I've been working on several different stuffed mushroom recipes recently and this is by far my favorite. It is so deliciously savory that I just HAVE to keep eating! I love the combination of the runny egg yolk over the salty bacon and soft mushroom!
How to Make Egg and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms
To make this dish, start by removing the stalks from large portobello mushrooms, spritz them with olive oil spray, then roast them for ten minutes. Try and get ones with a large cup – and you'll see why later! Or maybe this is completely obvious to you. 🙂
If there is a lot of excess liquid in the mushrooms, drain it off. But don't discard it! Use it in stocks or soups for some amazing flavor! Sprinkle on some diced cooked bacon and shredded mozzarella (or preferred cheese), and cook for another five minutes.
Carefully crack an egg over the top of each mushroom. If the egg slips off, just leave it to cook, then load it onto the mushroom afterwards. A silicone mat is SUPER useful for this recipe! Cook for another eight minutes (or until the egg white is cooked through) then serve, garnished with black pepper and chopped parsley.
