  • 6-8 large white button mushrooms or baby bella mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons minced shallot
  • pinch of fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Chèvre purchase the creamiest you can find
  • 3 tablespoons Panko bread crumbs divided
  • 1/8 pound Italian Sausage broken into very small chunks
  • Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • Balsamic Vinegar for drizzling or balsamic glaze


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Wipe mushrooms clean with a wet towel. Remove steps and chop. Combine stems with Italian Sausage and shallots and a pinch of salt, and then sauté with a scant drizzle of olive oil until very soft and sausage is cooked through. Sprinkle with the 1/2 of the panko bread crumbs. Cook until bread crumbs are just starting to turn golden and remove from heat, stirring well.
  • Dip or brush mushroom caps with balsamic vinegar. Divide sautéed mushroom caps and Italian sausage mixture between mushroom caps - do not overfill!
  • Top each mushroom with chèvre cheese (the amount you use really depends on the size of the mushrooms).
  • Mix grated Parmigiano Reggiano with some more Panko bread crumbs and Italian seasoning and sprinkle on top of the cheese. Use a small food grinder to combine this mxture if you'd like. It will make it more manageable to fill the mushroom caps.
  • Place on a sheet pan or jelly roll pan and drizzle or mist lightly with olive oil and a small drizzle of Balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze.
  • Roast on top rack of a preheated 425-degree oven for 10 minutes or until sizzling and cheese starts to melt. Broil if additional browning is desired.
