Having a dinner party or looking to try a delicious new appetizer? These mushrooms take little time to make, and they'll be a hit at your next party. We've replaced the bread crumbs with wheat germ to make them better for you.

Makes 24 mushrooms

24 large cremini mushrooms or white mushrooms

3 teaspoons olive oil, divided

2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots or onion

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

6 ounces sweet Italian chicken or turkey sausage, casings removed

1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh sage

Pinch freshly ground pepper, or to taste

5 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 400° F. Using a pastry brush, coat baking sheet with 1 teaspoon olive oil.

Trim mushroom ends, then carefully remove stems, keeping the caps intact. Chop stems into small pieces and place in medium bowl. Set aside.

In 10-inch skillet, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute for about 2 minutes until softened slightly but not browned. Add sausage and stir until almost cooked, 3 to 4 minutes, using spoon to crumble the sausage. Add chopped mushroom stems and continue to cook until mushrooms are soft.

Turn off heat and stir in wheat germ, sage, pepper and 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese.

Stuff mushroom caps with a heaping tablespoon of sausage mixture (packed). Place mushrooms about 1/2 inch apart on prepared baking sheet, sprinkling the last tablespoon of parmesan cheese on each mushroom. Bake until mixture is hot and mushrooms are cooked, 12 to 15 minutes.
