Keto Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are juicy, delicious, and only require 6 ingredients. They are the perfect appetizer for holidays, parties, and even summer barbecues. They are ideal if you are eating a low carb, keto, gluten-free, or grain-free diet.
These stuffed mushrooms aren't your average party food! They are extraordinary and give you an explosion of flavor with every bite. Plus, it's easy to double or even triple if you are feeding a crowd of hungry people. No matter when you serve them, I can promise this low carb keto stuffed mushrooms recipe won't disappoint.
Oh, and the best part is that you can quickly and easily prep low carb stuffed mushrooms in advance! This makes them even easier to prepare for gatherings. So all you will have to do at the last minute is actually bake them and devour them.
I wasn't kidding when I said you just need a few ingredients. But as good as they taste, you would think these are super hard to make. Here are the ingredients you will be needing.
- Mushrooms - You'll need to carefully remove the stems, so you have little mushroom bowls to fill with all the good stuff. You can save them for another use. Keto mushroom sauce is a great use for chopped mushroom stems.
- Sausage - Any variety of ground sausage that you enjoy will work. The sausage adds a lovely depth of flavor that really makes these mushrooms so amazing. I generally use mild Italian sausage made from pork but turkey sausage, chicken sausage, or any hot sausage are fine!
- Cheddar Cheese - Great way to add some flavor as well as protein, good fats, and calcium. Who knew how great healthy food could taste? Yum!
- Coconut Flour - Gluten free coconut flour helps absorb the cooking liquid that the sausage releases.
- Cream Cheese - While you don't need a lot of cream cheese, it's the perfect ingredient to make the filling rich and delicious.
- Egg - To help bind the sausage, cheese, coconut flour, and salt together, an egg is the best option.
- Salt - I like to add a little bit of salt to add some extra flavor. The sausage and cheese have a little bit of saltiness already, but it's not overwhelming. Feel free to adjust the amount of salt you add.

Tips & Variations For Keto Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms
This is one of those easy keto recipes that is super simple for even beginners. So, don't worry if you don't have much experience, because it's not needed!
- In the mood for different cheese? No problem, swap the cheddar for pepper jack, mozzarella, or colby jack. They all taste great.
- If you love some spice, go ahead and turn up the heat! Sprinkle some red pepper flakes into the filling mixture.
- You don't just have to use sausage! Feel free to substitute it for any other kind of ground meat. Chicken, ground beef, and turkey are all really great options. Since plain ground meat does not have seasoning you will want to add some to the filling.
- Try to use mushrooms that are all similar in size. This will allow them to cook evenly and at the same speed.
- Don't toss the stems! You can actually chop up the stems and add them to soups, stews, or the filling for the mushrooms.
How Do You Clean Mushrooms?
The best way to clean mushrooms is to lightly rinse them under cool water. Don't let them become too wet, or they will be watery when you eat them. After rinsing, take a paper towel or kitchen towel and dry off the mushrooms.
Can I Make The Keto Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms Ahead Of Time?
Yep! This is one of my favorite gluten free keto recipes to meal prep because it's easy. Simply follow the instructions and prepare and bake the mushrooms ahead of time. Keep them in an airtight container, and they will last up to 3 days. Just reheat in the microwave or in the oven.
Can I Make Stuffed Mushrooms For A Crowd?
Of course! You will have around 24 mushrooms from this recipe. The serving size is for 2 mushrooms, so you will simply need to adjust the toggle on my recipe card to increase (or decrease) the number of servings. Then everything will be figured for you, and you can conveniently print it, and you are all set.
