I am having a lot of fun trying new recipes out in my air fryer. Recently Aldi had a sale on their mushrooms, so I decided to try to make some Cheesy Stuffed Mushrooms.
We already had all of the ingredients I wanted to use on hand for my mushrooms. In a small mixing bowl, I mixed up a half brick of cream cheese, a handful of cheddar cheese, and a half bag of Aldi's bacon pieces. I also added a little bit of garlic salt, though you can not really see it in the picture.
When I was mixing up the cheese and bacon mixture, I decided to add some of the mushroom stems as well.
I generously stuffed the mushrooms with the cheese mixture.
I placed them in the air fryer basket I cooked them for about 10 mins at 360 degrees. Time and temp may vary a little depending on the fryer you use. It does not hurt to check on the mushrooms about half way through the cooking period.
These mushrooms were SO GOOD!! My daughter and I may have eaten all of them. They would definitely be a good easy appetizer for parties, friend get-togethers or just because. I have a feeling I will be asked to make these often.
If you have been thinking about getting an air fryer, but haven't done so yet, I highly recommend one. It was a little intimidating at first, but we love it. I bought mine from Kohls on sale with with a coupon. (Kalorik 3.5 quart, regular price $119.99) I could not find the same one on Amazon, but found some that are similar to mine that are also a good price. (these are affiliate links)
