This recipe was a hit at my daughter's baby shower. I made a change by adding 2 pieces of toasted bread diced small. It helped absorb some of the oils. I also cooked the mushroom caps in a little olive oil before stuffing them so they were nice and tender when done. Great tasting mushrooms!
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving. Although it was very easy to prepare, I was disapointed in the taste.
These were very good . I might suggest that when a recipe calls for crumbled bacon, that it is much easier to slice the bacon into small pieces before you cook them .
Fantastic! These were an AWESOME change from the recipe that I usually use. My entire family loved these (excluding my non-"fungus" friendly brother). I used real bacon bits & I skipped the oven step & microwaved them for 5 minutes...perfect! I suggest using a melon baller to remove the stem, it makes it so much easier. Thank you Krista, you're a "shroom" godess!
I am a college student, and it's always hard to find snacks that are quick and satisfying. I prepared these mushrooms for Valentine's dinner, and my boyfriend LOVED them. He's not an onion fan though, so I omitted them completely and they were still good! I added garlic powder to the sauteing mushrooms for extra flavor (my kitchen never smelled so good!) I used regular white button mushrooms (because college students need to get the best deals they can!) and used a melon baller to scoop out the insides, which made it soooo easy. Like many others, I used extra mushrooms instead of the stems, but since I was short on time and they were on sale, I used pre-sliced mushrooms for the filling, which cut down on my chopping time. I would also recommend using a mini chopper to chop up the bacon. My boyfriend cleaned up the mushrooms and made me make more a few hours after dinner! This is definitely a keeper and I'm going to go make some for myself right now! =) Thanks for the recipe!!
great recipe - I added a small container of cream cheese to the mixture before stuffing the mushrooms. I also used real bacon bits which saved time. They were a hit and the first appetizer finished off.
These mushrooms were outstanding. I also chopped up mushrooms instead of the stems. Instead of using the butter I just added the onion and mushroom mixture to the bacon pan and I also added some fresh garlic and a little bit of parsley. Everyone loved it. Next time, I need to make a lot more. Couldn't keep them on the plate!
Whenever I have company, they go nuts over these, and my husband says they are the best stuffed mushrooms he's ever had. I am so sick of mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese! Sometimes I add a bit of freshly ground black pepper to the filling; it goes well with the other ingredients. You may want to watch out for the juice- I burn my tongue every time! :)
