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)
6 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 1/2 cups (400 ml) heavy cream, (thickened cream or evaporated milk)
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
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
First, you want to take the bacon and fry this in a skillet that’s oven-safe using medium heat. Do this until they’re crispy. Using a spoon that’s slotted, put this on a paper towel, and then, let it soak all the oil up before putting it to the side.
Using the same pan, melt down the butter, put the mushrooms in there.
Add some oil to it, and then mix it all together, and let it cook, scraping a bit of the bites which are browned within the pan.
Fry these mushrooms for a bit until they become a bit browned, making sure that the juices that are there get released.
Take the wine and broth and put it in there. Let it sit to simmer for two minutes seeing it reduce and then stirring this every so often.
Preheat the oven or broiler so that it’s hot.
Put the garlic in the mushroom mix, stirring this until it starts to smell. Form there, add the herbs and cream to there, reducing the heat in this until it’s low. Simmer this until everything’s tender, usually around 4-5 minutes, until the sauce gets thick. From there, you want to season this as needed with some pepper and salt.
Put the bacon in there and from there, make sure to mix everything together to make sure it’s all properly combined and the flavors are there.
Add the mozzarella over the mushrooms, and also add some parmesan cheese as needed, doing this in a way that fits you.
Put this in the broiler or oven, and let this broil on the oven or the grill until the cheese becomes melty and bubbled, and the mushrooms get fully done to the liking (around 3-5 minutes)
Take the mixture, put it on plates, and then serve this warm for best results. You can add more cheese if you want something that’s nice and cheesy, perfect for your needs
If you want to make this a bit more garlicky, or to add the cheese to it, you’re free to do so, as it’s something that really enhances the amazing taste of this.
