Before Bobby Flay became a huge star on Food Network he had a 1/2 hour show on Lifetime that he shared with Katie Brown. One day he made stuffed mushrooms, and my husband and I played with the recipe and made these...so we called them Better Than Bobby's..now Bobby Flay is a huge star, but this recipe was created before he was the big star!
1clean mushrooms by wiping with damp kitchen towel. Remove stems and save. Place mushrooms on cookie sheet. Place small pats of butter between the mushrooms (very important step..they don't turn out quite right if you don't do this). Mix cheese, onion, garlic, and bacon.(you can also chop mushroom stems and add to mixture. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.) Fill mushroom caps with mixture. Place in a 375 degree oven for 45-60 minutes. The longer you cook them the better they are. These are delicious, even kids that don't like onions and garlic like these. The onions and garlic provide a wonderful flavor, but aren't over powering like it seems they would be. The mixture of cheese, onion, garlic and bacon meld together into a very delicious appetizer. You'll fight over who gets to scrape the cheese off the pan when you remove the mushrooms :-)
2ALSO: you can vary this recipe with whatever cheese you prefer. I recommend one soft and one hard cheese. Sometimes I use Havarti, mozzarella and some cream cheese. You can use orange cheeses, too. Whatever you prefer. I recommend doubling the batch if you have more than 3-4 people. They go quickly!
