Thanksgiving must-have: healthier stuffed mushrooms

They’re not your traditional stuffed mushrooms. No, these are a lower fat version with the inclusion of bacon. Yes. You heard me right. Lower fat. Bacon. Excited much?

They’re then roasted to their golden perfection and the bacon becomes crispy. Oh man, I am drooling just thinking about these mushrooms.

Black Bean Burgers with Portobello Mushrooms & Cheddar

A deliciously spicy black bean burger with portobello mushrooms and sharp cheddar cheese

I believe this with all my heart because of the sheer volume of customization you can have with burgers. With cheese or without. Meat, vegetarian, vegan. Add-ins inside the meat or on top. Sesame buns or brioche or…
