Sausage and Gorgonzola Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus ¼ cup
  • 12 ounces turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped oregano leaves
  • ¾ cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 cup (4-ounces) Gorgonzola
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus extra for seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus extra for seasoning
  • 6 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed

Directions

Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill.

In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add the turkey sausage and cook, stirring frequently, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the mascarpone cheese. Add the thyme, oregano, bread crumbs, ½ cup of Gorgonzola, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Stir until all ingredients are combined.

Brush the mushrooms on both sides with the remaining oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the mushrooms, stem side down, for 3 minutes. Turn the mushrooms over and grill for 2 minutes until tender. Fill each mushroom with the sausage mixture and top with the remaining Gorgonzola. Return the mushrooms to the grill and cook until the stuffing is warmed through and the Gorgonzola starts to melt, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Notes: The assembled mushrooms can also be placed on a baking sheet and cooked under a preheated broiler until warmed through.
