Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

1 1/2 lb. med. mushrooms
1/2 lb. Italian Sausage
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Remove mushroom stems. Chop stems. In a skillet, over medium heat, cook sausage until lightly browned. Remove and drain meat on a paper towel. Remove all but about 2 Tbl. drippings from skillet. In hot drippings, over medium heat, cook mushroom stems until tender (about 10 minutes). Stir frequently. Remove skillet from heat and stir in sausage, cheese and bread crumbs. Fill mushroom caps with mixture. Place in a 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake 15 minutes.

Changes - use regular sausage, chicken or turkey sausage, add diced black olives for extra flavor or add more flavor by sprinkling the tops with Parmesan cheese before baking.
