Justine’s Low Carb Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe


 

I’ve been meaning to try these Stuffed Mushrooms ever since Justine shared her recipe with me here in the comments.

I had fresh mushrooms and the other two ingredients (yes, just THREE ingredients!) today so I decided to whip up a batch…

They turned out fabulous! 🙂

I wasn’t even in the mood for mushrooms 😛 but they were absolutely delicious.

They are also super low carb, and fast & easy to make. You’ll love these!

Low Carb Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Here is the original recipe/directions from Justine:

They’re just whole white button mushrooms, 1lb breakfast sausage (in the roll), 8oz cream cheese. You remove the stems from the mushrooms and with a small knife make the hole a tad bit bigger. Cook the entire lb of sausage, drain, season. Add the cream cheese to the sausage and mix.

Then stuff the mushrooms with the cream cheese mixture and bake on 350 for about 20 mins… and try not to drool while eating them! 🙂

I had half pound of Tennessee Pride sausage, so I made a half batch:

Ingredients

  • 8oz Package Fresh White Mushrooms
  • 4 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 8oz Ground Sausage

 

Green Giant Fresh White Mushrooms

I cooked the half pound of sausage in a non-stick skillet, then placed on a paper towel lined plate to drain the excess grease off the meat.

Cooking Ground Sausage for Stuffed Mushrooms

I added 4 ounces of cream cheese to the cooked crumbled sausage.

Stuffed Mushrooms Ingredients

The sausage was still hot, so I simply stirred it all together until it was a nice creamy mixture.

I removed the stems and hollowed out the mushrooms a bit.

Then I stuffed each mushroom with the sausage/cream cheese mixture.

Stuffing The Mushrooms

I baked them for 20 minutes at 350 degrees, and they came out beautiful!

Yum 🙂 Each mushroom is just over 1 carb each – around 1.25 carbs I believe.

I started with an 8 ounce package of mushrooms, but I measured the stems & insides that I removed as 2.5 ounces – so I counted 5.5 ounces of mushrooms in my Recipe Calculator in MyFitnessPal to come up with correct macros & nutrition facts.

I had 10 mushrooms in my package, so I made 1 mushroom a serving. I ate three, and that came out to only 4 net carbs – with 77% fat and 18% protein. Great macros!
