Jalapeno Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

Let’s talk about party food, shall we?

Stuffed Mushrooms

When I host, or attend and help cook for, a cocktail party I like to think about finger foods and two-bite dishes that are easy to eat, pretty and not too messy.   I like savory dishes that stand up to a variety of cocktails and beers, and nothing does that better than mushrooms.

Stuffed Mushrooms

These mushrooms are stuffed with a mixture of cheeses which is studded with crisp fried bacon and minced jalapenos.  The smoky bacon and the zing from the jalapenos balance with the rich cheese, while the panko topping is a nice crunchy contrast to tender mushroom and creamy filling.

Stuffed Mushrooms

These are a perfect foil to just about any sweet drink, and great with beer.  I used the larger ‘stuffing’ sized mushrooms, but if you made them with standard button mushrooms they would be a lovely ‘pop-in-the-mouth’ bite.  As a bonus, you can easily make these vegetarian by omitting the bacon and using olive oil to soften the veggies for those who avoid meat or pork.

Jalapeno Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms   Yield about 12 large mushrooms

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 pound of large button mushrooms (about 12 caps)
3 strips thick cut bacon, chopped
1 jalapeno, minced
1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
1  clove garlic
1 ounce cream cheese
2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper

Begin by preparing the panko topping.

In a small bowl combine the panko bread crumbs with the melted butter.  Toss until evenly coated.  Set aside.

Heat the oven to 350 F.

Carefully clean and stem the mushrooms.  Set the caps on a small baking sheet.  Chop the stems and set aside.

In a small pan over medium heat cook the chopped bacon until crisp.  Add the chopped vegetables and mushroom stems and cook until softened, about five minutes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside to cool slightly.

In a medium bowl mix the shredded cheese with the cream cheese until well combined.  Add the warm vegetable mixture and mix well.

Divide the filling evenly between the mushrooms.  Top with the buttered panko mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the topping is golden brown.

  • Great party recipe!

  • So you’ve essentially taken my current favorite appetizer recipe (bbq bacon wrapped jalapenos) and reduced the fat content (less room in a mushroom than pepper) while making it about mushrooms. That is HEROIC.

    These were a hit!!! So glad I found them on foodgawker.com. My 3 year old helped to stuff them so that was a plus as well. They were easy to make the day ahead and just refrigerate, then yesterday I added the panko topping and baked. They were quickly demolished!!!! How can you go wrong with cheese, bacon and jalapenos? I’ll be making these for future parties for sure! Thanks for the great recipe.

  • looks super delicious!! i love anything that involves mushroom in it 🙂

  • This sounds divine. Everything I’ve been cooking lately has had mushrooms. I luckily have everything for this in my fridge so i’ll definitely have to give this a try! =)

    These were AWESOME! I had a bunch of gigantic ‘shrooms leftowver and didn’t know what to do with them…and I found this recipe! So glad I did, YUMMY!!! I did add some green onions to the mix, not cooked in the pan, and they were excellent in it. Thank you so much for this recipe, I will definitely be making them again. 🙂
