Stuffed Bacon Mushrooms

The other day I had a request for these bad boys, thanks to my healthy appetite. Unfortunately Hubs didn’t take me seriously so I decided to make them on my own as a side to a juicy steak and coleslaw salad. Normally we make these as appetizers but but my cravings had another plan this week.

  1. Can’t go wrong with this winning combination! These fantastic bite-size treats won’t last long at my place…thanks for sharing!!


  2. on your ingredients you say 1/2 small bread crumbs, 1/2 what ?

    • I will have to update that; thanks for bringing that to my attention. 1/2 of a cup! 🙂

      • You haven’t updated it yet and it’s been over 2 years, lol.

      • I had no idea what you were referring to but after some searching I realized it was the amount of breadcrumbs I listed in the comments. Luckily there were only a couple so it was easy to see. I did update this but I see my edits didn’t take. I double checked; it has been updated. Thanks for the heads up!
