Today we have a very special guest post from one of my very bestest friends Natalia from Ma Nouvelle Mode
. I hope you all enjoy and make sure you stop by her blog and say hi!
Hello Junk in the Trunk Trio readers!! It is lovely to meet you! Thank you to these three lovely ladies for allowing me to guest post. Lindsey and I actually go way back. We were besties in our college years. Oh, the memories!! Some of my best!
But for those of you who don't know me, my name is Natalia and I blog over at Ma Nouvelle Mode
. If you are wondering what that means, it is French for 'my new style.'
Now you are probably wondering “why French?” Well, it just so happens that I am living here in France with my husband and two boys. My husband plays basketball here, and the boys and I are his biggest fans!
Over at my place, you can find a mix of fashion, beauty, hair, makeup, some recipes and of course some of our crazy life of traveling the globe. I do like to get crafty but living over here doesn't always allow for craftiness. For one, we move every year. And second of all, they don't have Joann's or Michael's here. Just one craft store in my city and it's availability is not so great. So I thought I would share a recipe with you all!
This recipe is for stuffed mushrooms. I absolutely love it. It is so easy. My husband doesn't like mushrooms, so I make it when we have company. Then I eat all the leftovers by myself. mmmmm yummy….
So here we go!
Clean the mushrooms with a damp paper towel or cloth. Not under water, it will ruin the mushrooms.
Then pluck the stems out of the mushrooms and dice them up.
Sautee the sausage unt
il almost cooked through
and then add the garlic and mushroom stems. Cook until everything is cooked through. Drain off excess oil if needed. (you can see that I needed to!)
Add cream cheese. It is hard to convert measurements because I make this with French ingredients, but it was about 300 grams. Does anyone know what that is?
Then you can proceed to stuff the mushrooms! Get that stuffing in there, be generous! Let it overflow on top, it will mostly stay and if some fall, not to worry, it is still edible for sure!
After they have been stuffed, place them in a baking dish and fill the bottom with a little bit of water. This will prevent the mushrooms from drying out during cooking. You will also want to baste the mushrooms with butter before baking as well.
Pop them in a 350 degree oven for about 15 or 20 minutes and voila!! You have a very easy, very yummy appetizer!
I hope you enjoyed this yummy little thing as much as I did! (well probably not, since you haven't tasted them yet!) I would love it if you stopped by and said hello, I love meeting new friends!
