Ummm… Yum! Have you ever had cream cheese and bacon stuffed mushrooms? If not, you are really missing out, they are so delicious! That is if you like mushrooms. I used to not care for them at all, but since growing up, I love them in just about everything!
There are many different kinds of mushrooms, and you can buy them in their original form or as a powder. In fact, the organic mushroom powder can be easily added to any mushroom dish, as it will add to the flavor and it will create a nutritional powerhouse. One such example is the Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder from Nature’s Rise which is a popular dietary supplement that is said to provide a host of health benefits. Lion’s mane mushrooms are believed to improve cognitive function and memory, and this powder can be added to smoothies, soups, and sauces, or used as a dietary supplement. It has a mild taste and can be used in many different recipes.
However, I usually just use what my local grocery store carries. The ones I used in this recipe are medium brown ones (sorry, don’t know the name!). But, any mushrooms will do. Just don’t get the small ones because those might be too small to stuff! But, the choice is yours 😉

Cream Cheese And Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms
- Whole Mushrooms (About 16 Medium/Large)
- Cream Cheese (3/4 package)
- Johnny’s Salt (To Taste)
- Bacon (3 pcs.)
- Preheat oven to 350
- Cook bacon until crisp
- Soften Cream Cheese in the microwave for about 20 seconds (keep checking and add more seconds if you want it softer)
- Carefully pull out the mushroom stems (you can either throw away the stems or cut them up into tiny pieces and use them to stuff the mushrooms!)
- After the bacon has cooled, take a fork or spoon and press down on the bacon to break it up into tiny little bacon pieces
- Mix Cream Cheese, bacon bits (mushroom stem pieces if you are including them in the mixture), and Johnny’s salt, in a bowl
- Spoon the mixture into the mushrooms
- Put mushrooms onto a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 5-8 minutes
