    1
  • extra-large white mushrooms (8 ounces)
    6
  • olive oil (divided)
    2 tsp
  • balsamic vinegar
    2 tsp
  • small onion (diced)
    1/4
  • small green pepper (diced)
    1/4
  • lean turkey breakfast sausage

Directions

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a square baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Remove the stems from the mushrooms and chop them finely. Set aside the stems.

  3. Place the mushroom caps in a bowl and toss them with 1 Tsp. olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Set aside the caps.

  4. Heat the remaining Tsp. olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, green pepper, and mushroom stems and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the sausage and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the sausage is completely browned.

  5. Add the bread crumbs, stirring to combine evenly with all the other ingredients. Stir in the mozzarella cheese and melt.

  6. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese.

  7. Fill each mushroom generously with the sausage mixture (about 1 heaping Tbsp. per mushroom cap). Arrange the mushrooms in the baking dish and bake 40 minutes or until the stuffing is crispy on the top.
