Suggested Twists for Turkey Stuffed Mushrooms

The recipe above is pretty basic — and tasty — as is. Why not get a little creative and make this recipe your own?

Spice It Up

  • Before you add the turkey to the skillet, cook a seeded and diced Poblano pepper until it softens and develops a bit of color, approximately 3-4 minutes.

Play Meat Matchmaker

  • You don’t have to limit yourself to turkey sausage. Any kind of sausage will do. If it doesn’t come in bulk, you can simply remove the casings.
  • You don’t have to limit yourself to sausage, either. Any kind of ground meat will work. Just be sure to add in some seasonings for flavor.

Get Cheesy

  • Experiment with other types of soft cheeses. Instead of goat cheese, try out cream cheese, mascarpone, or Port wine cheese spread.
  • You can even top with cheese. Before you put your stuffed mushrooms in the oven, put a little shredded Parmesan, Romano, or Cheddar on top.

Have Fun with Fungus

  • There are a variety of mushrooms, big and small that could work with this recipe. Explore your produce section and experiment with them. Shitake or white button mushrooms are commonly found at most grocery stores.
