I love stuffed mushrooms, they’re just the happiest vessels for whatever you want to put inside. These are made with spinach, cheese, and bacon – which happens to be one of my favorite flavor trio’s. These cheese and bacon stuffed mushrooms are tasty and filling, so be sure to give them a try.
This recipe is pretty fast to prepare as a side dish for dinner, or a snack when a friend’s drop by. To make it come together even easier just make pre-cook the bacon then also reserve the grease until it’s time. If you’re avoiding cheese then try replacing with more egg for a quiche-like version.
