Fun Food For Festive Feasting - Recipe 4


Posting all of these recipes is sure putting me in a party mood - and making me HUNGRY! Who would have thought that there were so many different types of appetizers? We've featured ones made from puff pastry, cute little cheese balls, a warm yummy spread - a far cry from the squirt cheese and crackers of days gone by!

Today's recipe combines smooth, warm blue cheese, earthy mushrooms and smokey bacon - oh yes, bacon! Doesn't everything taste better with bacon? AND they can be made in advance, refrigerated, then baked when it's PARTY TIME! So go on, get your YUM-YUM on!

Blue Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese 4 green onions, chopped

    2. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining bacon bits. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Yield: 2 dozen.

        The funny thing is, I was looking for a recipe just like this one last night, but decided to go with the family favorite which is which is similar, sans bacon.
