This deserves a five on simplicity alone. The most recent time I made these was for our anniversary dinner which we celebrated with our 20 and 23 year old kids (one of whom doesn't like mushrooms). I used about 3/4 lb of Jimmy Dean sage sausage with about 6 oz softened cream cheese. I filled 12 good sized mushrooms - probably 1 1/2 to 2 inches across. I added a few shakes of green Tabasco (though sometimes I use cayenne). Everyone loved them. My hint to others: slice a slim slice from the bottom so the mushrooms rest flat and spray them with Pam. Turn them over and fill. Top with panko and spray again. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Can finish under the broiler if they haven't browned but I've never needed to do that. I hope your family and guests like them as much as mine. Hint #2: use a potato masher to get small, fine crumbles of sausage (essential to easy filling). If pre-cooked sausage crumbles are available, this recipe is even simpler. Thanks, Sam, for the recipe.
