This five-ingredient recipe comes from the bacon pros at Nueskes meats in Wisconsin.
bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
fresh mushrooms (about 12 oz.)
cream cheese, softened
shredded sharp cheddar or smoked Gouda cheese
minced garlic (optional)
- In a 12-inch skillet, cook bacon until almost crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon from skillet; discard fat. Drain bacon on paper towels. Set aside.
- Clean mushrooms. Remove stems from mushrooms; discard. Set tops aside.
- In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Stir in reserved bacon and, if you like, garlic. Spoon mixture into mushroom tops, and place them on a greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
- Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Make Ahead Tip
- Stuffed mushrooms taste best hot from the oven, but they're still a great make-ahead snack. Assemble the mushrooms up to 24 hours ahead of your party, then store them, covered, in the refrigerator until you're ready to bake them.
