Bacon-Wrapped Mushrooms


Home | Recipes | B
Appetizer Meat

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Bacon
  • 1 lb Fresh mushrooms, washed
  • Toothpicks

Directions:

1. Cut the mushrooms in half. If it is a very small mushroom, leave it whole. If it is an oversized mushroom, cut into thirds or fourths.
 
2. Slice bacon in half (width-wise) at an angle. To do this, hold the knife perpendicular to the bacon, then turn the knife slightly so that the knife is now at an angle, then slice the bacon.
 
3. Take a slice of bacon and wrap it around a mushroom half, overlap the ends, and poke a toothpick about half-way into the mushroom at the overlap.
 
4. Repeat this for each bacon slice and mushroom half.
 
5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 
6. Arrange mushrooms on a drip pan about 1/2-inch apart. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot.
 
NOTES: Depending on how thick the bacon is, you may need more than 1 pound. Also, don't let soak mushrooms in water or they'll absorb too much water and then they'll shrink and crack. Posted to MM-Recipes Digest by Julie Bertholf <jewel1@ix.netcom.com> on Feb 15, 1998
