Bacon ‘N Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms


3 slices bacon
8 good-sized mushrooms
1 tbsp. bacon fat
1 tbsp. finely chopped onion
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic granules
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Place bacon in a large frying pan. Cook over medium heat until evenly browned. Drain. Dice and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove mushroom stems. Ste aside caps. Chop the stems. In the same frying pan, with about 1 tbsp. of the bacon fat from cooking the bacon, cook the mushroom stems and onion until the onion is soft. Remove from heat. In a medium bowl, stir together the mushroom stem mixture, seasonings and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Mix well and scoop into mushroom caps. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and turn the oven to broil. Broil for about a minute or until the cheese is melted and just golden.
