Stuffed Mushrooms


Now that Halloween has past, my eyes are firmly set on Thanksgiving (while also looking forward to Christmas…my favorite holiday).  I want to bring an appetizer and/or dessert this year, and I want to try some new recipes.  The one condition I have is that it has to be dairy free so my boyfriend can enjoy it with the rest of us.  Stuffed mushrooms typically contain cheese, but with the addition of mayonnaise in this version the creaminess is not missed and it also has the traditional flavors of sausage and sage.  Try this recipe for your Thanksgiving cocktail hour.
