I've made this recipe from Dottie and they're great:
DOTTIE'S STUFFED MUSHROOMS
2 pounds fresh mushrooms
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 pound pork sausage
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste
Remove the stems from the mushrooms by gently twisting them off. Chop the stems fine and brown along with the sausage. Drain the fat, if necessary. I found it helpful to chop the meat up until it was pretty fine, but not mushy. Mix in the remaining ingredients, except the mushroom caps. Fill the caps with the sausage mixture. I found that using a tiny cookie scoop and my fingers worked best. Pile in as much sausage as you can per mushroom. Put in a greased or foil-lined baking pan(s) and bake, uncovered, at 350║ for 20-30 minutes until hot and bubbly.

Sure! Make 'em all the time!
simple and quick - refrigerate well for snacking later
sausage and cream cheese as the basics, then you can add chopped green onion, cheese, try with bacon rather than sausage, chopped bell pepper, a little jalepeno pepper, red pepper flakes...the possibilities are ennnnndless!

You can also use chicken in place of the sausage (or with the sausage), but you really need to add something for flavor...season, season, season

I do the Costco artichoke jalapeno dip (Trader Joe's has it too, in a smaller container) and cooked bulk sausage, plus add some grated sharp Cheddar, and sprinkle the tops with Parm cheese. They're SO good!

Mmm all those sound good!
The recipe I made last year everyone loved. I got it from here or some other LC website not sure so cannot give thanks to owner.
24 large mushrooms
1 8oz chive/onion cream cheese
1 cup of crumbled Blue cheese
4 green onions (chopped)
2 cloves of garlic, minced (I used garlic powder to save time)
3/4 cup of bacon bits
Remove stems from mushrooms. In a small bowl combine: cream cheese, blue cheese, green onions, garlic and 1/4 cup of the bacon bits.
After mixing, stuff the mushroom caps with the mixture, place mushrooms (with mixture on top) in greased baking pan and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of bacon bits over the top of the mushroom cap.
Bake at 375 for 22 minutes
