These Creamy Spinach and Sausage Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms make a delicious dinner!
I find myself cooking almost entirely with chicken and beef. Maybe you’re the same? I was recently thinking that I should really include more pork into our meals for some variety, so I decided to buy some sausage and some pork loin.
I couldn’t think what to make, but my kids had been asking me to buy the giant mushrooms (that’s what they call portobello mushrooms) for a while, so I decided to combine the two ingredients and make a new recipe, and these creamy spinach and sausage stuffed portobello mushrooms were the result.
These were so good! They would also be a wonderful appetizer if you substituted regular mushrooms for the portobellos. They are definitely rich, but oh so yummy!
It is actually surprising, but my kids love mushrooms, and my middle kid adores vegetables of all kinds. When he was really little, he would steal the veggies off our plates if we weren’t looking.
Little Man was especially fond of asparagus, broccoli, and spinach, which seems funny since those are typically veggies that kids hate! The funniest part is that he would try to be so sneaky about stealing the vegetables, when we would have obviously given him plenty more if he would have just asked!
I decided to incorporate spinach into this recipe to make it a little bit healthy. Everyone in my family loved these creamy spinach and sausage stuffed portabello mushrooms and they all hope I’ll make these for dinner again soon!
