Blue Cheese Filled Bacon-Wrapped Mushrooms

Blue Cheese Filled Bacon-Wrapped Mushrooms

These delicious snacks can be made ready at home before you head for the hike and grilled on a campfire grill grid when you have set up camp, dinner is over and the tea water is boiling. If you don’t bother to bring a grid a few stick will work just as well.

12 large baby portobello mushrooms
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
6 dashes hot sauce (or more if desired)
6 slices bacon


[1] Grease the campfire grill grid if you brought one or make 6 sticks ready.

[2] Clean tops of mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove stems.

[3] In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, blue cheese, salt, pepper and hot sauce together.

[4] Divide cheese mixture evenly into mushroom cavities.

[5] Cut each slice of bacon in half. Wrap around mushroom and place a toothpick into the mushroom where the bacon ends overlap. (Make sure the toothpick is sticking out the side and is not in the top or bottom.)

[6] Grill mushrooms 5-7 minutes per side or until bacon has grill marks, is slightly crispy, and the filling has melted. If you didn’t bring a grid place the mushrooms on the end of the s sticks and grill them over the campfire embers till you get the same result.

[7] Remove from grill or sticks, remove toothpicks and serve hot.
