Jalapeno Popper Mushrooms Appetizer
3 Slices Bacon (optional)
Cooking Spray
2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
1 Small Pkg Cremini Mushrooms, Stems Removed And Chopped And Caps Reserved
1 Clove Garlic, Minced
1 Jalapeno Pepper, Ribs And Seeds Removed, Finely Chopped
1 (8 Ounce) Package Cream Cheese, Softened

  • If using the bacon, place in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble the bacon slices and set aside.
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a foil lined baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chopped mushroom stems, garlic, and jalapeno; cook and stir until the mushrooms release moisture and soften, about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the mushroom mixture to a bowl, and stir in the cream cheese, cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper & garlic powder. Spoon the cheese mixture generously into the reserved mushroom caps, and arrange the stuffed caps on the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese begins to brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with bacon if desired.
I like to do what I call dim sum dinners. Several small bite treats that make a plate full for entrees and sides. This is one of my favorites.
