How to Make Easy Bacon and Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
The full recipe is at the bottom of this post.
First, pre-heat the oven to 375F. Then, remove the mushroom stems, clean them, salt the tops a bit. Bake them for 15 minutes on 375F. I put three strips of bacon on a separate cookie sheet and bake it along with the mushrooms. Throw in an extra piece of bacon or more if you want a piece to munch on yourself. Oh, how I love bacon!
Meanwhile, combine softened cream cheese, blue cheese, bacon crumbles, scallions, mayonnaise and some seasonings and fill the mushrooms when they come out of the oven.
Finally, bake the filled mushrooms for 15 minutes. You’ll have a mouth-watering appetizer to serve your guests. The guys in particular will love this! Bacon and blue cheese? Oh yeah!
