Gourmet Club Appetizer – Blue Cheese Filled Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms

I have been remiss in posting the dishes from the last several gourmet clubs. Last summer, we had a club and the theme was simply “BLUE”. I had the assignment for dessert, but that is another post.

The appetizer that one couple brought was BLUE cheese filled bacon wrapped mushrooms. It was not just a delicious bite, it was one…two…three…as I couldn’t stop eating them. Try it, it was fabulous!

Sorry about the picture, but I was too busy scarfing these down to ensure great lighting!

Blue Cheese Filled Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms

Makes 4 servings

12 large baby Portobello mushrooms

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

2 oz. blue cheese, crumbled



6 dashes hot sauce

6 slices bacon


Preheat oven to medium heat. Grease the grill lightly.

Clean tops of mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove stems

In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, blue cheese, salt, pepper and hot sauce together. Divide cheese mixture evenly into mushroom caps. Cut each slice of bacon in half. Wrap around mushroom and place a toothpick into the mushroom where the bacon ends overlap. Grill mushrooms 5-7 minutes per side or until bacon has grill marks, is slightly crispy and the filling has melted.

Remove from grill, remove toothpicks and eat it hot.
