Stuffed Mushrooms- Tiny Stuff for Dinner

Little Foodie LOVES, LOVES, LOVES anything tiny so appetizers for dinner makes everyone happy! Appetizers are the perfect dinner for kids, I am not talking about frozen mozzarella sticks but any homemade meal made smaller. Tiny pizzas or Tiny homemade turkey burgers, if you have a picky eater try making them a tiny meal tonight. I adapted this recipe from one found on, enjoy!

  • 12 large fresh mushrooms, stems removed
  • 1 (6 ounce) package chicken flavored dry stuffing mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 pound cooked sasuage ( I used organic chicken sausage)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup chicken or veggie stock
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • crushed red pepper to taste


  1. Arrange mushroom caps on a medium baking sheet, bottoms up.
  2. Prepare chicken flavored dry stuffing mix according to package directions.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Mix in garlic and stock and cook until garlic is tender, about 5 minutes.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix together prepared dry stuffing mix, cream cheese and cooked sausage. Liberally stuff mushrooms with the mixture. Drizzle with the buttery mixture. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and crushed red pepper.
  6. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 10 to 12 minutes, or until stuffing is lightly browned.
