Keto Sausage Rotel Stuffed Mushrooms
Stuffed mushrooms are a popular party appetizer even for your non-keto friends. It is always nice to make something to take to a party that will please the crowd regardless of their dietary choices. These mushroom bites will do just that!
Keto sausage rotel stuffed mushrooms are nice because if you want to make two options (keto vs. non-keto friends) you can do it easily. Just make your filling up in the crockpot. Add tortilla chips for eating the rotel for those that choose to (non-keto) & then use some of the filling to make these delicious stuffed mushrooms.
What You Need
These keto sausage rotel stuffed mushrooms use just a few basic ingredients that can be found at any regular grocery store.
For my Trim Healthy Mama friends, this would be considered a NSI (no special ingredients) S Meal due to the fats in the cream cheese and sausage plus you get the benefits of mushrooms that Pearl and Serene rave about.
So to make these cheesy mushrooms you need:
- Baby Bella Mushrooms (You could also use whole white mushrooms)
- A block of cream cheese
- Can of Rotel
- Roll of Breakfast Sausage (hot or mild)
- Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
Making Low Carb Stuffed Mushrooms
Creating these rotel stuffed mushrooms is pretty easy! I made them on the stovetop this time but you can also use your crockpot to make it even easier.
First, brown the roll of sausage. Drain excess grease if needed.
Once the sausage is browned, you will combine everything but the baby bella mushrooms. You can add the browned sausage and other ingredients to your slow cooker on low or just melt it together in your skillet.
After the cream cheese, rotel and sausage are combined, then you are ready to stuff your mushrooms.
Wash and dry your mushrooms. Remove the stems and place them on a baking sheet. I like to use one like this to prevent soggy mushrooms.
Spoon in about a teaspoon to a tablespoon (depending on the size of your mushroom) of filling into the cleaned mushrooms.
Top with a pinch of cheddar cheese. My husband wanted his without the shredded cheese because he is a cream cheese purist. I tried both but definitely preferred the mushrooms with the shredded cheese. The cheese formed a little crust on top that helped to hold in all the creamy cream cheese mixture and I liked the extra texture.

Hi Lauren, well my husband actually covered his leftover steak with it the next day! Lol
I don’t do strict keto so I had thought about making some chips out of low carb tortillas or eating it with pork rinds. I would probably do that next time if I got to the leftovers before my husband!
