Bacon and Mushroom Roll-Ups
Chef:  Judy Krening - Fort Morgan, CO          Category:  Appetizers


6-8 slices bacon
1/2 lb. mushrooms, chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 (4 oz.) package cream cheese
12 slices bread
1/4 cup melted butter

Directions: Saute bacon, mushrooms, onion, salt, and pepper 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in cream cheese; set aside and let cool for 15 minutes. Cut crusts from bread. With rolling pin, flatten bread until 1/4 inch thick. Spread 2 tablespoons mushroom mixture over each slice. Roll like a jelly roll. Secure with toothpicks. Refrigerate 1 hour. Put on cookie sheet and brush with melted butter. Bake 10 to 15 minutes at 375°F until lightly brown. Cut in half and serve warm. Makes 24 appetizer-size servings.

Notes: This appetizer is especially delicious with homemade bread. My family looks forward to this appetizer during the holidays.
