Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms

One of my favorite ways to relax on a Sunday afternoon is by enjoying yummy snacks while watching football. I pinned this recipe off my best friend last week, and thought it would be perfect for the playoffs this weekend. I recreated it without the shaved butter to try and save on some of the calorie-bomb overload that is this deliciousness.


1 lb. of reduced fat (or reduced sodium) bacon
1 lb. of mushrooms, stems removed
1 bulb of garlic (the recipe called for 2, but 1 was more than enough), diced
8 oz. of monterrey jack cheese, shredded
Olive oil
Pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Peel and dice the garlic (I used a little less than a whole bulb which was more than enough) and saute in a pan on medium heat in olive oil.
Rinse and de-stem the mushrooms and lay out on a greased baking sheet.
Shred the cheese with a cheese grater
Sprinkle the garlic in the mushroom cups, then stuff with the cheese
Wrap the bacon around the stuffed mushrooms and secure with a toothpick
Sprinkle with pepper to taste
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes until bacon is cooked to your liking
