Stuffed Mushrooms

  • 2 boxes fresh mushrooms (about 16).
  • 4 slices thick sliced bacon fried and crumbled
  • 1/3 c. onions, chopped fine
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 4 drops red pepper sauce
  • 1 T. flour
  • 1/4 c. half and half cream
  • 3 T. shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Wash mushrooms. I use a melon scoop to remove the stem and slightly hollow out the mushrooms.
  2. Using a knife (pastry blender worked great) chop the stems fine. I throw approx.. 1/4 of stems away. It is just too much to use to refill the mushrooms. Add chopped onions, salt, pepper, and red pepper sauce.  Microwave on high until mushrooms and onions are tender (2-3 mins).  Stir in flour, bacon bits and then cream until well blended, Microwave another 2-3 minutes stirring once or twice. Stir in cheese.
  3. Place the mushrooms on a paper towel on a dinner plate. Microwave 1-1/2 mins.  Fill with stuffing and microwave again 1-2 mins. Serve warm.

I do step one and two 30-45 mins before I am ready to serve them. Then 5 mins. before serving I do step 3 and it is not as big a deal to get ready to serve.
