Ingredients



  • 6 slices Kunzler bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

  • 10 large fresh mushrooms (about 12 oz.)
  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar or smoked Gouda cheese
  • 1/2-1 tsp. minced garlic (optional)

Directions



Step 1

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.

Step 2

Clean mushrooms. Remove stems from mushrooms; discard. Set tops aside.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Bake in a 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Notes



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.
