Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Mushrooms

I’m very pleased to be joining the Thursday Recipe Swap Meet this week. It’s a nifty blog hop hosted by Lorie from The Shewbridge’s of Central Florida and Marie at Xmas Dolly.

I hope you’ll hop over and look through the recipe contributions listed in the linky at either blog. Just click on the sweet little She Chef button to your left. You might discover your new favorite treat there!

The first time I tasted a bacon-wrapped mushroom, I was immediately in love. A great flavor combination, while completely simple to put together…had never occurred to me before that day.

So as I prepared bacon mushrooms earlier this week, it crossed my mind that there might be others out there that would really appreciate this simple dish, but just hadn’t thought of doing so yet. That’s why I decided to share the recipe here today.

Grilled Bacon Mushrooms

-8 oz fresh clean mushrooms
-16 oz bacon
-garlic powder
-lemon pepper
-bamboo skewers

Soak wooden skewers in water shortly before you make up the mushrooms. This will help keep the sticks from catching fire.

Wrap individual mushrooms with a slice of bacon and pierce with skewer. You can use an entire slice or just a half slice.

Be sure to poke the skewer through the loose end of the bacon to secure it onto the mushroom.

Load each skewer with 4 to 5 wrapped mushrooms. Season to taste.

Grill over a medium heat until cooked through…when bacon is done and mushroom has become tender and juicy.

If you use an outdoor grill be ready for bursts of fire as the bacon fat hits the hot coals or burner! Keep a close watch on them.


Now don’t forget to visit the other recipe entries at the blog hop. To get there…just click on the She Chef button at the top of my post. She’ll escort you safely over. Enjoy!

  1. Oh boy, my husband is going to love these. I make something similar, but they’re bacon wrapped waterchestnuts and they’re in like a barbecue sauce and you put in the oven, but these on the grill? Oh yeah, he’s gonna love these. Thanks for playing along today and hope to see you next week too! have a great weekend.

  2. Oh yes they do look delicious! I love mushrooms and the bacon sounds like a wonderful touch over the grill!

    • I’ve been thinking of trying them indoors under the broiler. Might be easier, but I bet they won’t taste better than cooked on the grill. :o) I’ve also thought about soaking the mushrooms in a little sherry or red wine prior to wrapping and grilling.

    They look surprisingly good. That has to be the yummiest looking Icky thing I’ve ever seen…. =) Sorry. Add mushrooms to the things I don’t like….

  4. They look AWESOME! I love mushrooms and bacon and the garlic powder on them sounds delish. I would never have thought about the lemon pepper, but I bet it adds just the right amount of zing… mmmmm.
    Bill would never eat that because he calls mushrooms fungi. =)
    Thanks for always supporting us, you are a super friend! HUGGLES.

  5. This looks super yummy! Do you think I could use Turkey Bacon instead?
