Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes
Serves: 15-20 stuffed mushrooms

Ingredients:

  • 15-20 cremini mushrooms
  • 2 Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks
  • 1 small diced yellow onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (plus extra for brushing mushrooms)
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ⅛ tsp fennel seeds
  • ⅛ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

Equipment:

  • Baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Mixing bowl

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Separate the stems from the mushroom caps, and dice them. Set aside, then brush each mushroom cap with olive oil and set on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  2. Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, onions, mushroom stems, beef sticks, and spices and cook for 5 minutes, until the garlic and onions are translucent and fragrant. Remove the mixture from the pan and set aside.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the egg into the almond flour until a sticky dough forms. 
  4. Add the sausage mixture to the almond flour dough and mix until thoroughly combined.
  5. Fill each of the mushroom caps with the mixture. Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden-brown. 
  6. Top with fresh chopped parsley and serve.
