Sweet Potato Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

Jump to recipe

Our mushrooms are filled with a filling of sweet potatoes and smoked bacon. These makes a great appetizer, side-dish or even a whole meal if served with a bowl of green salad.

Mushrooms are so versatille - you can turn then into a creamy soup, delicious risotto or toss pasta with them. We adore to bake them in the oven after we coated into breadcrumbs and herbs.

Tip for cleaning the mushrooms

  • Mushrooms grow low to the ground and often get pretty dirty. The best way to clean the mushrooms is to use a damp kitchen paper towel and rub lightly.

  • Do not rinse them in the water - they will absorb liquid and will lose texture and flavour. Once they are cleaned, cut carefully the stem off and chop using a sharp knife on a cutting board.

How to make stuffed mushrooms

Making these dish is simple and easy once you have ready mushrooms.

Chop the stems and sweet potatoes into really small pieces. Heat the oil in the frying pan, add garlic and fry for one minute. Add mushroom stems and sweet potatoes, then fry stirring all the time. Add bacon cutted into smaller pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with some parsley. Bake in the oven for about 13-15 minutes.
