Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms.


Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe



I first wrote this post when I was 34 weeks pregnant with my 4th kiddo (unknown to me then, but my only girl!), and I was utterly and thoroughly obsessed with all things bacon and cheese.  I think maybe it was the fact that I couldn't eat anything tasty with my first pregnancy (thanks a lot, rotten gallbladder) and I overcompensated with later pregnancies.  These Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms are based on my favorite appetizer at a (now gone) local restaurant, Bill's Elbow. Bill is no longer with us, but his tasty food lives on.  I like to think he'd be pleased about that.

[original text] I'm kind of on a bacon and cheese kick lately. Let's just go ahead and blame it on the pregnancy, mmmkay? Great! Now that we've got that all settled, go ahead and take a gander at this tasty bit of bacony heaven I made today. These Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms are the ultimate appetizer or afternoon snack.

What I especially love about them is you can make up a batch ahead of time and stick them in the fridge until you're ready to bake and serve. How convenient! Right now I have a whole mess of them prepped in the fridge so I can make small batches whenever the next craving strikes!



----------


Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Mushroom Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces (1/2 pound) bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled (I store precooked bacon in the freezer, it's so convenient!)
  • 16 ounces white mushrooms, cleaned with stems removed (about 35 caps)
  • 2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • garlic salt


Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Mushroom Directions:


  1. In a bowl mix together the cheese, bacon, and mayo.
  2. Scoop ingredients into mushroom caps and place cheesy side up in a casserole dish. (If you're making ahead of time, throw them in the fridge or freezer now).
  3. Sprinkle caps liberally with garlic salt and bake at 350 degrees for about twenty minutes, until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.
  4. Serve warm and ENJOY!
