Prep Time: 25 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
- 1/2 pound chicken sausage
- 1/2 yellow onion finely diced
- 1/2 red bell pepper finely diced
- 1 tablespoon SPG Seasoning
- 1 tablespoon Rosemary Garlic Seasoning
- 8 ounces Neufchatel cream cheese softened
- 1 1/2 pounds baby bella mushrooms
- Heat the oven up to 350 degrees F before anything else. Then heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Carefully remove the sausage from the casing and Pour it out into the pan. Once you notice the sausage is turning brown, add the onion and the bell pepper. After that, continue cooking until the sausage cooks thoroughly, and the vegetables become tender.
- Then transfer them to a mixing bowl containing cream cheese, SPG Seasoning, and Rosemary Garlic Seasoning. Then stir thoroughly to have a smooth mixture.
- Get rid of stems from the mushrooms and discard them, or you may keep them for alternative use. Then with a spoon, cautiously pluck out the gills or end up breaking the shell. Place the mushrooms on a greased sheet pan.
- then divide the cream cheese so that each mushroom gets a share of the mixture. They may overflow but don't worry; they will shrink. Bake for around 20 minutes or as long as the mushrooms become tender and appealing to taste. Finally serve immediately when hot.
