Blue Cheese Filled Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms

So, while I am on the road, I thought I would share with you a recipe I submitted to a grilling contest sponsored by the Pioneer Woman. This recipe came about while I was grilling a steak that I topped with blue cheese. {I’ll be sharing that recipe soon, too!} It just randomly came to me and I had all the ingredients on hand. So after I finished with the steak, I kept the grill on and made these Blue Cheese Filled Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms. Incredible! Amazing. My new favorite appetizer or main course. Forreals, guys. If you think people won’t like mushrooms, just fill ’em with cheese, wrap ’em in bacon and throw ’em on the grill. Problem solved.

A few things you should know about this recipe:

1. There are only 5 main ingredients…yes 5! And you won’t believe how delicious they are!
2. You’re going to have to wrap the bacon around the mushroom and stick a toothpick into them through the side…not through the bottom or top! Use as many toothpicks as you want if you’re unsure.
3. Make sure you grease your grill well and preheat it, but not too hot! You don’t want that bacon to burn…just get crispy.
4. If the bacon sticks to the grill, don’t try to flip it! Leave it on another minute or so and try again.

I think that’s about it! Give these a whirl asap! You won’t be disappointed! See you in Utah!
