Bacon and cheddar stuffed mushrooms

You mention mushrooms and my ears perk up.  I love them.  I could eat them really any which way you prepare them.  I could eat them in a boat.  I could eat them with a goat.  But my favorite way to eat them is stuffed with all kinds of goodness.  

I recently got my very first food processor and love throwing stuff in there to see what tastes good together.  I came up with this combo one day and now it's my absolute favorite stuffed mushroom recipe.  Hope you like it!


Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms

      • 20 large button mushrooms w/stems 
      • 1 sleeve Saltines
      • 3-4 oz sharp white Cheddar cheese
      • 3 slices bacon cooked until crispy then crumbled
      • 15 roasted almonds
      • 1 clove garlic
      • 1 tsp dried parsley
      • 1 tsp flax seeds (optional)

Clean mushrooms and pop out the stems.  Put stems and rest of ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.  Any extra topping can be saved in the freezer for your next batch!

Top each mushroom with a heaping teaspoon of the mixture.  Place on a cookie sheet and bake in a 400° oven for about 15 minutes or until the topping looks golden brown.

 These are best when eaten right away.  I can only guess that won't be a problem.  Enjoy!
