Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms

So, we continue on the fattening party food express. I had mushrooms, so i decided to stuff them. Guess what, there's like 2 million stuffed mushroom recipes that include some sort of cream cheese varation on the stuffing. I've had about a million of them in my lifetime, so i was hoping to find something a little different. I finally found 1 recipe that didn't say cream cheese.

Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms

These were delicious! I didn't have crimini mushrooms, used button mushrooms, to save time, i used real bacon bits and also added a handful of breadcrumbs to soak up some of the impending grease from all that cheddar and bacon goodness. These flew right off the platter, i didn't even have the chance to taste them at the party.

But you know how that goes, every good chef tastes her food prior to serving, so i had one, ok more like 3, prior to serving. ;) There was some stuffing left over so i formed the stuffing in balls and baked them along with the mushrooms. The stuffing balls didn't look very good, so i just kept those in the kitchen and i ate them later. They didn't look very good, but they sure tasted GREAT!

Of course i forgot to take a photo before they went out, so in the middle of the party, i said oh crap, i need a photo and took one, not a very good one, but those last 4 mushrooms disappeared like as soon as the flash went off. lol.

If you like stuffed mushrooms but would like to change it up for your next party, i HIGHLY reccomend this recipe. :)
