"From our local state paper as part of their Seven Recipes in Seven Days. Suggest you omit the bacon for a vegetarian option and use oil to sauté the other ingredients. The weight for the mushrooms is approximate as they vary as with the rashers of bacon. OPTIONAL EXTRA - for breakfast serve with a fried or poached egg on top."

Daily Inspiration

We absolutely loved these stuffed mushrooms. Loved the vibrant colors and the fact that it didn't include cheese. I opted to use medium-large brown mushrooms as it was just the two of us. I also substituted sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and panko bread crumbs. Thanks for a great side dish to my lunch today.
