      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients: 

      • Mushrooms 
      • Turkey sausage
      • Butter 
      • Onions
      • Cream cheese
      • Parmesan cheese
      • Gruyère cheese

      Mushrooms, turkey, and onions are all natural, nutritious ingredients. Use them to add flavor, nutrients, and protein to a variety of recipes. 

      But what about butter and cream cheese? What about gruyère and parmesan? Is dairy healthy?

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture-raised cows and try to eat less. 

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy.

      Most stuffed mushrooms are made with breadcrumbs (a starchy carb), which digests very similarly to sugar. 

      Add 22g of starchy breadcrumbs to this recipe, and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.)

      Omit the breadcrumbs, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, protein, and quality, whole-food energy. 

      Enjoy these low-carb stuffed mushrooms knowing they support your well-being.

      Stuffed Mushrooms Tips

      Make Ahead Stuffed Mushrooms! Small Bites Appetizers.

      1. Prevent waste

      Don’t throw out the mushroom stems as you’re cleaning and hollowing the mushroom caps! Instead, dice them up, and sautè them with the onion to add to the filling. 

      2. Store leftovers

      Once cooled, you can transfer leftover mushrooms to an airtight container. They will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just warm them in the oven or microwave when you’re ready to eat. 

      3. Make large stuffed mushrooms 

      Transform this recipe into a complete meal by swapping the stuffer mushrooms with large mushroom caps. Just hollow out the cap, stuff it with the filling and bake as normal. You’ll have a hearty, high-protein meal in minutes!

        • 12 stuffer button mushrooms
        • ½ pound spicy turkey sausage
        • 1 tsp butter
        • ½ cup diced sweet onions
        • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
        • 4 oz cream cheese
        • ¼ tsp garlic powder
        • ¼ tsp salt and pepper each
        • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan
        • ¼ cup freshly grated gruyere
        • Garnish with parsley


        • Wash mushrooms, remove stems.
        • Saute onions with butter and garlic for 3-5 minutes on low to medium heat in a skillet. 3. Add turkey sausage, garlic powder and salt and pepper and cook meat through ensuring it is all crumbled as it’s cooked.
        • Once cooked, turn the pan to low and add the cream cheese and gruyere and most of the parm (reserving about 2 tbsp to sprinkle on the top) and mix until all is melted and incorporated.
        • Remove mixture from stove, allow to cool and store in fridge for 1-2 hours.
        • After, fill each mushroom center evenly and place in a preheated oven on 350 F for 20-25 min – with a low broil for the last 3-5 minutes to add a nice crispy top to them.
        • Remove and garnish with remaining parmesan and parsley.
