These mushrooms melt in your mouth. A friend of ours does not like mushrooms. I made these one night, and he ate half the plate. Nice enough for a dinner party, and super easy to make.

- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 green onions, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 5 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
- 1⁄4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

I made these exactly as posted and was rewarded with a nice twist on stuffed mushrooms. The addition of the bacon and cheddar really added a lot of flavor, and they were fairly easy to put together. I will definitely make these again! Made for Fall PAC 2012.
