Today I am bringing you Bacon Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms.  Smoky Bacon, nutty pecans, buttery bread crumbs, all brought together with some sour cream and chicken broth then packed in baby portabella mushroom caps and broiled.  Appetizers are so good, if your making them for a party, you better double or triple your recipe for this one!

Bacon Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms - melt in your mouth bacony-nutty-buttery deliciousness!

I love appetizers and I could make a meal of just appetizers all the time.  Grumpy probably wouldn’t go for it though.  Its kind of funny what one person has set in their mind what makes up a meal isn’t it?  Well, while Grumpy was gone hunting back home with his dad one weekend, I decided that my meal was going to be these Bacon Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms.

Bacon Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms - melt in your mouth bacony-nutty-buttery deliciousness!


I found this recipe in Taste of Home and while it sounded amazing, I knew I could cut the fat a whole lot more. So, I reduced the butter and oil, cut the amount of bacon in half, and went with a light sour cream. The flavor of this appetizer was not lost in anyway by making these changes. These were super delicious. I think if I had made these full fat, that I probably would not have liked them as much because I feel that the bacon would have been overwhelming.

By making the changes I did to the recipe I saved 133 calories and 13 grams of fat!  See nutrition information for my revised recipe below.
