  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 16 medium button or cremini mushrooms, stems detached and minced
  • 1 pat butter
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • Dash of dried thyme
  • Black pepper, freshly cracked
  • 1 cup Morning Star Farms vegetarian breakfast sausage crumbles (thawed or frozen)
  • 12 Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese or Parmesan

Step by Step:

  1. Toss mushroom caps in a thin, steady drizzle of olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Over medium heat, sauté the shallot and minced mushroom stems in butter until soft. Add in the thyme, pepper, and sausage and sauté just until hot.
  3. Remove from heat and add cracker crumbs, then stir in cheese and mix to melt. Stuff mushroom caps with this mixture and set in fridge for up to 6 hours until ready to bake or bake immediately.
  4. Bake in a pre-heated oven, at 400°F until mushrooms are soft, about 20 minutes.
