Smoked Gouda and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

These mushrooms are stuffed with a mix of cheeses, bacon and onion and are baked to perfection. This recipe is quite scrumptious!

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

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).

5.  Once the bacon is cooled to room temperature, mix it into the larger portion of cheese

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.


YUMM!!

    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. Reply

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

    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!! 😊 Reply

      I actually don’t have a way to do that at this point. I’ll look into it, but I don’t think I can add more than one photo with the current print function. Thanks for the suggestion! 🙂 Reply

    Hi, Natasha!
    Happy Easter to you and your beautiful family! Христос Воскрес! Воистину Воскрес!
    Now, back to my question 🙂 I dont have gouda cheese 🙁 is it okey if I’ll use only Mexican style blend ( monterey jack, medium cheddar and asaderi cheese). They sell it at costco. I want to make these mushrooms for tomorrow and I want to try your receipe. Usually, I make stuffed mushrooms with ground beef or turkey, but I want to try ur receipe 🙂 Reply

      Go ahead with the alternate cheese. It will still taste very good, it will just be Mexican cheese and bacon stuffed mushrooms 😉 Reply

    These look amazing! I will be making these very soon. Do you think it is ok to fill the mushrooms a day or so before serving them and have them chill in the refrigerator until ready to bake? Reply

      That should be just fine as long as the mushrooms don’t get wet so they don’t sweat 🙂 Reply

    Natasha do you think bacon bids will work or not? Reply

      I’d use regular bacon. Bacon bits might be too dry and crunchy, but it would probably still taste good. Reply

    I made these and they tasted great. Everyone in my family said that they tasted better the next day, I think because they absorbed more of the filling taste. Reply

      That’s interesting. We never had any left over so I wondered if they were still good the next day. Thanks for sharing! Did you reheat them the next day (oven, micro?)? Reply

    What is the reason you say to not wash mushrooms, is it because they will absorb the water? Reply

    • Natasha

      March 20, 2012

      Yes, that is exactly right! They will absorb too much water and will get too juicy. Reply
