Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms

These bacon wrapped mushrooms might be one of the easiest recipes I have made in quite awhile. You only need THREE INGREDIENTS: mushrooms, bacon, and mozzarella. The night I made these, I just made them for my sister, roommate and myself to snack on for a movie night. But, I think this would be a great recipe to take to a family dinner, a potluck with friends, or a food day at work… really any event where food is welcome, which in my life is anywhere and everywhere.

bacon wrapped mushrooms with stuffed with melty mozzarella
  • 1 pkg. baby or button mushrooms (8 oz)
  • 1/2 lb. bacon (sliced in half)
  • 4-5 oz. mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Clean mushrooms by brushing them with a clean towel.
  3. Destem the mushrooms and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Wrap half slices of bacon around the mushrooms and secure with toothpicks.
  5. Place mozzarella cheese inside the bacon-wrapped mushrooms. I used mozzarella pearls. 1-2 pearls fit perfectly in the center of each mushroom. But feel free to use shredded mozzarella or slices of fresh mozzarella if that’s what you have on hand.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked through and crispy.
