Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

I was at the grocery store yesterday and they had large capped mushrooms on markdown because they were just slightly past their prime. Whenever I see produce markdowns I snatch them up and come up with a recipe to use them up like this one : Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms.

Saving money on produce, while not impossible, it is not always easy. Produce is our biggest expense for our household. I use coupons on most of my groceries so that I can spend more on produce.

So I pulled this recipe together from ingredients I already had on hand – cheese and cream cheese that were in the freezer, onion, garlic and spices. Easy.

If you don’t like mushrooms you can totally bake up the filling in a casserole dish and eat it that way. 2 of my kids and myself love mushrooms while my husband and 2 of the kids do not, so I did half of this recipe as stuffed mushrooms and the other half as a dip and served it with some baked pita chips.

  1. I also like to take the stems and chop them up and saute them with the onion and garlic. This way there is no waste and it is delish!
