Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 6 slices bacon fried and chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb large cremini mushrooms cleaned, stems removed

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  • In a medium bowl add the Parmesan cheese, bacon, parsley and salt and pepper to taste. I usually don't add any salt because I find the Parmesan cheese and bacon provides enough saltiness, but I do add about 1/2 tsp of black pepper. Stir everything together and set aside.
  • In a large oven safe skillet, add the olive oil and heat it over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook on both sides for about 2 or 3 minutes per side, just until the mushrooms start to brown a bit.
  • Add about 1 tbsp of the bacon/cheese mixture to each mushroom, you should have enough to fill all the mushrooms.
  • Place the mushrooms in the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Notes

To make these ahead for a party, do everything up until step 4, and refrigerate until ready for baking. 5 or 10 minutes before serving, place the mushrooms in the oven and roast them for 5 minutes.
