Healthy Kale Spinach Bacon Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

 

Need a yummy but low calorie appetizer that you can bring to any holiday party ??

Filled with a combination of sauteed kale, spinach and crispy bacon, not to forget some creamy cream cheese!

You’d never guess in one bite these are low in calorie or made with turkey bacon. You’ve never guess these little bites don’t have bread crumbs in them, NOPE, never!

 

 

Cooking the mushrooms upside down before filling them and baking will release much of there juices so you won’t have water logged mushroom bites.

See the picture below? Yep mushroom juice under there. Just be sure to line your pan with foil so it’s an easy clean up!

 

If you’re not fond of kale replace it with another cup of spinach. :)

 

 

My mushrooms were small. I had a total of 35! So one little one was only 15 calories and 1 gram of fat! That’s why I am giving you the total in the recipe to calculate how many in your own package.
