Cook the sausage in a medium skillet until browned, about 4 minutes.

While the sausage is cooking, finely chop the mushroom stems.

Transfer sausage-vegetable mixture to the bowl of a food processor. Add, 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs, 1/4 cup of Parmesan, 1/4 cup of parsley, the Essence, and the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil.

Divide the filling among the mushroom caps, about 1/2 cup for each mushroom.  I had a little extra filling and no more mushroom caps, so I filled a ramekin with the remainder.

Place the filled mushrooms on a baking sheet.

Combine remaining 1/4 cup of bread crumbs and 1/4 cup of Parmesan in a small mixing bowl. Divide the bread crumb mixture evenly among the tops of the mushrooms.

Bake until golden brown on top and the mushrooms are tender, about 15 to 18 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Garnish with remaining tablespoon of parsley, drizzle with olive oil and vinegar.  Emeril recommends you serve these warm or at room temperature, but I like them hot.
