Bacon Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms

Bacon Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms are an easy and delicious appetizer to make to feed a crowd! 

I’m so excited! 

Tonight I’m hosting a DIY Charcuterie Workshop for around 20 folks. In the past I’ve done a bunch of cooking demos, but this workshop has me giddy as a school girl. 

Making a charcuterie board is one of my favorite things to do in life. So being able to teach others how to build a beautiful masterpiece and step outside their creative comfort zone makes me truly happy. Plus, I’m sprinkling in some photograph tips on how to make it Instagram worthy. It should be a fun and relaxing evening! 

Besides getting ready for the workshop, I am still in big time nesting mode. I want to organize everything in my house. I’ve got a few things done, but I need to pick up the pace. I’m concerned that the further along I get in this pregnancy the less motivated I will become. 

I feel like I might have a giant reality check towards the end of July. I am super stubborn when it comes to slowing down. Am I crazy for feeling that way? Maybe I should just chill out and enjoy life now? Good news, we have decided to go on a babymoon to Maine during this time. Hopefully this will be a good transition to actual reality! 

And speaking of Maine, we are going to Portland and Bar Harbor. If you have any recs on places to eat and things to do definitely let me know. Okay, on with today’s post. Um, Fourth of July is next week. DO WHAT?!!

If you wan to mix up your standard patriotic fare this year these Bacon Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms are a must. So simple to put together. Just stuff cheeseburger mixture into a mushroom cap, bake for a bit and add all your favorite fixings on top! You’ll never miss the bun and let’s be real small bites of food are way more to fun to consume!
