Mushrooms stuffed to the brim and then some.

1-bacon-and-veggie-stuffed-mushrooms

Have you ever arrived at a party or get-together a little bit late when the appetizers have been sitting out for a while?

Unless the appetizers are being kept warm somehow, they tend to cool off pretty quickly.

This is one of those appetizers that’s still delicious when it’s at room temperature.

These mushrooms are stuffed to the brim and then some with a combination of vegetables, bacon, cheese and panko bread crumbs.

You know when each ingredient is good on its own, it’s going to taste really good when they are all combined.

Here are more appetizers you may like “Twice-Baked Browned Butter and Cheese Potato Cups“, “Sautéed Mushrooms, Pepperoni & Bell Peppers” and “Brie and Olive Tapenade Nachos“.

These overstuffed mushrooms make a wonderful appetizer, side dish or light main dish.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

  9. To the bowl, add bacon bits (dice the bacon if necessary), tomatoes, mozzarella and panko bread crumbs. Stir together.

  10. Stuffing the Mushrooms - Gently stuff the mushrooms with the filling so that the stuffing is in the shape of a mound on top of the mushrooms.  There should be enough stuffing to “overstuff” each mushroom.

  11. Place each stuffed mushroom on an ungreased cookie sheet.  

  12. Bake uncovered in a preheated oven until the cheese melts (about 10 to 15 minutes).
