Stuffed mushrooms: one of the best and easiest appetizers ever. Especially delicious when cheese, turkey bacon and bbq sauce is involved too!
1/2yellow onionfinely diced
12portobello mushrooms meant for stuffing
1 1/4cupsgrated cheddar cheese
3oz.softened cream cheese
salt & pepperto taste
12slicesButterball Turkey Bacon
1/2cupfavorite brand BBQ sauce
In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic until browned. While onions are cooking, wash and remove stems from mushrooms. In a small bowl, stir cheeses, salt and pepper together. Pour cooked onions into cheese mixture and stir. Stuff about 1 tablespoon filling into each mushroom cavity. Wrap 1 slice Butterball Turkey Bacon around each mushroom, securing with a toothpick. Place under hot broiler or onto hot grill and cook until bacon is cooked to your liking, basting with BBQ sauce and turning occasionally. Serve warm.
*I like to grill these mushrooms face down first so the filling gets sealed in by the seared bacon. Some filling might ooze out, but it should be minimal.
