So let’s get to this easy stuffed mushroom recipe, shall we?  I was wanting something more filling than traditional stuffed mushrooms that just use breadcrumbs and cheese.  These definitely fit the bill with the use of flavorful sausage, hearty kale, and yummy gouda.

I used frozen chopped kale in these easy stuffed mushrooms because I’m lazy like that and it doesn’t take as long to cook.  Organic frozen vegetables are a busy moms best friend!

I love this recipe because it uses only 1 skillet to get the job done.  I cooked my sausage in the skillet until it was done, then I added the kale and seasoning.  After the kale was no longer crunchy, I added in the cheese!  This easy stuffed mushroom recipe may have kale, but it has cheese!

I then removed all of the stuffing from the skillet and wiped it clean.  Then I layered the mushrooms caps into the skillet and stuffed them with the kale and sausage stuffing!

Top with more cheese and put them into the oven.  So easy!

    Can spinach be used instead of kale?

      That would be a good substitution but you may want to add more than the recipe calls for since spinach shrinks so much.
