Stuffed Mushroom Appetizers

Total Time

Great little nibbles! Make vegetarian by putting in some corn and vegemite, or just leave the bacon out. You can add some onion and garlic maybe too; perhaps some thyme would be also nice. You can stuff them a few hours before baking. From Women's Weekly, not sure which one. Aussie measurements. I use cherry tomatoes and put a slice on top.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove stems from mushrooms.
  2. Remove rind from bacon, chop bacon finely.
  3. Heat pan, add bacon, cook until golden brown.
  4. Remove pan from heat, add grated cheese, mustard and breadcrumbs, mix well.
  5. Add lightly beaten egg and milk, parsley and salt and pepper, mix until well combined.

  8. Place one slice of cheese and one tomato segment on each mushroom.
  9. Place mushrooms on oven trays, bake in moderately hot oven 8 minutes or until cheese has melted.

Very nice appetizer. I halved the recipe for DH and myself. I used Canadian bacon and topped with hot pepper cheese instead of cheddar cheese. Delish! Made For Auz/NW Swap #18.

Delicious stuffed mushrooms! I was out of bacon, otherwise followed the recipe. The flavor was good, but I bet it's scrumptious with the bacon added. Can't wait to make these again.
