These beauties are pretty large-- about the size of the palm of my hand.
The stems are finely minced and set aside...
Green onions are a "must"-- cleaned and sliced thin...
NOTE: This recipe could easily be adapted for a vegetarian by not using sausage and using more chopped mushrooms and bread crumbs.
... fill those marinated and "cleaned" mushrooms to the brim!
I'm getting an idea...
NOTE: If you notice a toothpick...um, I kinda got aggressive cleaning out the mushrooms...and I "bwoke" one. I patched it back with a toothpick, which worked just fine.
TASTE NOTES: Regular Italian sausage is an ideal ingredient. Just be sure to drain the excess fat. Fresh thyme would be an excellent addition. I'm not sure if panko crumbs are vital. The moisture of the filling defeated the crunchiness of panko crumbs. I think regular bread crumbs would be fine. You can easily make the sausage a day ahead-- which is exactly what I've done.
