Bacon Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

These bite-sized appetizers are everything a stuffed mushroom should be: savory, tangy, meaty, and a tad crunchy.

Yields : 24 Servings

Serving Size: 1 stuffed mushroom

Ingredients:

24 medium to large mushrooms-cleaned and stems removed
8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
4 ounces of good blue cheese
2 teaspoons horseradish
2 teaspoons milk
1 garlic clove, minced or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
8 ounces of good bacon, cooked and minced
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Directions

Preheat oven to 350˚. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and lay out your mushrooms stem side up. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the cream cheese, blue cheese, horseradish and milk. Add the garlic and bacon, mixing well.

Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly between the mushrooms, then sprinkle the bread crumbs evenly over the mushrooms. Bake mushrooms in a 350˚ oven for 18-20 minutes or until tops are browned, and let them rest 5 minutes before eating.
