Bacon Mushrooms Poppers

Going camp is one of my favorite activities! Ok, so I have a trailer! I know it isn’t really “Roughing it” but we still have fun. We cook in our Dutch Ovens, cook tin foil dinners and cook smores. My cousins introduced me to these Bacon Mushrooms Poppers. They were awesome, there was a lot of Bacon consumed that weekend!

Bacon Mushrooms Poppers

1/2 pound bacon, (We used apple wood smoked)
1 pounds of small bite sized fresh mushrooms
1/2 pound sliced cheese, (We used Provolone and Munster Cheese)

Clean all the mushrooms by wiping them clean with a paper towel. Wrap a ½ of a piece of bacon tightly around a mushroom, put onto your “smores” or “hot dog” cooking stick. The stick will secure the bacon, but use a tooth pick if needed. Roast it over the coals of your campfire until the bacon is crisp, rotate to make sure all the bacon is cooking evenly. Remove from the fire, REMOVE THE TOOTHPICKS, and wrap the hot mushroom and bacon with 1/3 of a slice of your cheese, pull of the stick and pop into your mouth. The cheese will just be starting to melt, so the cheese helps cool down the hot bacon and mushrooms.

You can make up your own combination. How about: Shrimp & Bacon, Scallop & Bacon, Large Tater-Tots wrapped in Bacon then when done dipped into ranch dressing, Bratwurst and Bacon cooked and when done roll into brown sugar and brown the sugar for a few minutes, Chunks of Halibut wrapped in bacon and then dipped into tartar sauce when done, and bacon wrapped Corn on the Cob.

BACON – BACON – BACON!!! Hope you have fun with this recipe, if you don’t have a camp fire cook them in your barbeque and put them on skewers.

Summer is half over! We must do some more campfires!
