Ta-dah! Tuesday - Recipe, and 80s Theory Debunked

By Lakota @FHCShopping
Shirley Conran once claimed life was too short to stuff a mushroom. But then she also seemed to think it would be enjoyable to be pleasured by a goldfish*, so I think we can discount her point of view. Yeah, basically it's a recipe post. You'll notice that there aren't many of these on FHCS, and might deduce that I'm including one today because I've not got round to making anything much recently. I make no comment, except to say that my lunch yesterday was really good. So nyeh.
Ta-dah! Tuesday - Recipe, and 80s theory debunked will need:
Large flat mushrooms - eg, field or portobella, remove the stalks and chop finelyFinely chopped onion and garlicGrated Cheddar, or crumbled blue cheese such as Stilton or DolcelatteBreadcrumbs (I always have a bag in the freezer)Fresh or dried parsley or corianderChopped streaky bacon or ham (assuming you're not veggie, obviously. It's not essential)
I'm afraid I'm not one for proportions with this kind of thing, as it really depends on how greedy you are and how many people you're serving, but I used 2 rashers of bacon, just under half a small red onion, one clove of garlic and about a handful of cheese and breadcrumbs. As you're cooking it all together in a small frying pan it's really easy to see whether you need more of anything and just add as you go. You simply fry the onion garlic and mushroom in a little olive oil, add the bacon if you're using that and cook for a few minutes. [If you're using cooked ham, just add it at the end]. Stir in your cheese, breadcrumbs and herbs, mix together and spoon into the tops of your mushrooms. Then you just bung it in the oven at 200 degrees for around half an hour. Couldn't be easier, and really only takes a couple of minutes to prepare. Really nice with salad and a dollop of creme fraiche.
So - what have you been up to? If you link up, could I please ask you to make sure your post mentions Ta-dah! Tuesday. Thanks!
