I made this last night in true 30-minute meal fashion! It worked great--I used turkey bacon and left out (accidentally!) the shrimp. You can buy already crumbled feta and sliced mushrooms from this store. Its super super easy and totally impressed my guests!!!

How about using crab meat instead of shrimp?

Oh my, this sounds delectable. (I'm not a huge fan of bacon, but it seems to fit here.)

Yuck, I hate bacon. I like the Morningstar Farms facon bacon, though. I don't know if it would work in this recipe, however.
