The Mr and I are mushroom lovers. But when you live with a housemate who doesn’t eat mushrooms, we don’t get to eat it much. Until he heads home for his winter/summer breaks, do we get to have mushrooms. And we have HEAPS. haha
One of my favourite ways to have mushrooms is baking them, especially the huge portobello mushies. Don’t you love them too? Stuff them with bacon and top them with cheese. The juiciness of the mushroom, the saltiness of the stuffing and topping has just one word to describe it – AWESOME .
Really. Try it. You won’t regret it (:
Stuffed Portobello Mushies
2 Portobello Mushrooms
1 slice of bacon, cute into small pieces
1/2 big onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, baked in the oven for 20 mins and mashed with a fork
2 tbs breadcrumbs
1 tbs tomato paste
2 tsp chopped parsley
Cheddar cheese, enough to top the mushies (I like to have more ! haha)
salt and pepper, to taste
1) Preheat oven at 180 degrees Celcius. Heat a non-stick pan, add the onion and bacon. fry till soft and fragrant. Add the tomato paste and fry till well combined.
2) Pour into a bowl, mix with the bread crumbs, garlic and parsley.
3) Put stuffing into the mushrooms and make sure you pack in well. Top with the cheese and bake for 10-15mins.
Eat it while it’s hot! (:
