I love a good stuffed mushroom and this is what I came up with for lunch today.
Mr. Hawthorne loved them!
Rosie's Stuffed Shrooms
1 dozen mushroom caps, cleaned and stems removed
6 oz. hot Jimmy Dean sausage
1 TB chopped fennel bulb
1 TB chopped onion
1 TB chopped green pepper
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
2 TB chopped fresh parsley
grated Provolone cheese
more chopped parsley
Heat a skillet over medium heat and lightly brown the sausage, breaking it up with a wooden spatula. Add in the chopped fennel, onion, green pepper, and fennel seeds. Cook, stirring for another minute.
Stir in the parsley.
Spoon filling into mushroom caps, pressing as much as you can into the caps, and mounding the rest.
Top the stuffed shrooms with thin slices of Provolone cheese. Sprinkle with panko.
Under a 450° broiler for about 7 minutes, or until panko is golden.
Sprinkle with more parsley.
Ready for the broiler.
Sprinkle more fresh parsley over top.
