Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.

It may not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

This Turkey Stuffed Mushrooms Appetizer shows just how versatile turkey can be - perfect for Holiday parties and gatherings.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 large Poblano pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 lb (450g) bulk turkey sausage or ground turkey
  • 4 oz (100g) goat cheese, room temp, cut into small chunks
  • 16 oz (450g) medium Portobello mushrooms, rinsed, stems removed, and patted dry
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4 and lightly grease a large roasting pan with one tablespoon of olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add diced poblano peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the peppers soften and develop a bit of color.
  3. Add the turkey sausage to the skillet. Cook until no longer pink, approximately 6-8 minutes, breaking up the sausage into small pieces while cooking.
  4. Add the goat cheese to the skillet and cover for 1-2 minutes. Remove cover and stir until cheese is completely melted and combined with the turkey and pepper mixture. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Fill each mushroom cap with some of the turkey mixture. Drizzle the mushrooms with remaining olive oil and season with salt and black pepper, as desired.
  6. Place pan in the preheated oven and roast for 10-12 minutes until the mushrooms are slightly browned around the edges. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
