Sausage and blue cheese stuffed mushrooms.

or “What to do when you have a lot of little leftovers.”

This is just a little post because we’ve been overwhelmed with holiday BBQs. When we got home from a weekend full of meat-heavy meals, hubby said he just wanted something light. I took the opportunity to unload some leftovers. Here is what I used:

10 Mushroom caps
1 cup sweet Italian sausage crumbles
3/4 cup pizza sauce
1 pkg blue cheese crumbles
1/2 cup leftover wilted spinach
Fresh grated parmesan
Plain breadcrumbs

To make the mushrooms, I arranged the caps in a container and sprinkled them with salt. Then I mixed together the sausage, cheese, and spinach. I put heaping spoonfuls of the mixture into the mushrooms and topped them with parmesan and breadcrumbs. Into the oven they went at 350F for 25 minutes.

Super simple and a decent Sunday evening meal.

Stuffed mushrooms are great for getting rid of fridge ingredients. In this case, we had had a make-your-own pizza night earlier in the week. I had planned to make stuffed mushrooms for a party, but it turned out we didn’t need another side dish.
