Sausage and mushroom stuffing

Today, I am preparing a delicious breadless sausage and mushroom stuffing. The stuffing is versatile. It can be used in any pasta dish or as a filling for calzones, pork tenderloins, and pizza toppings.

For my recipe, you can use Italian sausage, breakfast sausage, or any other type of sausage that you prefer. The same goes for mushrooms.


  • 1 pound of sausage (I used homemade ground sausage)
  • 1 pound of mushrooms, sliced (I used white button mushrooms)
  • 1 onion, diced (large or small, depending on your taste)
  • ½ teaspoon of Italian sausage
  • ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of sage
  • ¼ teaspoon of oregano
  • ½ teaspoon of seasoning salt
  • ½ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper


First, finely dice an onion and slice the mushrooms. Set aside.

In a large skillet, add the sausage. Cook over medium-high heat for about ten minutes. Stir often. Once the sausage is nearly cooked, drain all the grease off.

Now, add the diced onion, sliced mushrooms, and the spices; stir well.

Once the meat has fully cooked throughout and the vegetables are tender, lower the heat to a simmer. Cook for another six minutes. Then add the grated parmesan cheese; stir well.

You can use the sausage stuffing in any pasta dish, as a filling for calzones, or as a topping for a pizza and also as a filling for a tenderlized, butterflied pork tenderloin, etc..


To make the sausage stuffing more filling for a pork tenderloin or roast, you can also add pre-cooked diced potatoes.

A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
