How to Make Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms
While the bacon fries, take the stems out of the mushrooms. Large button mushrooms work best for stuffing. I find the best button mushrooms at Sam’s Club or Costco.
Take the stems and chop them into small pieces. Additionally, mince the garlic and chop onions. Green onions are delicate enough for great flavor. When the bacon is cooked, add the mushroom stems, garlic, and onions to the skillet.
While the vegetables are frying, heat up the cream cheese in a bowl for 30 seconds in the microwave to make it easier to stir. Add the parmesan cheese to the bowl. Then drain the grease from the skillet and add the bacon mixture to the cheese in the bowl.
Chop up fresh parsley and add to the bowl. Season with fresh ground black pepper. Stir to completely combine the ingredients. The results will be a dough-like substance. Then begin to spoon into the mushroom tops.
Grill the mushrooms for 20 minutes on indirect heat with the grill at 350°. The mushrooms do have liquid in them, so expect them to shrink as well as having liquid drain off. If you bake these mushrooms, you will want to set them on a wrack on a jelly roll sheet. Bake for 20 minutes on 350 degrees.
