Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms
So many times a year I make appetizers, and really want to wow not only guests but myself. Having some winning appetizer recipes in your repertoire really does help. I love making appetizer dip recipes like my Jalapeño Popper Dip and Hot Cheesy Crab Dip.
Yet these Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms are the perfect appetizer for your next party!
These little guys are packed with so much flavour in every one, they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser.
It reinforces that bacon seems to make every recipe better, my Bacon Wrapped Tater Tot Cheese Bombs prove that and so does this recipe.
How to make bacon stuffed mushrooms
This appetizer recipe combines cheese, bacon, onion and garlic. The mixture filled into mushroom caps is delicious, and bite-sized to make the perfect finger food appetizer. Just mix, stuff and broil – they are an easy recipe to make and take.
When making these Bacon and cheese stuffed mushrooms, prepare to watch them disappear and fast.
Also, feel free to prepare these ahead of time. Simply stuff the mushrooms, place them on the baking pan, and cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Then you can cook them up right before serving, as they are best nice and warm.
Sometimes I’ve taken them prepared and uncooked, and popped them into my gusts oven to finish right before serving. The smell filling the room is an excellent precursor to the deliciousness to come.
