It is no secret that I am all about finger foods and appetizers. All-day every day! Cream cheese stuffed mushrooms have become a staple at family get-togethers.
This year I decided to take it up a notch and take our traditional pork sausage and cream cheese stuffed mushrooms and combine with a twist on spinach artichoke dip.

Stuffed mushrooms are always a hit at parties. Check out the recipe for bacon and Brie wonton cups for another favorite party appetizer recipe.
These are super simple to make and you can even make these ahead of time and then just pop them in the oven as your guests arrive.
Although my sister-in-law doesn’t like mushrooms (really?!?), she spoons out the filling and passes the mushrooms to my brother. The filling is SOOO good!
I hope that you like these as much as I do. Mike is not a big fan of artichokes, but he loved these.
