I’m a big fan of stuffed mushrooms! I order them at restaurants whenever I get the chance. So you can imagine how happy I was when Patrice from Circle B Kitchen agreed to share this delicious appetizer with us!  Don’t they look yummy?!  I love her photos!
 

I know there are a bazillion recipes out there for stuffed mushrooms, many of them worthy of serious consideration and respect.  But this here particular recipe is simply stellar.  It’s not only easy (it really is), but these little mushroom morsels are amazingly flavorful, and, dare I say, a little on the healthy side.  Sure, there’s a little butter and a little bacon, but really, just a little.   And if you would like to make them vegetarian, leave out the bacon, swap the butter for olive oil and they’ll still be scrumptious.
 

The big flavor in these little guys comes from the Gouda cheese, which not only makes them taste divine, but creates a lovely aromatic ambiance in your kitchen as they bake.  OK, the bacon doesn’t hurt either.
 

Now, about those photos… I made an executive decision to post only the photos I took before I baked them.  It’s my blog so I get to do that.  And it’s not that these little guys look so terribly awful after baking, it’s just that they weren’t so, shall we say, photogenic.  After baking, our lovely little mushrooms do turn dark and the filling melts in and there is some shrinkage, which is perfectly normal for mushrooms and makes them taste wondrously divine.  And even as I write this, it makes my mouth water to think of it, but dang, it, the photos did not do them justice.  So use your imagination if you must, but do make these.  Here’s the recipe…
