Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms
These Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms are the perfect app for your next party! Who doesn’t love this cheesy and bacon filled deliciousness in the bite-sized perfection of mushroom caps?!
These little guys are packed with so much flavor, they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser. The big flavor comes mostly from the bacon. Bacon just seems to make everything better doesn’t it? And we’re not just talking any bacon. I’m using Smithfield Hometown Original Bacon– smoked and cured to perfection, Smithfield is available in a wide variety of flavors and cuts and is my go-to for adding incredible taste to so many dishes.
I’ve talked before about how much I love Smithfield Bacon, and how versatile it is. I even used it to create pancake breakfast sandwiches, which are a great solution when you’re serving a crowd for brunch.
Through the holidays and beyond, you better believe, I’ll be turning to Smithfield for that extra special something in all of my meals. From breakfast to appetizers to the main meal, Smithfield slow-smoked bacon, breakfast sausage and classic holiday hams, are sure to make this the tastiest holiday season yet!
I’m always looking for simple, tasty appetizers that will wow my guests and these bacon stuffed mushrooms sure do the trick! Invite your friends over for drinks and appetizers and prepare to watch these mushrooms disappear.
Feel free to prepare these ahead of time. Simply stuff the mushrooms, place them on the baking pan, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate. Cook them up right before serving, as they are best nice and warm. So, dang, delicious. Enjoy!
