“This is a GREAT addition to the holiday feast...or for anytime! They are crusty on top and juicy on the inside. The Panko crumbs give them a very nice crispness. You can use any type of sausage, mild or spicy, or mix them up. Try to get a good Italian Mascarpone cheese, I find it makes a difference. I also drizzle any leftover Marsala mixture over the top of the stuffing before adding to the shrooms. I may try shallots instead of the green onions, but it is DIVINE just as it is.This is adapted from FN- Barefoot Contessa. Hope you enjoy!”

  3. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.

  10. Fill each mushroom generously with the sausage mixture.
