  • 48 medium-sized mushrooms
  • 1 pound ground sausage (sage)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • Fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Begin by wiping off the mushrooms with a damp towel.
  2. Remove the stems to create a cavity for stuffing.
  3. Chop the stems into small pieces and set aside.
  4. Lightly brown the ground sausage. Add the chopped mushroom stems and cook until soft.
  5. The sausage is done when there is no longer any pink in the meat.
  6. Cut the cream cheese block into about 8 pieces. Turn the heat to low and add the cream cheese, stirring until it’s incorporated (melted) into the sausage.
  7. Optional: Add ½ teaspoon Kahuna Garlic Salt Spice Blend or your favorite seasoning. Any garlic salt will do, but this blend is recommended. Stir well.
  8. Fill the hole of each mushroom with a large tablespoon of sausage mix, rounding it on top. Ensure all the mushrooms are filled, and add more until they are all topped with a good amount of sausage.
  9. The goal is to have mushrooms just soft, but not too dried out.
  10. Bake at 350º for about 30 minutes, or until the mushrooms have softened. Serve warm, but they are good at room temperature too.
  11. Optional: Sprinkle with a little fresh parsley.


  • When cleaning the mushrooms, avoid letting them sit in water as they will absorb it. Instead, use a damp paper towel to gently remove any dirt.
  • For preparing ahead, make the sausage mixture the day before and refrigerate. Fill the mushrooms when ready to bake or refrigerate filled mushrooms until ready to bake.
