Bacon Crisps and Stuffed Mushrooms

I had these Bacon Crisps at a party with our community group in TN. They are delicious! Thanks, Tiffany, for introducing me to these!

Paula Deen's Bacon Crisps
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 sleeve buttery rectangular crackers (recommended: Waverly Wafers)
1 pound sliced bacon cut in 1/2

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
Place 1 teaspoon of the cheese on each cracker and wrap tightly with a strip of bacon. Place the wrapped crackers on a broiler rack on a baking sheet and put the baking sheets on the oven rack. Bake for 2 hours, or until the bacon is done. Do not turn. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot or at room temperature
Cook's note: You can also bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes if you're in a hurry!

I have been LOVING stuffed mushrooms lately! I have combined a few things from a few different recipes and here is what I have found to love.

Talia's stuffed mushrooms
2 (16 oz) packages of white mushrooms (about 2 inches in diameter)
4 tbsp EVOO (plus more to drizzle over mushrooms)
2 tbsp marsala wine
3 garlic cloves (finely minced)
1/2 cup pecorino romano parmesan cheese
3/4 cup panko crumbs
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tbsp fresh mint (finely chopped)
2 tbsp fresh parsley (finely chopped)
2 tbsp fresh basil (finely chopped)
salt and pepper

Do not rinse the mushrooms! Simply wipe them off with a dry towel. Pull the stems out of the mushrooms and reserve. Place mushrooms in a bowl with 2 tbsp EVOO and the marsala wine. Toss to coat and let sit. Finely chop about half of the mushrooms stems. In a small skillet, place the remaining 2 tbsp EVOO, mushrooms stems, and garlic. Let cook until the mushrooms are soft.

While the mushrooms are cooking, combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Add the mushroom stems to the mixture. Combine. Place the mushrooms on a baking sheet. Spoon the mixture into each mushroom. Drizzle, liberally, with EVOO.

Bake on 400 for about 20-25 minutes or until they are golden on the top.
