ItaIian Sausage Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

  • Author: Liz
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4-6 mushroom caps 1x


Sweet Italian sausage is the star of this recipe, however you can use hot italian sausage if you prefer more Zing.  This makes a great side dish, or can be a meal in itself.


  • 2 TBL olive oil
  • 46 portobello mushroom caps
  • 2 sweet (or hot) italian sausages, casings removed
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 10-oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 TBL stir-in garlic paste
  • 1 cup Panko
  • 1 TBL black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • red or green bell pepper strips for garnish, optional


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan; add the chopped onions and saute until soft.
  2. Add the italian sausages to the pan and break the meat up with a wooden spoon or spatula. Saute the meat until browned and cooked through.
  3. Clean the portobello mushrooms using a dry cloth.  Remove the stem.  Spray some Pam or other cooking spray inside the caps and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, stir very well and allow the flavors to meld for a few minutes.  Allow the mixture to cool slightly.
  5. Fill each mushroom cap with the prepared filling.  If there is filling left over, eat it :).
  6. Bake the mushrooms in a preheated 325 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Enjoy!


The second time I whipped these up, I had no onions left, so I added some onion powder.  No one noticed a difference!  It pays to buy the best italian sausage you can.  Certain brand names that I won’t mention but start with the word Johnsonville are not the best choice.
