  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Remove stems from mushrooms; reserve caps. Chop enough stems to measure 3/4 cup. Discard remaining stems or reserve for another use. In large bowl, toss mushroom caps with vinaigrette; place stem sides down in ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan.
  • 2
    Bake 10 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle; drain.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel. Crumble bacon; set aside. Remove and discard drippings from skillet.
  • 4
    In same skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and chopped mushroom stems; cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender.
  • 5
    In medium bowl, stir onion mixture, bacon, cheeses and mustard until well blended. Spoon mixture into mushroom caps; place filled sides up in pan. In small bowl, mix bread crumbs and remaining 1/2 teaspoon olive oil; stir in parsley. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture over filled mushroom caps.

Expert Tips

  • We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • Clean mushrooms just before using. Wipe clean with damp cloth or rinse quickly and drain well. Mushrooms should not be soaked in water because they will absorb it.
  • Don't want to cook bacon? Look for precooked bacon with the regular bacon at the grocery store. It's a great way to save time, and you can keep it in the freezer.
