Total Time 30 minutes
Yield 24 mushrooms

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb ground Italian Sausage
  • 1/2 cup (about 3 ounces) chopped pepperoni (a few extra for the top for looks)
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 24 white button mushrooms, wiped clean and stems removed
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3/4 cup shredded Mozzarella

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or use a mini muffin tin to cook the mushrooms.

  2. In a large skillet, cook the sausage, pepperoni, and the onion over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until the sausage is no longer pink. Drain. Reduce heat to low.

  3. Add the cream cheese, pizza sauce, and oregano to the skillet. Stir and cook until melted. Stir in the Parmesan and remove from the heat. 

  4. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of mixture into each mushroom cap (a cookie dough scoop works well here) and place on baking sheet. 

  5. Bake mushrooms for about 15 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Remove from oven and top the mushrooms with mozzarella and additional chopped pepperoni (for looks) if desired. Return to the oven for 2-4 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Recipe Notes

I like to use a mini muffin tin to bake the mushrooms so that they stay put and so that the liquid that is released when cooked is gathered at the bottom of the muffin tin.

I like to use the mini pepperoni for looks and ease!
