Happy Friday! Today’s recipe – Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon, Mozzarella & Cherry Tomatoes – scrumptious mushrooms loaded with melted cheese, bacon pieces and juicy cherry tomatoes – this is my kind of starter!
I can’t believe May is already halfway gone which brings June in. Wait, isn’t it supposed to be warm and sunny then? 🙂 It seems the weather here is a total mystery. For example, today, it’s been sunny, rainy and windy, like three different seasons in a day. It changes so quickly it’s insane. No, I’m not used to it and I’ll probably keep on complaining until some sun is shining. That’s enough for this post though so let’s get back to the recipes.
As my previous recipe, this one is perfect for a tasty brunch too. I actually did these last Sunday brunch and thew were divine. Make sure to serve them hot though, otherwise they get soggy and not so appetizing. I drenched mine in hot sauce, but how could I not (you know I’m addictive). Also, I think these lovely mushrooms will go just fine with a spicy Bloody Mary, definitely trying this next time. 🙂
You can serve them as a starter, canapes or even as a main, probably with some salad on a side. They would make a delicious weeknight dinner too, quick and easy to make.
Here’s what you need to make Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon, Mozzarella & Cherry Tomatoes
- 4-5 large mushrooms
- 10 cherry tomatoes, chopped
- 150g Mozzarella cheese, grated
- 100g bacon, chopped
- 100g breadcrumbs
- 2tsp dry parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 200°C.
- In a bowl, combine all the ingredients together and mix well.
- Stuff the mushrooms and season with the parsley, salt and pepper.
- Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes or until ready.
- Take out from the oven and serve straight away!
I used my homemade breadcrumbs, which I think I mentioned before how I prepare – simply blitz my leftover bread with some spices I fancy. This is a really simple way to use a stale bread and it works even better than the shop-bought breadcrumbs.
I hope you enjoy this simple recipe. Stay connected for more delicious recipes coming your way. Meanwhile, have an amazing weekend and hopefully the sun will be out. 🙂 xx
