{Recipe} Bacon & Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Well I realized recently that it's been a while since a shared a recipe! And that I better fix that! On my last grocery shopping trip I bought stuff for some yummy stuffed mushrooms, a favorite!  It was after all my birthday last week so why not!  This recipe came from the mushroom container itself!! 

Bacon & Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

8oz cream cheese, softened
1 sm finely diced onion
4-6 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled
{reserve bacon fat}
16oz mushrooms
Shredded cheese
8 mushroom stems, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350.  Clean mushrooms, remove stems. Saute onion & mushroom stems in bacon fat until tender.  Drain off excess fat.  Mix crumbled bacon, onion & stems with softened cream cheese until smooth. Stuff each mushroom cap with cream cheese mixture.  Place in a shallow baking dish.  Top with shredded cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or can use broiler for 10-15 minutes.  Serve hot.

*A few notes...
(1) This time I used dehydrated onion to see how it would work.  Worked like a charm without crying my eyes out! Yay for a shortcut!  
(2) When you mix creamy cream cheese with bacon fat you get a 'rich' flavor.  I drained off some fat before sauteing my stems and onions so just know you might need to make adjustments with the bacon fat!
(3) I cooked this batch in my toaster oven with the broil setting and they turned out great!

Enjoy!! Let me know if you try these out!!

Happy Monday!
