    Tish's Note:

    I was looking for make ahead appetizer for the holidays and found this one. It's hard enough during those times to get the "meal" on the table. I thought I'd make it a bit easier on the appetizers!

      Mushrooms, Bacon, Cheese, Onion.. My favourite foods all in one!! These turned out absolutely delicious. Next time though, I may salt the mushroom caps first to give the mushrooms a bit more flavour. You get a hit of wonderful cheesy bacon, and then a rather bland mushroom. Still tasty though and will be making these often!

      I have been cooking these for 30 years, Different options sprinkle mushrooms with a little garlic, add some Greek yogurt, chopped stems mixed with cheese and bread crumbs, can use chopped courgettes &/or chopped nuts, sometimes I leave out the bacon. Or I do 3 Different options. Use different cheese & mix them changes everything.

      These are very good!! I cooked a chopped mushroom along with the stems and onions (I broke it when removing the stem) so I had a little extra 'filling'. These were so simple to make and the combo of the onions, mushrooms, cheese and bacon was perfect. Made for a Super Bowl party and they were a big hit!
