Bacon & Onion Stuffed Mushrooms

These little beauties are GREAT for a Superbowl party!! Easy to whip up and your husband will THANK YOU!!! I mean, seriously, bacon, onion, mushrooms and cream cheese?! WHY YES!!

Prepare the mushrooms by removing the stems. Save the stems for soups! Here is a tip for you though… do NOT wash mushrooms with water. They soak it up and are yuck. Just use a damp towel and wipe the mushrooms down!

Start with chopping up the bacon. Add the onion and garlic to the cooking bacon. PS… you can use turkey bacon if you are not into pork bacon! 🙂


Once the bacon, onion, and garlic are cooked, place on a paper towel to soak up all the extra grease. Take as much of the grease off as possible!

Chop up a handful of washed cilantro. Add the bacon, onion, cilantro to a room temp block of cream cheese.

Next stuff the mushrooms.


While those are making mix up the Horseradish Ranch Dip.

ENJOY! Again, your husband will be so happy! These are an S for my Trim Healthy Mama buddies!!
