Not only that, but they are an antioxidant, which can help your body fight off diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Mushrooms also have the B vitamins niacin, pantothenic acid, and riboflavin.

Gather the ingredients for the sausage and cream cheese stuffed mushrooms

Along with the mushrooms, you will need Italian sausage, which brings a lot of flavor to this dish. Cream cheese adds a buttery texture and a slight tang to the stuffing, while the cheddar cheese gives it a sharp taste. You will only need a few more ingredients, which include raw garlic for a slight spicy kick and onion powder. Don't forget to pick up some parsley. 

Prepare the mushrooms and sausages

Preheat the oven to 350 F, and place a piece of foil or parchment paper on a baking sheet. While you're waiting for the oven to heat up, the first thing you will need to do is to peel and wash the mushrooms. Remove the stems and chop them into fine pieces, and set aside. Next, you'll want to remove the casings from the sausages. An easy way to do this is to make a small incision in the casing and then carefully peel it away from the sausages.

Cook the sausage

Once you have removed the casings from the sausages, it's time to cook them. The first step to this process is heating some oil in a frying pan. Brookes says that olive, vegetable, or canola oil will all work fine, adding that you should not need more than a tablespoon because sausage tends to release fat as you cook it. Place the sausages into the pan, and break them up into small chunks. Fry them over medium heat until they are no longer pink.

Add the chopped mushrooms, garlic, and onion powder

Once the sausage is cooked, it is time to add the chopped mushroom stems, garlic, parsley, and onion powder to the pan. Stirring thoroughly and frequently, cook the mixture over medium heat for another couple of minutes. This should not take very long — Brookes told Mashed that a good way to know if you have cooked the ingredients long enough is if the mushroom pieces are soft.

Fill the mushrooms and bake

When you see that the stems have softened, remove the pan from the heat. Add the cream cheese and about half of the cheddar cheese to the mix and stir thoroughly. Once everything is combined, fill each mushroom cup with the mixture. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese over the tops of the stuffed mushrooms. Bake the mushrooms for 30 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown. Sprinkle some extra parsley on top to make these stuffed mushrooms look even more appetizing.
