I made these stuffed mushrooms for the first time for Sarah's baby shower. Both Sarah and I both like to get the bacon blue cheese burger at Medici and so when I saw this recipe I knew it'd be perfect for her shower. I loved them! You do have to like blue cheese to really appreciate them, but if you do they're awesome! Definately worthy of the favorites binder!
Bacon Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
(recipe from allrecipes.com)
3 stripes bacon
2 pkgs medium to small mushrooms
1 T. butter + melted butter for dipping
1/2 onion diced
1 clove garlice, sliced
3 oz cream cheese
3 oz blue cheese
1/3 cup bread crumbs
Cook bacon strips in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy; drain on paper towel.
Remove stems from mushrooms. Set caps aside and chop stems.
Add butter to skillet with bacon greese. When melted, stir in mushroom stems, onion, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until the onions caramelize. Once onion mixture has reached a deep, rich brown color, place into a blender along with bacon, cheeses, and bread crumbs. Blend on low until ingredients are roughly chopped and evenly combined.
Dip mushroom caps in melted butter and place on baking sheet. Stuff cheese mixture into caps and cook in preheated oven until bubbly and lightly browned. About 10 minutes. Serve warm.
