1 Cup
Black Diamond® Old White Cheddar Shredded Cheese
Italian sausages, casings removed
1/4 cup (60 mL)
prepared basil pesto

  1. Preheat one side of grill to medium-high heat, leaving remaining side on low heat; grease grate well.
  2. Stir together sausage and pesto; stuff evenly into each mushroom. Place mushrooms on grill over medium-high heat; grill for about 5 minutes or until mushrooms are grill-marked. Transfer to low-heat side of barbecue; top with cheese and jalapeño slices.
  3. Cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until sausage is cooked through and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with basil before serving.


  • Seed jalapeño peppers before slicing to reduce heat if desired.
  • Serve with salsa and guacamole.
