Spicy Sausage Stuffed Portobellos

Tailgate Time

A delectable low carb option, these stuffed mushrooms have a spicy kick thanks to the flavor loaded sausage filling. Melty mozzarella cheese coat the top of the mushrooms. The side salad is tangy, sweet and comes together quick to compliment the heat from the sausage. We suggest pairing this with our Diamond Collection Merlot. Swap out sausage for quinoa for a tasty vegetarian option!
