Before we move on, I wanted to mention that your self-service table is also a great place to put out any holiday cookies or confections that are brought to the party by your guests. Rest assured that this will happen, so go easy when it comes to buying sweets for your soiree.

STUFFED MUSHROOMS (makes 20 – 24 hors d'oeuvres)
Preheat broiler to low.

In a bowl, combine cream cheese, bacon, green onion and garlic and mix well. Spoon equal portions of the mixture into mushroom caps and set on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Broil the mushrooms for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the mushrooms are cooked through and the cream cheese is brown and bubbly.

A quick hint…for a vegetarian version of this dish, simply leave out the bacon. You can visit NoTimeToCookDinner for more videos like this. We have more recipes and videos there.
