Mushroom caps are stuffed with spicy sausage and three kinds of cheese: cream cheese, Monterey jack cheese, and Parmesan cheese.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 24 medium mushroom caps
  • 1 package (1 pound) spiced sausage
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated


Wash the mushrooms, remove the stems, and pat dry with paper towels. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cook the sausage in a large skillet until done, drain, and place in a mixing bowl.
