Spinach and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms stuffed with sautéed baby spinach, chopped mushrooms, bacon, bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese – a lighter alternative to traditional stuffed mushrooms yet loaded with tons of flavor!

Ingredients

  • 14 oz 1 package fresh mushrooms, stems separated
  • 2 garlic cloves (sliced thin)
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 4 slices center cut bacon
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs (or GF)
  • 2 tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Smart Balance cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly spray a foil lined baking pan or baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Remove stems from mushrooms and mince fine.
  • Heat a medium sized skillet. Rinse spinach and add to the skillet; cook until it wilts, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the pan, squeeze excess liquid and chop fine. Set aside.
  • Dry skillet, add bacon to the skillet and cook on low heat until bacon is cooked through. Set aside on a paper towel. Coarsely chop.
  • Clean skillet and add olive oil to the pan. Add garlic and saute until golden, about 2 minutes.
  • Add minced mushroom stems and saute until soft, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and combine mushroom stems with sauteed spinach, bacon, bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese.
  • Season mushroom caps with salt. Fill mushrooms with spinach mixture, rounding tops off.
  • Place on an oven safe dish and lightly spray the tops with oil.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until golden. Eat warm.
