CREAMY GARLIC MUSHROOMS & BACON
— 8 ounces (250 g) bacon, cut into strips
— 2 tablespoons butter
— 26 ounces (750 g) brown mushrooms, washed (pat dry with paper towel)
— 1 tablespoon olive oil
— 1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth/stock)
— 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
— 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
— 1 1/2 cups (400 ml) heavy cream, (thickened cream or evaporated milk)
— 1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme
— Salt and pepper to season
— 1/2 cup fresh shredded or grated mozzarella
— 1/4 cup fresh shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
Fry the bacon in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat until crispy. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel lined plate to soak up some of the oil. Set aside.
In the same pan, melt the butter. Add the mushrooms, drizzle with oil and mix through, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes to lightly brown mushrooms and release their juices (if any).
Pour in the wine (or broth) and let reduce for 2 minutes, while occasionally stirring. (Preheat broiler or oven grill.).
Add in the garlic and stir it through for a minute, until fragrant. Pour in the cream and herbs. Reduce heat down too low. Gently simmer until tender (about 4-5 minutes) and the sauce is slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the bacon back in and give everything a good mix to combine all of the flavors together. Top the mushrooms with the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly and mushrooms are done to your liking (about 3-5 minutes).
