Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Smoked Bacon and Organic Cotswold Brie

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Smoked Bacon and Organic Cotswold Brie


Season the mushrooms with a little salt and pepper, and then arrange the bacon over the mushrooms so that the bacon juices will run into the mushrooms as they cook. Place the mushrooms under a medium hot grill, and when the bacon is almost cooked, thinly slice the Brie and arrange on top. Put back under the grill until the cheese is melted and golden. Toast the bread and serve the mushrooms on top. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil.
Serves 2

Tip: If you are feeling really decadent, smear a little pesto onto the mushrooms, and add a few pine nuts or sun dried tomatoes when you place the cheese on top.

I made this - fantastic. Quite rich - you need the parsley or a bit of lettuce would do the trick.

How expensive would it be to ship a couple of pounds of Red Leicester and a couple of pounds of Stilton to Boise, Idaho 83687? Also, do you have a good recipe for steak and stilton pie? Thanks, Grant.
