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
24 large fresh mushrooms 1 carton (8 ounces) reduced-fat spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese 4 green onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup bacon bits, divided
- Remove stems from mushrooms and set caps aside; discard stems or save for another use. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, blue cheese, onions, garlic and 1/4 cup bacon bits. Stuff into mushroom caps, a scant tablespoonful in each.
- 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.
