Sausage-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • about 20 basil leaves, finely chopped (you need 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 4 Aidells Portobello Mushroom Sausage links, chopped
  • 2/3 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 4 ounces parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup high quality mayonnaise
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms (stems and dark gills removed)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. In heavy large skillet heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, basil and rosemary and sauté for 1 minute. Add the sausage and sauté for 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and add the breadcrumbs, cheese, and mayonnaise. Stir until fully combined and season filling to taste with salt and pepper. Place the mushrooms stem side up on a baking sheet. Divide the filling among the mushrooms, pressing to compact the mixture, but leaving a nice mound. Bake until the mushrooms are tender and filling begins to brown, about 35 minutes
