Good Friends, Good Food - Mushrooms

This week in our good friends good food group we are focused on mushrooms.   It worked out great that in my vegetable co-op came some portobello mushroom caps.   I have never tried those before!  My husband loves mushrooms but I can only take them in small doses and these are huge.  But they turned out really good and pretty!  Chandler loved them as I knew he would.  Sometimes it pays to cook what pleases others!  Ever since the pandemic started a year ago I think I have been spoiling him because we are living in challenging times.  This would be delicious to serve your honey bear for Valentines!


  • 6 portobello mushroom caps
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled (1/3 cup)
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced (1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt

    • Prebake Mushrooms: Preheat oven to 400 F. On baking half sheet lined with parchment paper, place mushrooms stem side up. Season with salt. When oven has preheated, bake mushrooms until softened and filled with liquid, about 15 minutes. Carefully lift up each mushroom with spatula and invert over bowl to drain out liquid, then place back on baking sheet. Discard liquid.
    • Stuff Mushrooms: Stir together bacon, scallions, cheddar, parmesan, and garlic in bowl until well-mixed. Spoon filling into each mushroom until stuffed.

    • Bake & Cool: Bake stuffed mushrooms at 400 F until cooked through and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Let mushrooms cool on baking sheet for at least 10 minutes, then serve.
