Sausage stuffed mushrooms!
This is one of John’s all time favorite appetizers. We make it for almost every holiday and special occasion. You can choose to use any bulk sausage; we have just found that the flavors of the Jimmy Dean Sausage really compliment this recipe. It’s easy (and fun) to make and I’m sure the whole family will enjoy it. Happy Holidays!
