Haylie also loves stuffed mushrooms, which are easy to spice up with jalapenos and sausage. Duff said she also loves to incorporate fresh herbs as often as possible. Rachael said pecorino is tangy while parmesan is nutty, so they work well together.

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped Thyme
  • 1 link Sausage
  • 1 cup grated Pecorino Cheese
  • 1 Egg Yolk
