Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

 I know mushrooms are one of those love or hate relationship type foods, but I’m one of the lovers. Whether it’s in casseroles, salads, pasta, with steak or even by themselves and a few ingredients, they’re fantastic! I got a bunch on sale at the store last week, and decided to make a nice little snack for us – these delish Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms! They turned out really good, and possibly more healthy than other options!
Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms / Busy Mom's Helper

14 oz. Fresh mushrooms (I used basic white ones)
2 Garlic cloves, minced
3 cups Spinach
4 slices Bacon, chopped
1 tsp. Olive oil
1/4 cup Bread crumbs
2 tbsp. Italian seasoning
3 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Remove the stems from the mushrooms. Mince.

In a medium skillet, cook the spinach over medium heat until it begins to wilt. Remove and chop.

Cook the bacon (same skillet is fine) over low heat until done. Remove and chop.

Add the olive oil and garlic to the skillet. Saute about 2 minutes, or until turning gold. Add mushroom stems and cook another 2 minutes.

Remove mushrooms and garlic from skillet and mix with the spinach, bacon, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, and Parmesan cheese.

Fill each mushroom top with the cheese mixture, filling slightly above the top edge. Set mushrooms on sprayed baking sheet, then lightly spray the mushrooms with cooking spray.

Bake about 20 minutes, or until tops are starting to turn gold.
