Ingredients

  • 16 oz. reduced-fat pork sausage, skin removed
  • ½ medium onion, peeled and minced
  • ½ medium green bell pepper, seeded and minced

  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 24 whole button mushrooms, stems removed

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add sausage. Break the meat up with a spoon and cook until brown and the fat has rendered out, about 10 minutes. Add onion and pepper. Cook, until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and drain fat.
