It’s that time of the year… and no, not Christmas, I meant Super Bowl time!  Last year I posted a yummy healthy super bowl recipe, this Gluten-Free and Garbage-Free Chick-Fil-A Nuggets, and this year, I have another snack perfect for watching the Super Bowl… or any time, really!  It’s Paleo Sausage Stuffed Baby Portobello Mushrooms!

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of sausage

Instructions

0.  Preheat oven at 400°F.

1.  Pop off the stems from the baby portobello mushrooms.

2.  Chop up those stems, onions, and garlic finely.  I actually did this using a food chopper because I was feeling lazy.

3.  In a large skillet, heat the butter until it is melted.

4.  Add the chopped stems, onions, and garlic, and set aside to let cool.

5.  In a large bowl, mix sausage, egg, coconut flour, and the cooled down chopped stems, onions, garlic.   Also add the dried sage if you would like.  The reason I said the sage was optional was because, technically you can add whatever kind of spice you want.  For example, try dried basil! It’s also delicious.

6.  Scoop the mixture out with a spoon and stuff it in the mushroom caps.

7.  Coat the shroom caps with olive oil, and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes or until sausage is cooked thoroughly, and then you’re done! (If you want to add some color to them… go to step 8.)

    Making these right now! Curious…what’s the olive oil for? It’s in the ingredient list but not used in the recipe.

      GOOD question!!! I forgot to mention to coat the mushroom caps with the olive oil! This way it won’t stick to the baking sheet :)
