  • 20 large button mushrooms

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter or coconut oil

  • ¼ cup diced onions

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 227g/½ pound bacon, cut into tiny pieces

  • 113g (4oz) cream cheese (½ cup), softened

  • ¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • ½ tsp fine sea salt

  • ½ tsp ground black pepper

  • 2 cups chopped lettuce


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
  • Remove the stems from the mushrooms and wash them. Place the caps on a paper towel to dry. Chop the stems finely.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter, then add the onions, garlic, and mushroom stems. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the onions soften. Cook until the bacon is crispy, about 4 minutes.
  • Pour the bacon mixture into a mixing bowl. Combine the cheeses in a mixing bowl. Fill each mushroom cap with 1 tbsp of the bacon and cheese mixture.
  • Season the stuffed mushrooms in an 8-inch square baking dish (a pie pan also works) with salt and pepper. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the mushrooms soften and the cheese melts.
    Arrange the lettuce on a serving platter. Place the baked mushrooms on top of the lettuce bed.
  • Although these are best served fresh, any leftovers can be covered and refrigerated for up to three days. Reheat for 5 minutes in a preheated 180°C/350°F oven or toaster oven, or until the cheese is melted.
