  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled

Instructions

  • Using a soft mushroom brush or a damp cloth, clean mushrooms to rid of any grit or dirt.

  • Add blue cheese, mushroom mixture, crisp bacon, and green onions. Stir to combine.
  • Arrange mushroom caps gills side down on a baking sheet and lightly brush with olive oil. 
  • Bake in a 400 F oven for about 4 to 5 minutes or just until mushrooms start to leak. 
  • Turn mushroom caps to cavity side up and using a small spoon, fill with stuffing mixture. 
  • Return to oven and bake at 400 F for another 10 minutes or until filling is heated through and tops are golden brown.
