  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • Salt and black pepper to taste


Preparing the Ingredients

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C) and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Clean the mushrooms thoroughly and remove the stems, creating a hollow space in each cap for the filling.
  3. Cook the bacon until crispy, then crumble it into small pieces.
  4. Seed and finely dice the jalapeños, ensuring to remove any seeds for milder heat.

  2. Season the filling mixture with salt and black pepper to taste, then mix until well combined.

Stuffing the Mushrooms

  1. Using a spoon or piping bag, fill each mushroom cap with the cream cheese mixture, ensuring to mound it generously.
  2. Arrange the stuffed mushrooms on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a small space between each one.

Baking the Jalapeño Popper Mushrooms

  1. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the mushrooms for 18-20 minutes, or until the filling is golden and bubbly.
