How to make Creamy Garlic Mushrooms with Bacon

Step 1: In an oven-safe skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat until crispy. On a paper towel, transfer the crispy bacon to the drain.

Step 2: Add the butter to the same pan and let it melt. Then, add the mushrooms. Drizzle in some oil and cook the mushrooms until browned.

Step 3: Pour in the wine and broth. Allow everything to simmer for about 2 minutes or until the mixture has reduced, stirring often.

Step 4: Into the mushroom, stir in the garlic, and continue to cook until the garlic is fragrant. Add the herbs and cream. Adjust the heat to low and simmer for about 4 to 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened. To taste, season with salt and pepper.

Step 5: Return the bacon to the skillet and stir well. Then, sprinkle the mozzarella on top along with the Parmesan cheese.

Step 6: Place in the broiler for about 3 to 5 minutes until the cheese has melted and bubbled.

Step 7: Remove from the oven when done and serve the creamy garlic mushrooms with bacon immediately. Enjoy!
