Stuffed Mushrooms

Hi and thanks for stopping by! We have had a cool and rainy fall here, and that has contributed to a bumper crop of mushrooms! In addition to Hungarian Mushroom Soup, here’s another one of my favorite ways to enjoy them:

Ingredients
  • 3 cups mushrooms (stems and caps)
  • 6 slices cooked, chopped bacon
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 package of cream cheese (8 oz. )
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Farenheit
  2. Remove the mushroom stems and chop. Sauté in butter.
  3. Arrange the mushroom caps in a buttered baking dish.
  4. Mix the chopped bacon with the fried, chopped mushroom stems and the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.
  5. Carefully stuff each mushroom cap with mixture.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until the mushrooms turn golden brown.
  7. Cool for 5-10 minutes before enjoying.

Bonus: Not all of our mushrooms have cute little caps to stuff, so we also experimented with chopping them all up, sautéeing them, and adding them to the filling recipe, and it is tasty as a simple spread on crackers as well (grain-free of course)! No need to bake the spread. Topped with an olive it becomes an entirely new appetizer! Two for one!

Illness and even death can occur from ingesting wild mushrooms. Any person who ingests mushrooms or any other potentially dangerous fungi does so at their own risk. When in doubt, throw it out(side)!
