A simple cream cheese filling is used to stuff mushrooms before they are wrapped in bacon and baked in the oven, ideal for an appetizer, snack or party finger food.

This is an excellent appetizer that was very well received by my guests. However, I’m not quite sure where you get 20 mushrooms large enough to handle 16oz of cream cheese. I used what I consider an appropriate appetizer size mushroom (2” in diameter) and I made over 50 and still had some cheese mixture left over. In the future, I will use this amount of ingredients for 60 mushrooms which I consider 20 servings @ 3 each per serving. For a smaller crowd, cut the ingredients in half. Per other reviewers, I placed a large rack on the baking sheet to elevate the mushrooms and keep them separated from the bacon grease and water that’s released from the mushrooms. - 08 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I love this recipe, but could not give it 5 stars because of the changes I made for the second batch. I added some imitation crab meat and some garlic powder to the cream cheese mixture. I also precooked the bacon about 1/2 way before wrapping the mushroom. We liked it much better with our modifications. Thanks for the post. - 15 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
