Cream cheese stuffed mushrooms

I have no idea when I moved from the mushroom hating camp to the mushroom loving camp, but I love them fiercely now. There’s something uniquely satisfying about popping a whole stuffed mushroom into your mouth. Maybe it’s the piggish feeling that I like so much. I first tried these stuffed mushrooms when my sister cooked for us a couple of summers ago. My sister Joey can bake and cook. Her version had streaky bacon weaved throughout but I decided to try and make something similar sans-bacon. Not because I’m against bacon, not at all.

Creamy mushroom stuffing

A variation of this recipe. 4 button mushrooms (sliced into matchsticks), half a cup of breadcrumbs, 4 cloves of garlic (chopped), half a bottle of cream (enough to give a sticky consistency), salt, pepper, fresh basil, fresh sage.

Sorry, no after photos. Wanted to eat this in a hurry!

Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Breast…Wrapped in Bacon

I mean, bacon, chicken, mushroom, garlic, cream…how could this possibly go bad? I used to make this without bacon or capers, so you can use these or leave out. This recipe is enough for 2 servings. What I like about this dish is that you can prep for it before guests arrive, then pop it in the oven when they get to your house. Then it’s only 30 minutes until dinner and you can entertain rather than fluffing around in the kitchen.
