Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers. I always find myself with more than one on my plate. These stuffed mushrooms with sausage have become my new favorite!
Alfredo Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are an easy, cheesy, creamy appetizer for all your upcoming dinner parties and holiday celebrations. With only a few ingredients, they’re ready in just 20 minutes!
I know that mushrooms are a love-or-hate food. I fall firmly in the love category, especially when it comes to stuffed mushrooms. They’re a bite-sized appetizer that I love to make for parties around the holidays. If you love regular stuffed mushrooms, I know you’re going to adore these Alfredo Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms!
I make stuffed mushrooms in a variety of ways. Sometimes just with a cream cheese filling, sometimes mushrooms stuffed with sausage and cream cheese, sometimes with jalapenos or sometimes I even turn larger portabella mushrooms into mini-pizzas. All quick, easy and delicious ways to eat stuffed mushrooms, but I decided to go beyond the basics with this recipe.
As you may have guessed, these Alfredo Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are made with a base of alfredo sauce. However, don’t let that trick you into thinking these are difficult to make.
Instead of using jarred alfredo sauce, I made my own with heavy cream, parmesan cheese and spices. It’s a shortcut on a true alfredo sauce that I would make for pasta but is quick, easy and flavorful.
I use Italian sausage in this recipe because it provides more flavor than other types of flavor and the slight spice pairs nicely with the creamy alfredo sauce.
I plan on serving these Alfredo Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms at upcoming holiday parties as an appetizer. I’m slightly addicted to them, definitely prepare several for each guest, and know that they will be a hit.
These are best served warm so they’re an appetizer you’ll want to finish up just before serving but they’re so easy to whip together that these stuffed mushrooms with sausage are an easy last minute appetizer.
