iDirections: In a large pan, brown ground turkey and ground sausage with a splash of olive oil (medium heat) Add garlic clove, green onion, sweet onion, bell pepper and tomato. Prep large Portabella mushrooms- cut off top of mushroom from trunk. Use spoon to slightly hallow out bottom side of mushroom. (Creating a spot to put filling). Roughly chop interiors and throw into filling mixture to cook. Brush mushrooms tops with remaining olive oil and season with salt and pepper- then set in small oven dish and set aside. Once filling mixture is browned and veggies are soft- add cream cheese and stir until completely incorporated (mixture should be a creamy, and smell divine). Add parmesan cheese to mixture and continue to cook on low until filling is a creamy and cheesy incorporating all ingredients. Last add spinach into mixture, gently fold into mixture and turn off heat. Let cool slightly- ( about 5 minutes) and then spoon in mixture into mushroom tops. Top with a dash of parmesan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
(Like with all of my FHW Recipes, substitutes and additions are totally recommended! Add your favorite veggies or what is in season, or what is around the house!)
