Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon & Boursin

I’ve always loved mushrooms but they were forbidden in our household as a child.  When we were young, Marlina had an adverse reaction to one so my parents assumed she had an allergy..and that was the end of having them in the house.  But once in a while Marlina would sneak a mushroom {at a friends!} with no type of adverse reactions.  However, when my mom found out she was doing this, well, let's say it was not a pleasant experience!

Living with Gavin is easy-we have no dietary restrictions.  We have basically the same tastes in food and he likes trying out new things.  I totally lucked out.  I’ve been meaning to make these for quite some time now, and happy that I have another appetizer to add to the blog.  It’s simple, easily adaptable and so addicting!  I used some of my favorite savory ingredients-boursin cheese (YUM!) & bacon.  You can’t go wrong with them!  I added in some chopped walnuts for some texture and threw in chives for color.  But you can pretty much add whatever you please…but make lots because they will not last long!
Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon & Boursin
Makes 16 stuffed mushrooms

16 white button mushrooms, washed
½ package (75 grams) Boursin Garlic & Chive Cheese
1 slice bacon, cooked and chopped finely
1 tablespoon chives, chopped finely
3 tablespoons walnuts, chopped finely.

Vegetable oil, for brushing

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

Remove the stems from the mushrooms & place the caps (hollow side) down on the baking sheet. Brush with vegetable oil and bake for approximately 8-10 minutes, until the mushrooms are slightly softened. Allow the mushrooms to cool and drain off any excess liquid. Replace the aluminum foil.  
Turn the mushrooms over so that they are hollow side up.

In a small bowl, mix together the Boursin cheese, bacon, walnuts & chives. Spoon into the mushroom caps. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake for about 12-15 minutes, until the mushrooms are golden.  Serve warm.

  1. I have always thought that it would be difficult living with someone that has a totally different taste in food. I have been so blessed in that department as well :). And these mushrooms would be a great side dish or appetizer.... I am sure they'd be gone in no time!
