  • ¼ pound mild pork sausage
  • ¼ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • ⅓ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Clean the mushrooms with a damp paper towel and pull out the stems. Finely chop ¼ cup of the mushroom stems and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, brown and crumble the sausage until cooked through. Transfer to a plate to cool.
  3. Add the onion, garlic, and ¼ cup of reserved mushroom stems to the same skillet and cook 4 minutes on medium-low heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste and remove from heat.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese and Parmesan cheese. Add the cooled sausage and mushroom stems and stir to combine.
