These bacon and blue cheese stuffed mushrooms are SO yummy!!!
This Christmas was actually the second time I've made this recipe but only the first time I got to try it for myself...my family has a tendency of over preparing for holiday appetizers, so these mushrooms never made it out while I was still there last year [aka my sister hoarded them at the back of the fridge until everyone left ;) ]. But they got phenomenal reviews so I had to see for myself.
Side note: I made up for it this year and ate more than my fair share. They really are so yummy. And surprisingly easy! And also low-carb if you are looking for a good low carb or diabetic friendly appetizer.
They are a little messy to transport once stuffed so this year I pre mixed the blue cheese and bacon stuffing and just filled my pre cleaned out mushrooms once we were there. If that's an option for you if you are bringing these on the go I would recommend doing it that way to save some mess!
What You'll Need:
16 Oz package of whole baby Bella mushrooms (2 8oz packages)
8oz (1 small tub) reduced fat spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
4 green onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup bacon bits
How you'll do it:
1. Clean and remove stems from mushrooms.
2. In a bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients.
3. Once thoroughly mixed, stuff into mushrooms.
4. Place on a greased baking pan and sprinkle with bacon bits.
5. Bake uncovered at 375 for 18-22 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
