Spinach and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

The stuffing is so good, I could eat it by the spoonful! More mushroom appetizers you might also like Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Mushrooms, Mushroom Ceviche or Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms.

Here are some tips and variations:

  • I prefer the flavor of real bacon, so I buy center cut which is a bit leaner than regular bacon and I drain it well after cooking. Can you make them with turkey bacon? Sure, if you don’t eat pork that would work.
  • To make these vegetarian, replace the bacon with a little Feta cheese and chopped fresh herbs.
  • Can you make them ahead of time? Yes, you can prepare the stuffing ahead, then fill and bake them right before serving.

  1. This recipe was really amazing!  New family favorite. 

  2. WOW. After having really rich, decadent, delicious stuffed mushrooms for Thanksgiving, I have been craving them but wanted to cut calories. As I was making these I was not expecting much because the stuffing was so dry and crumbly with nothing to bind it. I really expected it to be a fail, but NO! I should not have doubted, because every recipe I make from this site it great. The stuffing did not fall all over the place after baked. They were not the moistest, or gooiest but they were not dry, and they were a little crunchy. My husband had raved about the Thanksgiving mushrooms, but said these were better because they were less heavy.. We had these for dinner with a chef salad. Awesome!

  3. Has anyone used pinko instead of breadcrumbs?

  4. I have made these several times and my family loves them! The only thing is I find they come out watery…any tip or suggestions on how to resolve this?

  5. So anxious to make and eat this recipe.  Just curious on the green 1 point – is that for one mushroom?

  6. Love this recipe! The portions are perfect and you can switch out with things you already have on hand. Made own bread crumb with leftover wheat bread, then used kale and Asiago cheese. Yum! 

  7. This looks delicious. Do you think, fine chopped.  toasted pecans, or walnuts with iItalian seasoning might be a good GF replacement for the breadcrumbs? I am finding not all GF products are as good tasting as their wheat counterparts, so I am trying to get more inventive. I have just been put on GF lifestyle. 

  8. Easy and very good! Great add on to a bbq.

  9. Could these be made ahead and frozen?

  10. Strange question. I would LOVE to make these, but my son can’t have mushrooms. Any alternative to stuff?

    • This stuffing is delicious. My family loves this recipe. I have actually made it and stuffed both chicken breasts and pork chops with it. I think it would work well with a baked potato, also.

  11. Very good and “company” worthy! Easy to prepare, though the filling has quite a few steps. Will make again!

  12. Made these tonight and they were very good. Easy!

  13. Hi,

    Looking to use big portobello mushrooms.  Any info how I can adjust the ingredients and still remain relatively healthy?  

  14. I may make these but i will have to skip the garlic father in law doesn’t like it

  15. Question………can frozen spinach be used? And, if you make the stuffing ahead, how far ahead can it be made?? Love your website!! 

  16. Made these this weekend, They are delicious.

  17. I made these last night and they were wonderful. I'm not going to lie, it's a lot of work. I think I might cheat next time and use some of that pre-packaged bacon crumbles from the salad aisle.

  18. I am wondering if I can make the filling; stuff the mushrooms, but freeze them. Then bake once I'm ready to serve them… ?
