stuffed mushrooms w/ sausage
I have some excellent quality ground pork and I lost my recipe for stuffed mushrooms.
Can you help w/ recipe?
With parmesan and breadcrumbs. I'm thinking while I'm at it I'll stuff some Mariachi peppers too. Do you think I can freeze?
Because of the water in the cell structure, I don't think the mushrooms can be frozen without break down. The peppers should be able to be frozen without too many ill affects. Other peppers seem to be frozen on a regular basis without issue (poppers).
Recipe-wise I'd go this way:
Pull off the mushroom cap and reserve the stem.
Make your sausage and add the stem back into it as a binder. I'd go mild flavors in the sausage to match the cap. By mild I'm thinking a couple of cloves of garlic, a bit of sage (fresh) and some basil.
Finish with parmeasan and bake at 350 until browned.
I sometimes add a little balsamic vinegar to my stuffing to cut through the fattiness of the sausage. I don't know about the freezing, never tried that before.
