Sausage Stuffed Cremini Mushrooms

Ingredients

30 cremini mushrooms, tops only
3 links Italian turkey sausage, casings removed and crumbled
1/2 cup white wine plus ΒΌ cup, separated (We had a bit of Sauvignon Blanc.)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup bread crumbs
6 sprigs thyme plus 2 tablespoons, minced
1 tablespoon parsley, minced
1 teaspoon oregano
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Preparation

1
Swirl a bit of olive oil in a pan and add garlic, sausage and whole thyme sprigs. Pour in 1/2 cup of wine. Cook down until sausage has browned, approximately 5-7 minutes.
2
As sausage cooks, combine cream cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, oregano, and remaining thyme. Set aside.
3
When sausage is done, discard thyme stems. Transfer to a bowl and let mixture cool, approximately 10-15 minutes.
4
Once sausage has cooled a bit, fold it into cream cheese mixture. Stir well. Dollop into tops of mushrooms and arrange in a baking dish.
5
Mixed melted butter with remaining wine and pour around mushrooms. Shimmy the baking dish to spread wine and butter around. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until mushrooms begin to brown.
