Sausage and Cornbread Stuffed Mushrooms

Easy way to use up some leftover cornbread stuffing, even if you make the stuffing ahead of time on purpose for a delicious holiday appetizer!

I use a sage sausage blend in this but if you have a regular type, you can supplement by adding more sage or other herbs, such as thyme or marjoram or even poultry seasoning. Your leftover stuffing will likely have some herbs in it too so keep that in mind if adding more.

I hadn’t planned to use the cottage cheese but I am in the middle of a move so subsequently forgot to get a package of cream cheese at the market, as I had planned. Sometimes that happens to us all. But serendipitous as it might be, the cottage cheese actually works very well. You can use whichever you have on hand.

I do hope you enjoy!
