These are the stuffed mushrooms I teased you with back in November (Thanksgiving dinner). This is my sister Svetlana’s recipe and it’s quite scrumptious!

These mushrooms are stuffed with a mix of cheeses, bacon and onion and are baked to perfection. I really should stop posting recipes at night; it always makes me hungry. Imagine that.

Ingredients for Stuffed Mushrooms:

1 lb white or brown mushrooms
6-8 oz bacon, chopped
1 small/medium onion, chopped
2 cups (1/3 lb) smoked gouda cheese, finely grated
1 cup mozzarella cheese, finely grated

Ingredients for smoked gouda and bacon stuffed mushrooms on a cutting board

How to Make Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms:

1. Preheat the Oven to 400˚F. Wipe the mushrooms with a barely damp paper towel. DO NOT WASH MUSHROOMS!

2. Remove the stems from mushrooms and scrape out the centers with either a melon baller or a measuring teaspoon.

3. Mix the two cheeses together. Set 1/4 of the cheese aside

4. Saute chopped bacon with chopped onion 5-7 minutes on medium high heat until bacon is cooked through and browned. (don’t add any oil, the bacon has plenty). Stir frequently so you don’t burn your onions. Transfer the bacon and onion mix to a bowl (get rid of the excess oil in the pan).

6. Place a heaping tablespoon into each mushroom so it’s plump and full. Top each mushroom with with extra cheese

7. Bake at 400˚F for 8 minutes or until they are soft to the squeeze and just starting to look a little juicy. Don’t overcook them or they will get soggy.

      Tried this recipe to take to friends get together last night. Delicious! And everyone raved about them. I did use smoke Gouda, but didn’t have mozzarella cheese, so added a bit of regular Gouda too. I baked them for 10 min. at 400F because I had them on a stone pan. This kept the mushrooms tender and not mushy. So good. Highly recommend.

      bacon and mushroom….yuummmm..so i made these twice already they’re so delish. first time i took the time to clean all of them with wet paper towels and it was very time consuming since i made a large batch. plus schooping the insides out individualy… second time around i just washed them super fast and dried right away with paper towels and surprisingly they didn’t let out much water as i expected. i put them on a rack as well and then on top of the backing sheet.

        That’s what I usually do, just wash them super fast 😬. Thank you for yet another great review!

      I made this dish for our family’s Christmas dinner and everyone loved it! I decided not to put bacon inside my filling since we have some picky eaters in our family and they don’t like soggy or soft bacon inside their food. I made crispy bacon bits instead and sprinkled on top (more like dumped 2 tablespoons of hot crispy bacon bits on each mushroom! Lol) when I was ready to serve. It was a hit! 😁😀😊
      I made quite a few recipes from your website and can I tell you that, everything I make something from your blog, people always ask for a recipe and are in awe how good things taste! Your blog is my FAVORITE to go to since you are so precise on your recipes and its so easy to fallow. Those pics… Very helpful too! By far, you are my favorite for amazing recipes you provide and step by step directions on how to make it too!! 😊

      I made these for an appetizer and they went over so well my Dad asked me to make a batch just for him. We are Italian and are very hard critics. Thank you Natasha for your site!
