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

Add shallots and garlic to the pan and cook until softened.
Add chopped mushroom stems and continue to cook, stirring regularly, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
In a bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy.
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.
