I forgot how much I absolutely love these sausage stuffed mushrooms! They’re packed full of oozy Gorgonzola cheese and yummy walnuts making them absolutely perfect for Autumn and trust me they are so addictive.

Mushroom season is in full swing especially here in Italy. Country roads are lined with parked cars of Italian foragers searching the woods on damp, misty mornings for those prized mushrooms and I have to say they seem to know what they’re doing. Baskets are filled to the brim with big, earthy, beautiful mushrooms ready to adorn risottos, pasta dishes and steaks, nom nom nom!

I have to say even although the thought of foraging in the misty woods early in the morning and finding all those delectable mushrooms then cooking a beautiful meal with something you’ve just foraged with your own bare hands sounds incredible. It’s also very very dangerous and although I’m confident those Italians filling their baskets know exactly what they’re doing it’s still a risky business and I don’t think I’ll be trying it anytime soon.


So instead I stick to the supermarkets when it comes to mushrooms and at this time of year they are filled with all different kinds and varieties! I came across these portobello mushrooms that yeah ok aren’t the most exciting variety of mushroom but are absolutely delicious when stuffed!

I stuffed these babies with Italian sausages, Gorgonzola and walnuts (classic combo), onion, garlic, parmesan and parsley.

Oh my days they are amazing and what’s more they only take around 5-10 minutes to prepare before being popped in the oven for 15-20 minutes, making them a speedy supper indeed.

I start by browning the sausage in a pan, followed by the onion and garlic. I add it all to a bowl with Parmesan, Gorgonzola, parsley and some pepper.

Almost done…

I then rub the portobello mushrooms in a little oil and stuff them with the sausage mixture. They’re then baked for 15-20 minutes and Voliá! Time to eat.

    Your description of Italians foraging for mushrooms is so good! That sounds magical but I agree with you-leave it to the people who know what they’re doing. I love stuffed mushrooms and these look and sound amazing!

    I thought sausage stuffed mushrooms were the perfect combination of two of my favorite foods – but when you added gorgonzola as well… you brought it up to a whole other level. Wow.
