No party appetizer could be easier, or get people more excited, than stuffed mushrooms. My maternal grandmother often served sausage stuffed mushrooms as a “nosh” before a family dinner started — but her version was also breaded and fried.
This bacon and sausage stuffed mushrooms recipe is a healthy version that I also find to be even tastier than our family’s original recipe. And it’s really simple to make. So go ahead and welcome your party guests with this delicious finger food!

The amounts of each ingredient will vary depending on how many people you'd like to serve and the size of the mushrooms you have available. But really, you're not going to mind having leftovers of any of these ingredients, so don't be shy.
If you have a full day of party preparations, you can stuff the mushrooms earlier in the day, and then just pop them into the oven closer to the time your guests will be showing up. If you time it right, your house will smell amazing when they arrive!
This recipe is compliant on all levels — just watch your bacon and sausage ingredients!
