One of my favorite appetizers that are big hit are stuffed mushrooms with Italian sausage! I have made this with both sweet and hot ground Italian sausage if you want a little kick.

Start off by coring washing the mushroom heads with a spoon. I put some of the insides to the side to use for the stuffing.

Pat dry with paper towels.

Chop up 1/2 an onion and sauté with the mushroom steams for 10 minutes with 3 cloves of crushed garlic.

Add the ground Italian sausage and cook for 10 minutes until browned.

Add 1/2 a cup of bread crumbs and 1/2 package of cream cheese. Cook for another 5 minutes stirring.

Stuff the mushroom heads using a spoon and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

They are so good as an appetizer, my guests always love them! Serve with a spoon to get all the juices!
