Mushrooms are the best, on pizza, in pasta, on salads, on their own. They are incredibly simple to make or eat raw and don’t go bad for at least a week…or even more if you’re a lucky veggie hoarder like me!
I came across a few stuffed mushroom recipes about a year ago and it’s been a favorite ever since. I’ve adapted the recipe to make it a little more healthy. Goat Cheese is generally lower in fat and calories than cow’s milk and turkey bacon is much leaner than regular bacon.
Makes a great snack, brunch, lunch, or dinner side. I’m a huge fan of tapas styled entire hors d’oeuvre meals!
