This is my favorite stuffed mushroom. For finger food, I use a pound of button mushrooms.


From "Ma Cuisine du Soileil" by Roger Verge

12 large mushrooms (about 1 lb.)
4 slices bacon, cut crosswise into small matchstick strips
6 Tbs. olive oil
2 Tbs. coarse fresh breadcrumbs
2 Tbs. minced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs. minced parsley
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400*F.

Wash and stem the mushrooms. Coarsely chop the stems.

Fry the bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels.

Heat 2 Tbs. of the oil in a skillet and saute breadcrumbs until golden. Set aside. Wipe out the skillet.

Heat 2 Tbs. oil in the skillet and saute the onion until golden. Add the garlic and minced mushroom stems and saute until liquid evaporates. Remove from heat and add bacon, crumbs and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Season mushroom caps with salt and pepper. Stuff with crumb mixture and arrange in an oiled baking dish. Drizzle with remaining oil. Bake about 25 minutes.

Serve hot, warm, or room temperature.
