  • 5 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed mushrooms, chopped (4 brown and 4 white mushrooms)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp white wine (we recommend Chardonnay)
  • 1 tbsp chives
  • 6 oz cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups shredded gruyère (reserve 1/2 cup for topping)
  • Crackers or baguette for serving
  • Topping: 1 tbsp chives


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F
  2. Heat your skillet to medium heat. Once warm, add the bacon and cook 8-10 minutes until it starts to crisp.
  3. While the bacon is cooking, line a bowl or plate with paper towel. When the bacon is done, remove from the pan to the paper-towel lined bowl or plate.
  4. Leave 1 tbsp of drippings from the bacon in the skillet.
  5. Add the mushrooms to the skillet plus 1/4 tsp each of pepper, garlic powder and salt. Stir together and then let the mushrooms cook, stirring sparingly until they are nice and browned, about 10 minutes.
  6. Deglaze the pan by adding 3 tbsp of white wine, then cook 2 more minutes.
  7. Turn your pan off and stir in 1 tbsp chives and cooked bacon.
  8. In a separate bowl, stir together cream cheese, sour cream and 2 1/2 cups of shredded gruyère.
  9. Add your cheese mixture to the pan and gently stir to combine everything, smoothing out the top.
  10. Bake uncovered for 12 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle 1/2 cup remaining gruyère cheese on top.  Then bake for another 8 minutes, until cheese is bubbling.
  11. Top with chives and serve with your choice of bread or crackers!

Tips and tricks:

  • Prep all your ingredients before you get cooking! Then you’ll have everything you need to create the recipe at your fingertips
  • Cooking mushrooms on medium heat and stirring sparingly allows the mushrooms to release their water and get nice and browned.
  • Don’t want to include wine in your recipe? You can substitute with chicken broth.
