Bacon Blue Cheese stuffed mushrooms

Bacon Blue Cheese stuffed mushrooms

24 servings
Garlic/Onionish Salty

ingredients

  • 8 oz bacon
  • 24 large button mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 oz Castello® Double Crème Blue, room temperature
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives, minced

preparation

1. Cut bacon into small pieces and cook in heavy bottom Dutch oven or pan over medium high heat until crisp.

2. Transfer cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Discard all oil from pan except for one tablespoon.

3. Clean any dirt off mushrooms with a dry brush. Slice the very bottom of the stem off and discard. Gently press the remaining part of the stalk until it snaps away from the cap. Set aside, and chop.

4. Cook chopped stems over medium heat in the remaining bacon fat for 3-5 minutes, then add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.

5. Combine cooked stems and garlic with the Double Crème Blue, cream cheese, chives and cooked bacon in a bowl.

6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fill each mushroom cap with a small spoonful of cheese mixture. Do not overfill.

7. Cook in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese starts to melt. Serve warm and garnish with additional chives.
