Stuffed Mushroom Recipe With Bacon

By

These basic stuffed mushrooms get a nice smoky flavor from the diced cooked bacon. Feel free to use your favorite seasoned salt blend in place of the plain salt.

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Makes 12 Stuffed Mushrooms

Ingredients:

  • 12 large mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed and minced
  • 4 slices bacon, diced, cooked, drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 slice bread, crust removed, soaked in water and squeezed to remove as much moisture as possible
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

Preparation:

Heat oven to 375°.

Remove the stems from the mushrooms, leaving caps whole for stuffing. Chop the stems finely.

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet or saute pan. Saute the chopped stems with the chopped onion and garlic until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked diced bacon, parsley, salt, pepper, moistened bread, and egg. Mix to blend thoroughly. Fill the mushroom caps and arrange in a greased baking dish.

Toss the fine bread crumbs with the 1 tablespoon of melted butter and sprinkle over the mushrooms. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until nicely browned.

Makes 1 dozen stuffed mushrooms.
