Stuffed mushrooms with spinach and bacon
I was at a business event a couple of years ago, where I tried a couple excellent stuffed mushrooms. Most stuffed mushrooms are filled with beef, which can taste great too. But these ones were filled with cheese, spinach and bacon. Now, I am not usually a huge spinach fan. But the spinach went perfectly with the other ingredients.
I would rate these as the best stuffed mushrooms I have ever tried. If you are looking for a recipe for stuffed mushrooms, then you should put this at the top of your list. I also have a recipe for cheese beer dip, which can work great with your stuffed mushrooms. You won’t regret it!
Ingredients for making stuffed mushrooms with spinach, cheese and bacon
You will need a fair number of ingredients to prepare this dish. But it will be worth the effort you need to put in at the grocery store. The ingredients you will need are listed below:
65 gr. of fresh spinach.
40 gr. of red onion.
1 clove of garlic.
50 gr. of bacon.
Preparation time 20 minutes
Cooking time 17 minutes
We clean the mushrooms well and take off his foot to leave only his hat. We preheat the oven to 190°, up and down.
Cut the garlic, onion and bacon into very small pieces. We will do the same with the mushroom foot that we will take advantage of it to include it in the stuffing. Wash, drain well and cut the spinach into small pieces.
In a frying pan with a splash of olive oil, sauté the garlic, onion and mushroom foot. When the onion has turned transparent, add the spinach and sauté it in a separate pan without oil.
Grease an ovenproof dish with oil and place the mushroom caps, add a pinch of salt and ground pepper. Put it in the oven and leave it for about 5 minutes on both sides.
Stuff the hats with the vegetables, add the diced cheese and cover with a drizzle of olive oil.
Put it in the oven at 200° for about 6 to 8 minutes, the time depending on the oven.
Cheese Beer Dip
I found that these mushrooms work even better with a cheese beer dip as a condiment. You can use the dip for anything else too, of course. But I found this is a great one to use for your stuffed mushrooms.
Have fun while preparing this great recipe, because everything can be improved when you add cheese and beer.
For the Sausages
1 liter of beer
1 sliced onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
10 German or sausage type sausages
10 Hot dog breads
For the Cheese Sauce
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
10 millilitres of beer
10 millilitres of milk
250 grams of Cheddar Cheese
In a large pot, add the beer, onion, garlic and bring to a boil. Add the sausages to the liquid mixture and simmer for 15 minutes, then remove the sausages from the mixture and transfer to a hot grill and roast until cooked through for 12 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the cheese sauce: In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and whisk in the flour. Cook for 1 minute. Slowly add the beer and milk to the flour mixture, stirring constantly. Continue beating over medium heat until mixture is thickened, about 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and add cheese. Stir the mixture until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth, then place the cooked sausages on the bread and cover with the cheese sauce.
