This appetizer is so simple and delicious! People will think you slaved over them, but really they can be put together in a very short amount of time. You might want to make extra because they get snatched up fast!
These are so good, you may omit the butter but it is lovely to sop up the sauce with a bit of baguette. Use real bacon. I often use small Portabello mushrooms but either white, portabello or any mushroom typs large enough to hold the stuffing. Try using escargot bakers to hold the mushrooms this way you don't lose any of the sauce. Serve right in the escargot pan. If you don't have escargot pans just bake them on a tray or small oven proof dish -see picture. Make as many as you wish just allow 1 clove garlic for each mushroom. If serving as an appetizer/first course allow 5-6 mushrooms per person depending on the size of the mushrooms. If serving as a side dish to Brunch etc allow 2-3 per person.
My husband and I are crazy about stuffed portabello mushrooms and have tried many recipes from Zaar. Last night, we came up with a version that does not cover up the taste of the mushroom. We love this with our grilled steak. Grilling the mushrooms for a short period of time really made a difference for us in this recipe. Hope you enjoy. Prep time is estimated.
I came across this recipe a few years ago when I was on low carb diet. It can be a meal or nice as a side with grilled steak instead of a baked potato. I have also cut in halves or quarters to serve as an appetizer. This recipe can be halved or doubled easily. Hope you try and enjoy!
