medium-size mushrooms (about 30)
1 package (8 ounces) brown-and-serve sausage
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
About 1 hour before serving: Remove stems from mushrooms; chop stems. Set caps and stems aside.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a 10-inch skillet, cook chopped sausage over medium heat until well browned. With slotted spoon,
remove sausage and drain on paper towel.
Keep 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet. 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.
