I shouldn't take the credit for these because this weekend was actually the first time I've ever made them. This recipe comes from a family friend, Linda Wintch. She used to make these for us when we worked at Elliott's, and for the past couple years we've made them for nearly every get-together. Seriously.We always have these with Christmas dinner, so add them to your list of appetizers for this Christmas! They are delish. And super easy! (Our fave).
2-3 cartons fresh, whole mushrooms
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese (have you noticed yet we love cream cheese?)
4-5 strips bacon (cooked and crumbled)
Some diced onion. I don't know how much. I'd say we chopped up less than 1/4 of a small onion. Maybe 4-5 tablespoons. I know this isn't an exact measurement. But it's not a big deal.
De-stem and wash all mushrooms.
Pat mushrooms dry.
In a sauce pan, saute the onion in olive oil.
In a bowl, mix cream cheese, onion, and bacon with a hand-mixer.
Fill mushrooms with cream cheese mixture.
Dip each mushroom in butter then bread crumbs and place on baking sheet.
Bake at 350* for 15-20 minutes or until mushroom is soft.
Yum! I want to make more just looking at these pictures (and sorry there aren't pictures of every step).
