When it comes to holiday entertaining, I’m all about easy recipes that take little time to prepare but provide my guests with a little something satisfying to hold them over before the first course.

If you’d agree with me that appetizers don’t have to be full of carbs to be fantastically delicious than you will be nothing more than delighted to make these stuffed mushrooms for your guests.

Gourmet Garden products are what turns these standard stuffed mushrooms into something spectacular in flavor. These easy stir in pastes make for the quickest mixture to stuff little mushrooms. Adjust the spice as you like by using less or more than I have in this recipe.

The hardest part, which isn’t hard at all in fact, is simply cooking the sausage! Once that is ready you stir in the pastes and add some cream cheese and you’re practically done!

Make ahead up to 2 days before. Reheat in baking pan and transfer to a serving plate. Entertaining doesn’t have to be stressful and sometimes just easy appetizers  and some desserts are all you need for a party!
