Ingredients

  • 16 cremini mushrooms (large)
  • 4 ounces day-old baguette
  • 2 ounces grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 shallots (finely diced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 2 ounces gruyere cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 strips bacon

Directions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. 2Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. 3Carefully remove the stems from the mushrooms and discard or save for an alternative use.
  4. 4Arrange the mushrooms in the baking pan with the cavities facing up. Set aside.
  5. 5Break the stale baguette into large chunks and place in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse into coarse crumbs.
  6. 6Place the breadcrumbs into a large mixing bowl. Add the grated parmesan, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  7. 7Finely dice the shallot.
  8. 8Mince the garlic.
  9. 9Pour the olive oil into a large sauté pan and set over medium-high heat. Once the oil in shimmering, add the shallot.
  10. 10Cook for 5-6 minutes, until the shallot is softened.
  11. 11Add the garlic to the pan, and cook for a minute longer, until fragrant.
  12. 12Add the cooked shallots and garlic to the bowl of seasoned breadcrumbs.
  13. 13Grate the Gruyere or Fontina cheese into the bowl.
  14. 14Crack the eggs into the bowl of breadcrumbs and cheese. Using a large fork, mix vigorously until the ingredients are thoroughly combined and the stuffing holds together when pinched.
  15. 15With a small spoon and clean hands, stuff a generous Tablespoon of filling into each mushroom. Pack the filling tightly into each cavity, using enough so that the mushrooms are domed with stuffing.
  16. 16Cut each strip of bacon in half crosswise.
  17. 17Carefully wrap one bacon half over the top of each stuffed mushroom, so that the ends meet on the underside.
  18. 18Place the mushrooms seam-side down onto the baking sheet, spacing them 2” apart.
  19. 19Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven.
  20. 20Bake for 32-35 minutes, until the mushrooms have released some of their juices and the bacon is browned and crisp at the edges.
  21. 21Remove the pan from the oven. Allow the mushrooms to cool for 5 minutes before plating and serving.
