  1. Yum, double yum. LOVE stuffed mushrooms. Will have to try these, although I find it hard to stray from my tried and true blue cheese recipe. :-)

  2. Yum! Sounds a lot like what I make, only I use a small can of crabmeat instead of the bacon.

  7. I modified this on Christmas day- I mixed 1/3c. creamcheese with gr. onion, bacon, grated cheddar and a little seasoning, then tossed Panko crumbs with Italiano seasoning, parmesan cheese and melted butter, sprinkled the mixture on top and baked them until the crumbs were nice and toasty on top. Delish!
    (note: you can ensure the mushrooms bake fully by zapping them in the microwave for a minute (or less) before stuffing them)
