Protein Packed Stuffed ‘Shrooms

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!
