Serves: 12-15 servings
â€¢12 to 15 large fresh mushrooms
â€¢2 tablespoons butter, divided
â€¢2 tablespoons chopped onion
â€¢1 tablespoon lemon juice
â€¢1/4 teaspoon dried basil
â€¢Salt and pepper to taste
â€¢4 ounces Johnsonville® Ground Sausage
â€¢1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
â€¢2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs

â€¢Remove stems from the mushrooms. Chop stems finely; set mushroom caps aside. Place stems in paper towels and squeeze to remove any liquid.
