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! :)
This recipe was so easy and everybody absolutely loved them. I can't wait to make them again. Make sure the bacon isn't too crispy.
Another favorite Appy.I make these year round.I cheated and used bacon bits last time.Still good.
These were out of this world, and I'm not even a bacon kind of girl! I doubled(ish) the recipe to 21 pieces (I bought two packages and had a surplus of large caps) - used six slices of bacon, fried them up and drained them, then used a portion of the leftover bacon fat to fry up a small finely diced shallot (instead of onion). Used part stems, but mostly chopped up caps for the filling. After I mixed it all up in a bowl with the cheddar cheese, it seemed (to be honest) kind of heavy and unappetizing - so I took three slices of bread, chopped them up into small (1/4") cubes, threw them on a baking sheet and toasted them in the oven until mostly dried out, then threw them all in with the mix. Best idea ever!! It extends the quantity of filling, plus soaks up all the extra oils. Everyone who ate these loved them - I asked for opinions, and everyone was very shocked that the bread was an add-on on my part. I just imagine they would have been incredibly heavy without it. I'm definitely making these again...and again...and again!
Most excellent tasting stuffed mushrooms! I used the button mushrooms, that is what I had on hand. My family just loved these at Thanksgiving and I will be taking them to our family Christmas dinner. Great recipe, none of the flavors "overtakes" the other, just blend together perfectly!
I used baby portobello stuffing size mushrooms and made these as a side dish. I cooked the bacon in the oven then chopped it. I chopped the onion and mushrooms and added them to the bacon before I realized I hadn't cooked them. So, the bacon was cooked twice and it was fine. I added a tbs of bread crumbs and a tsp of parsley. These were rich and savory. Great for people who love bacon, mushrooms and cheese.
These were a big hit at Thanksgiving. Even the kids, who "hate" mushrooms, inhaled them! I used a bit more bacon, added garlic powder, black pepper and parsley. Instead of the stems, I chopped up some small white button mushroom that needed to be used. Thanks so much for this great recipe, GRNSTR1PE!
Kids and hubby inhaled these! I added garlic and onion powder, cayenne and a little beer to the stems while they were cooking. Delicious and thank you Krista!
SOOOO GOOOD =)
Made as recipe states, wasn't bad.
I have made these as appetizers for parties, and there are never any left! I substituted the cheddar cheese for monteray jalepeno pepper cheese one time, and that was delicious as well.
I love these mushrooms! The first time I made them I followed the recipe exactly, and they were great. Now, every time I make them I do something a little different. Sometimes I add a little fresh chopped spinach or finely diced red bell pepper to the stuffing. Most times I brush the mushroom caps with a little melted butter too. Very yummy.
These were great. The only small problem is that the mushrooms weren't quite done. Next time, I'll bake the mushrooms for a few minutes, then stuff them. The taste was outstanding though.
Turned out great! Used green onion instead of chopped onion. After initially stuffing them, if you have extra, be sure to pile it on! When the cheese melts it makes space. Will probably add a small dash of garlic salt or garlic powder next time around but overall very easy, quick and tasty! Thank you!
Excellent and easy recipe! I added some garlic and it had lots of flavour!
Easy and tasty! Served as an appetizer to our corn and crab chowder dinner.
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving. Although it was very easy to prepare, I was disapointed in the taste.
Followed the recipe exactly and these are just okay, nothing special. Tried it again, adding garlic, parsley, mozz and parm cheese with the cheddar and they were a lot better, but still not great. They were mostly passed by when served at a party and people who had one didn't have a second.
Lovely, I had to add the water to the bottom of the pan to get the mushrooms to come out nice and soft, but everyone loved them and asked for more. I'll make them again.
made exactly like the recipe stated. Delicious!
Served these at a recent party and they were devoured. To save time, I used a food processor to chop up the stems (I was tripling the recipe) and also used real bacon bits instead of cooking and crumbling bacon. Turned out great!
This has quickly become a family favorite since I started making it last Thanksgiving. Well worth the effort! They disappear quickly every time I make them :)
These mushrooms were ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I made them for a Tailgate party hoping they wouldn't be cooled off by the time we arrived however, all 57 large mushrooms were wiped out. (purchased mushrooms from Costco) and I cannot tell you enough how much these were loved ... simply wiped out. People were coming up to me 3-4 hours later saying asking, "Really, what restaurant did you get those at" they loved em!! I did add a large [minced] clove of fresh garlic, minced my onion, added Colby jack and sprayed butter across the mushroom caps prior to cooking. In addition, I took the left over stuffing mix and stuffed my pork tenderloin's with it. I sliced open both tenderloins laying one on the bottom, stuffing the center and placing the other over the top, then sprinkled a tad down the top center ...to die for!!! I bet chicken stuffed with this would be great too. (purchased tenderloins at Sam's) THANKS FOR THIS RECIPE!!
My husband begs me to make these. I have used all different kinds of mushrooms and follow this recipe. Always a crowd pleaser.
Not all of my kids like mushrooms but they all loved this recipe. Perfect with a little bit of ranch to dip them in.
Great Flavor, easy to make, and enjoyed by all! I ran out of the caps but then just layed a small amount on a mushroom and that worked out.
These are so good. I didn't change a thing. How do you go wrong with bacon and cheese.
This recipe is quick & easy, especially if you use precooked bacon or a pouch of real bacon pieces. I made a double recipe and they were gone in minutes! Everyone loved them, but next time I will add some salt to the filling.
Oh YUM! per other reviewers tips, I did use a mellon baller to remove the stems, and baked on a bakers rack, so the mushrooms did not get mushy. Turned out perfect. Thanks
These were delicious! It was like eating a potato skin appetizer in a mushroom.
Very nice! I used shallots and garlic instead of onion. I also added some cayenne. They disappeared at a recent event!! Thank you!
I made this at my daughters birthday party yester and everyone loved it!
I made this for a wedding reception and by the time I got in line, it was completely gone! I have made this numerous times and everyone loves them!
These were delicious. I did have Champignons though, but they came out very delicious! I'll cook those more and more!
These were eaten as fast as I could get them out of the oven! I used real bacon bits and they were great. About the greasy comment - I think it's more of the mushroom juice that gathers at the bottom of the pan. As soon as they are on a serving platter, they don't seem greasy at all!
Yummy! These were not at all what I was searching for but they were awesome. I added a small amount of bread crumbs and I used plain old buttons. All three of our little ones tried them. The two year old ate about 4 of them. We will definitely have these again!
yum everyone I have served them to too them. I make them same as recipe.
My husband I finished these quickly before dinner was ready....They were so good and so easy to make. I will continue making these ones!!
I coated the bottom of the pan with Pam and then shook some garlic powder on in.
Easy to make and taste great!
This is an excellant recipe, I was able to make it early in the day and bake right before my guests arrived. I think it would be good topped with chives when it comes from the oven
This is a dish for the mushroom lover, even me who is mere fan liked this one. I had a couple peices bacon leftover from breakfast and did nit think it was enough so I added some chopped sliced peperoni to the mix, it was great.
Great low-carb snack.
I would definitely make these again. The first time around I added fresh garlic but I felt it was overpowering the other flavors so next time I would delete all together or just put in an extremely small amount. Also, I used ready cooked bacon and couldn't get the pieces small enough. Next time I will try bacon bits which I think would bind better with the flavors. Also will try sharp chedder because I think it needs that little extra kick.
Easy and delicious treat. Used sharp cheddar and they came out great. Also used pre-cooked bacon to cut down on prep time. Thanks for the recipie!
Delicious and easy! I doubled the recipe and used half an onion, cooked low and long before adding the mushroom stems. I also put the mushrooms in the oven to soften a bit before stuffing them. Everyone liked them!
I was expecting more!Before this recepy i made Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms and when i made those bacon cheddar cheese mushrooms he did not want to it it.My advice to try Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms.
My family LOVED this recipe!!! It was exceptionally easy and definitely a crowd pleaser! Would recommend to any mushroom lovers!
Delicious! Great as a side or appetizer. Followed the recipe exactly and came out great. I made this with 2 other recipes from this site, the caramelized chicken and organge cilantro rice. Everything was wonderful!
I've been wanting to make this recipe forever but I am the only person in my household that loves stuffed mushrooms, which means I would be the only person eating them if I made them!! Well, I made the exception tonight and pigged out! These were great...every one! I added a dash of S&P to each. Plus, they're very easy to make! This is a keeper! Thanks Krista!
Good. My hubby liked them. I did use 3 cheeses (parm, cheddar and mozzarella), everything else was the same. I am absolutely in love with cheese but I felt I need to add something else to brighten up the flavors. When I find what that is I could give this 5 stars....but then it wouldn't be the same recipe hehe.
Best mushroom recipe on Allrecipes. Usually add a little extra bacon because I am a bacon lover
I used small button mushrooms, and instead of chopping the stems, I just chopped up extra mushrooms, and these were great. Next time I'll use less bacon, though, mine were a touch salty and greasy, but everyone still loved them!
I have made several times. Great for company, or even as a simple snack. Almost imposible to mess up.
This is a wonderful appetizer, I have passed this recipie along to many of my coworkers and friends and they have LOVED it!
These were delicious! The only things I did differently is, I added some fresh chopped baby spinach and sauteed that with the onion and chopped mushroom stem, and I also did about 1/2 cup cheddar and 1/2 cup smoke gouda. Still would have been delicious either way so I give it 5 Stars!
These were good, but a bit oily (I took the recommendation to lube up the outside of the mushroom).
I just made these last evening for my euchre group. They were a huge hit and were very easy to make. I even used regular mushrooms. There was not one left by the end of the evening!!! I am planning making more for a Super Bowl party at my mom's. Thank you for such a great recipe!
Made this dish for Christmas and was a huge hit!! I would bake it on an elevated rack next time to keep the shrooms from getting soggy.
I love these things. They are making a new Thanksgiving tradition.
I make these mushrooms for get-togethers and they are a BIG hit with my family! I have a big family so I use white mushrooms and it makes more. I usually double or triple the recipe and make them ahead of time so I have them ready to go in the oven and I can serve them hot.
Doubled the mushrooms but not the cheese. Next time I will salt and pepper the caps before stuffing. Used cocnut oil for half the butter. They were great! Had them for dinner entree, made a very generous maindish for two.
Sooo good. I made this a couple of times and will keep this recipe forever. Everyone goes crazy over this delicious, simple appetizer. Thank you Krista.
Served it at Thanksgiving and everyone thought I bought them.
his recipe was excellent. I used the small mushrooms because that is all we had...are those the portebellini's? I dunno. This recipe was also excellen for my mom and I because we are both doing the low carb diet. Instead of regular bacon I used the real bacon bits because let's face it, it was easier lol.
Mmmmm.... scrumptious! Do add a couple of tbsp. of cream cheese to the mix for some added texture (if you don't mind the calories). Very nice though, will definitely add to the weekly regulars.
Husband loved these, was trying them out for a party..be sure to shell out enough of the mushroom in the cap or else you'll have more mushroom than filling :@
This looks so fancy and elegant but it's so easy to make! My guests thought I was a SuperCook! My husband commented that the mushrooms were so nicely cooked that it almost tasted like meat! A nice way to get our guys to eat some veggies >: )
This is a very nice appetizer. I couldn't find crimini's, so I used the portabello mushrooms I had, and just cut them into 4 pieces with a pizza cutter. It was very good. Next time I will use the creminis though. My stuffing kept trying to fall off of my portabellos.
A very nice overall recipe. Followed recipe exactly and they came out good. Everyone liked them.
These are great. I have made them replacing the bacon with 1/4lb Italian sausage (uncooked)and baked for 25min. They turned out excellent as well.
i fixed this recipe for super bowel while my husband made home made pizzas. every one loved what i made over the pizzas. I will make this again and I would reccomend this to every one. one thing that i did to make it perfection is i covered the mushrooms with foil after the time it tells you to cook them and cooked them for about 15 min longer. that way the mushrooms were fully cooked.
These were amazing and so easy!!!! They dissapeared as soon as I placed on the table, and everyone asked for the recipe!! The only change I made was Gouda Cheese insted of cheddar and it tourned out great. thank you for a graet recipe.
Very good stuffed mushroom recipe! I've been trying a lot of them lately, and this has been the best so far.
These mushrooms were quite good. I couldn't find crimini mushrooms so I substituted baby portabellas. I made them for a Christmas eve buffet and everyone liked them. The only problem I had with this recipe was that the mushrooms got somewhat dried and shriveled looking in the over. Next time I think I'll drizzle a little olive oil over them first.
My husband doesn't normally like mushrooms, but he loved these - YUM!!!
We all loved these as a great change from the traditional bread crumbs/stuffing mushrooms. My only change is to cook the caps in a little bacon grease before stuffing to get them to shrink before baking and to keep them moist during baking. Next time I am going to play with different types of Cheddar.
This is an easy and tasty recipe! I used white button mushrooms. Don't be afraid to add extra cheese and bacon if you want. I made 36 mushrooms and they disappeared withing 20 minutes of putting them out! Great recipe. Thank you!
Best appetizer we ever served, to family and friends. this will be in our recipe box forever.
This was fabulous. I didn't have crimini's but needed to use the button mushrooms we had. I had eaten 4 before I even realized it! Hubby ate 2 and said they were very good. Used shallots instead of onions, and packaged (real) bacon bits to save time.
These were pretty good, but need a little something extra like either cream cheese, or a spicy sausage. They are also quite greasy.
Came out very greasy :(
These were just okay. Not bad, but I probably wouldn't make them again.
I made this recipe without altering it, but did not care for it at all. It was rather bland.
Well, this dish is not a keeper. I followed the recipe to a tee and it was nasty. I will never try it again.
so easy to make
YUM, YUM, YUM!
Delicious! I make these in two stages. I make the filling one tiem and stuff and bake when I am ready for them. Yummy!!!!
My husband enjoyed them, but I thought they were to greasy especially when the cooled.
I made these mushrooms as an appetizer tonight and we just loved them!! My husband said to thank you for submitting such a great recipe. It's definitely five stars and a keeper in our house.
These were delicious. I could not find portobello mushrooms, so I used the small button ones. It was a pain to "scoop out" the insides of the mushrooms, but other than that, it was very easy. My family all loved them. I added some fresh garlic and sauteed the bacon and garlic in with the onions and the mushrooms for a few minutes longer...YUMMY!
quick and easy!
Made this to go along with a light dinner we were having because I had the ingredients. I went to try one, and my husband ate them all!!! But he said they were delicious, obviously. Easy to make. I used baby bella mushrooms, because that is wheat I had on hand and made about 14 of them. They did smell very good and were very easy to make. I will definately make them again, mostly so I can try one!
