  • Add garlic salt and onion powder.
  • Once the meat is cooked, turn the heat off and add the fresh basil. Stir.

  • Once all the cheese has been added remove the pan from the heat and mix well.
  • Add sausage mixture to mushroom caps and top with a little bit of extra cheese.
  • Cook in the oven for 5 -10 minutes. Continue to check to mushrooms so they don't burn but make sure they are soft before you remove them.
