Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

Nothing like being home for the holidays! Bring on the food, family, friends and football (though not in that order :-))! I absolutely LOVE Thanksgiving, and this year is turning out to be no different! My mom surprised us this year with a new approach to the traditional stuffed mushrooms that my aunt usually makes. She opted for Wind & Willow’s Bacon Stuffed Mushroom Appetizer Mix. This was super EASY, check out the ingredients:

Ingredients

First, we combined 8 ounces of low-fat cream cheese with the mix in the box.

Cream Cheese and Mix

I blended them together with a spatula, and since the cream cheese was already soft, the process was SUPER easy.

Next, I had to wash and de-stem the mushrooms. Once this was done I place them in a pie pan (cause most of the baking pans in my parents’ house are in use today), and spooned about a tablespoon of the mix into them.

Then it was time to add the topping, also, from the box (so EASY). I sprinkled on a little topping for each mushroom. Once this was done, the mushrooms were ready to bake.

Ready for the Oven

It was then into the oven at 400°F for 12 minutes, or until the mushrooms browned.

Ready to Serve

These were totally delicious, but they got me to thinking, what else would work. The filling tasted a lot like cream cheese mixed with Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Recipe Soup and Dip Mix, if you added some bacon. The topping was a a cheesy breadcrumb mix. Next time, I think I’ll make them this way. You could also literally put stuffing in the stuffed mushroom, that would also be DELICIOUS! So many options. Well, I have to go check the turkey!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving, and…

Bon Appetit!
