We all like a nice stuffed mushroom. But do you have a recipe for a really good one? Not all stuffed mushrooms are alike. Some just are not fit to eat. But this recipe is one you will keep out during the holidays for sure. If you aren't into Cajun spice, just leave it out and you will still have a delightful Stuffed Mushroom.Stuffed Mushrooms Cajun Style
24 ounces, white button mushrooms
1/3 pound pork sausage (regular or hot)
1/2 medium onion, finely diced
3-4 cloves garlic, finely minced
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tsp. Cajun seasoning (optional)
Garnish with green onions after you bake them. Wipe off or wash mushrooms in cold water. Pop out stems, reserving both parts. Chop mushroom stems finely and set aside. Brown and crumble sausage. Set aside on a plate to cool. Drain most of the oil from the pan. Add onions and garlic to the same skillet; cook for 2 minutes over medium low heat. Add in chopped mushroom stems, stir to cook for 2 minutes. Add Cajun seasoning and stir well. Set mixture aside on a plate to cool.
In a bowl, combine cream cheese, Parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese. Add cooled sausage and cooled mushroom stems. Stir mixture together and refrigerate for a short time to firm up. Smear mixture into the cavity of each mushroom, creating a sizable mound over the top. Sprinkle with buttered bread crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool at least ten minutes before serving; the stuffed mushrooms taste better when not piping hot. Garnish with green onions or fresh parsley. It will make approx 20 mushrooms depending on size of your mushroom.
