Ingredients and Substitutions
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for stuffed portobello mushroom sausage, what each ingredient does in the recipe, and substitution options.For measurements see Recipe card below.
- portobello mushrooms – Look for portobello mushroom caps that are firm and have a smooth surface. This stuffed portobello mushroom recipe was originally developed with large mushrooms, but when I took these photos I only had medium mushrooms and they turned out great. They may be more or less depending on the size you use.If you want to turn it into a appetizeryou can use cremini mushrooms instead and adjust the baking time.
- olive oil – For brushing on mushrooms before grilling. You can use any heat-resistant oil, such as avocado oil.
- Italian sausage – Ground sausage adds a rich flavor to the stuffing, but you can substitute ground turkey, ground chicken, or ground beef.If you do this, I recommend adding 1-2 tsp italian seasoning Adds more flavor to the meat as these are not seasoned like sausage.
- grated cheese – I used pepper jack cheese for a spicy kick, but you can use mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan, or Monterey jack cheese for a milder flavor.
- italian tomato sauce – I like to do it myself Sugar-free Manala Sauce When I have time, but you can also use store bought ones.
- fresh basil – Add herb flavor to portobello stuffed mushrooms. Feel free to use other fresh herbs such as fresh parsley, thyme or oregano. You can also substitute 1 tablespoon dried basil for the 1/4 cup fresh basil in this recipe.
- garlic – Fresh garlic always tastes best, but you can use 1 tsp canned minced garlic To save time, or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder If you don’t have any other type.
- sea salt and black pepper – You can also add a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes if you want extra heat.
Variations: add onions or bell peppers!
I kept this stuffed portobello mushroom recipe simple with as few ingredients as possible, but the onions and bell peppers are a great addition to the filling. Before cooking the sausages, dice them and sauté them in olive oil. (Alternatively, you can mix the rest together caramelized onions If you have one. )
How to Make Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
This section shows how to make Sausage Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, with step-by-step photos and detailed information about the technique to help you visualize it.For full instructions, including quantities and temperatures, see Recipe card below.
- Grilled Mushrooms. Line a Baking pan Cover with parchment paper, foil or Silicone pad. Remove the stems from the mushroom caps, place them on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Bake the portobello mushrooms right side up until tender.
Tip: No need to scrape the gills.
Some people like to scrape the gills off the mushrooms – you can do that if you prefer. I think they are delicious and definitely not worth the extra work to remove.
- Brown the meat. Meanwhile, add the sausage to the pan and cook frying pan Heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned. (You can add oil to the pan if desired, but I don’t find it necessary since the sausage will release fat as it cooks.)
- Make the filling. Reduce heat to medium. Add minced garlic and saute until fragrant. Add tomato paste, basil, sea salt, and black pepper and cook until hot.
- Stuff in portobello mushrooms. Drain or drain excess liquid from mushroom caps. Fill portobellos with filling mixture. Top with chopped cheese.
