Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms – Holiday Appetizers

I love appetizer parties – especially around the holidays. There is so much decadent food and appetizers give you that perfect bite. I love just having a taste of lots of different foods food. These Sausauge Stuffed Mushrooms are the perfect bite in my world. They combine the deep earthiness of the mushroom with slightly spicy sausage and the richness of cream cheese. Delicious!

In a food processor add 1 cup of the mushroom stems and pulse several times to chop. Don’t have one? I use the Cuisinart Food Processor and love it. Christmas is coming – better add it to your list!
