This is really should be a main dish itself! I made it as a side, and it was much too heavy for a side dish...maybe I'm just too used to regular mushroom sides. The taste is is like a stuffed mushrooom sauteed instead of stuffed! This dish is great as a main dish...don't force it to be a side or a vegetable!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wipe the mushrooms clean with a slightly damp cloth or paper towels; trim the bottoms of the stems and cut the mushrooms lengthwise into slices.
  2. Set aside.
  3. In a medium heavy skillet, fry the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp but not overbrowned.
  4. Lift out the bacon onto paper towels, letting as much fat as possible drain back into the pan.
  5. Pour the bacon fat into a large wide skillet and heat over medium-high heat until rippling.
  6. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  7. Add the mushrooms, chiles, and cilantro and cook, stirring, for 10 minutes, or until the juices released by the mushrooms have nearly evaporated.
  8. Remove from the heat.
  9. Preheat the broiler.
  10. Transfer the mushrooms to a wide broilerproof baking dish and scatter the bacon and the shredded cheese over the top.
  11. Run under the broiler for a few minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  12. Serve at once.
