This weeks recipe is Keto Bacon 3 Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms. These are either great appetizers or could even be a side dish which is how we used them. They are pretty rich and filling and one goes a long way in satisfying you.
Stuffed mushrooms are an appetizer that have been popular for decades, and for good reason! They are bite sized, look fancy, and are so very delicious… My bacon 3-cheese stuffed mushrooms are restaurant- worthy stuffed with cream cheese, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and of course who could forget bacon! These are so simple and delicious, you could even make a whole meal out of them depending on what ingredients you use.
Few things in life give me more joy than simplicity when cooking. A mushroom cap stuffed with a glorious mixture and baked until it is golden brown and sizzling meets all the no-nonsense requirements! These are perfect for a party time platter, but also excellent for everyday use, or as an indulgent treat.
This recipe starts with mushroom caps. You want to remove the stems by popping them out with your fingers. The mushrooms are filled with a mixture of bacon, three types of cheese, parsley, garlic and seasoning. After the mixture goes into the mushrooms you bake the mushrooms until they’re tender and browned. Then serve and enjoy. What could be easier?
This would be delightful with any combination of cheeses and meats, ground beef, Italian sausage, ham, or any combination would also be excellent here.
A Few Tips from SARAH’S DESK:
WHAT KIND OF MUSHROOMS ARE BEST FOR STUFFED MUSHROOMS?
I like to use regular white button mushrooms for my stuffed mushrooms. They have a mild flavor the pairs perfectly with the savory filling. They are also readily available in most grocery stores, and are usually loose for choosing the size that you would prefer. Be sure to choose mushrooms that are roughly the same size so that they cook evenly.
HOW DO YOU CLEAN MUSHROOMS?
The best way to clean mushrooms is to use a damp paper towel to gently rub dirt from each mushroom. It is best not to soak them in water, as they can absorb water, and become mushy.
A Few more things….
If you don’t have parsley on hand, try chives, thyme, or green onions instead.
Stuffed mushrooms usually have a crispy Panko bread crumb topping… Because we are focusing on low-carb eating, the Parmesan cheese acts as the bread crumb topping and this provides a delicious crispness.
If you would like to you can also save the stems of your mushrooms, and chop them very finely to add a dose of vegetables to other dishes, or even to put into the stuffed mushrooms themselves.
FOLLOW-UP TASTE TEST by C.J.
Well this recipe was delicious and we lived with it for several days. Each mushroom is really filling so I found that eating one or two was enough. On our second batch we toned down the garlic a bit and it was a little better, but that of course is a personal choice. We hope you enjoy this recipe.
