I love cooking appetizers/tapas. Making small foods is so much fun, and great practice for when you have guests over.
I wanted to try out a dish that I can use at Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season that will be quick, easy, and an over-all crowd pleaser.
You can’t go wrong with sausage and cheese – at least not in my house – so I took my favorite Sweet Italian Sausage and paired it with one of my favorite cheeses, Manchego…and then stuffed it all in a mushroom cap.
Stuffed Mushrooms are great as an appetizer because they’re a one-bite wonder (no need for forks or even plates) and are super satisfying.
If you’re not into Manchego cheese, try using Parmesan, mozzarella, taleggio, or a combo of any of those!
* Party tip: to transform a boring white plate/platter, just sprinkle on some dried parsley (like I did in my photos) and then just place your mushrooms on top. It takes the presentation to the next level!
