Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushroom Burgers with Crispy Bacon Bits

Loved, loved, LOVED these! So quick, so simple it’s silly and so very delish! Lose the bacon for a great vegetarian braai option.


3 Tbsp butter (melted)
2 tsp crushed garlic
large brown mushrooms
smooth cream cheese
200 g bacon bits
fresh chives/garlic chives (chopped)


Pack 14 briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing. Put a couple of firelighters in the bottom section and get that going. When the briquettes are ready place your PotjieKing griddle plate on to the PotjieKing to heat up – skottle side up and close both the door on the PotjieKing.

  • Melt a little of the butter on the skottle.
  • Fry the bacon bits until nice and crispy.
  • Remove from the skottle and set aside.
  • Melt the rest of the butter and add in the garlic, let that fry for a couple of minutes.
  • Using a basting brush cover the mushrooms with the garlic butter.
  • Sprinkle a bit of salt inside the mushroom and stuff with cream cheese.
  • Place mushrooms onto the braai grid and cover with your PotjieKing dome lid.
  • Close both doors on your PotjieKing and the vents on the dome. Cook for 10 – 15 min.

Serve on a bed of lettuce, in a fresh bun, topped with crispy bacon and a sprinkle of fresh chives/garlic chives to garnish.
