3 of my favorite words in the English language…Bacon….Stuffed….Mushrooms….mmmmmmmmm
I made these over the 4th of July weekend and friends thought they were a hit. Simple to put together and a great make ahead appetizer!

Chop up 4 slices of bacon and fry it up…

Take the bacon out of the pan…leaving the “holy” bacon grease in the pan. Use this to saute your green pepper, onion and chopped up mushroom stems. Salt and pepper to taste.

In a mixing bowl, combine drained vegetables, cream cheese and bacon.

Stuff the mushrooms and dunk them in some breadcrumbs :) Bake about 15 minutes at 375. We broiled ours a bit at the end to brown….

•1 pound medium fresh mushrooms

•4 Bacon slices diced

•1/2 cup minced onion, or use part green onion

•2 tablespoons Minced fresh green pepper

•1 teaspoon Salt

•1/8 teaspoon Pepper

•3 ounces Cream cheese, room temperature

•1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs, plain

•1/4 cup Hot water


Clean mushrooms, remove and chop stems; set aside.

Fry bacon in a heavy skillet. Remove with a slotted spoon and set on paper towels to drain. In bacon drippings, saute onion, green pepper, and chopped mushroom stems until tender; drain. Add salt and pepper.

Soften cream cheese; blend in cooked bacon and vegetables. Press mixture firmly into mushroom caps, mounding a bit. Place bread crumbs in a small bowl. Turn filled mushroom caps upside down and press gently in the bread crumbs to coat tops. Place in a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking dish. Add hot water to pan and bake, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes at 325 degrees.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen stuffed mushrooms.
