These turkey stuffed mushrooms are my attempt on quick meal ideas that utilize 5 or fewer recipes. This matters because as much as I love to experiment in the kitchen, I am not keen on meals that require too much preparation. This also suggests less washing up afterward.
The ingredients are very low on carbs, so do give these turkey stuffed mushrooms a try if you are on the Keto lifestyle.
I also prefer the goat cheese because I don’t react much to it as I do with the other dairy cheeses.
It is also no secret that most homes do not randomly keep goat cheese, so you can substitute with other items. I use cream cheese sometimes. You can find other subs here.
The poblano peppers are the source of the spiciness, so if you prefer something less so – you can simply use green peppers and add your preferred spice. It is not an all or nothing recipe.

How to cook Spicy Turkey stuffed mushrooms
1 Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease a large roasting pan with one tablespoon olive oil. Set aside.
2 Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add diced Poblano peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until the peppers soften and develop a bit of color, approximately 3-4 minutes.
3 Add 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 goat cheese to 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 until the mushrooms are slightly browned around the edges, approximately 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
