what to serve with creamy mushrooms
With the bacon in this creamy garlic mushrooms recipe, you really can serve it as a main, on garlic bread or a buttery cauliflower mash to keep it low carb.
However, pretty much anything goes… especially for mushroom lovers. Creamy garlic mushrooms are perfect with steak, salmon or chicken. Or serve them for breakfast
Fry the bacon in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat until crispy. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel lined plate to soak up some of the oil. Set aside.
In the same pan, melt the butter. Add the mushrooms, drizzle with oil and mix through, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes to lightly brown mushrooms and release their juices (if any).
Pour in the wine (or broth) and let reduce for 2 minutes, while occasionally stirring.
(Preheat broiler or oven grill.)
Add in the garlic and stir it through for a minute, until fragrant. Pour in the cream and herbs. Reduce heat down to low. Gently simmer until tender (about 4-5 minutes) and sauce is slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the bacon back in and give everything a good mix to combine all of the flavours together. Top the mushrooms with the mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly and mushrooms are done to your liking (about 3-5 minutes).
Cut the mushrooms in half, or in quarters if large, and set aside. Add the mushrooms. 4350 g (white) mushrooms1 tbsp oil1 bay leaf3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped 2 green chillies, seeded and chopped225 g low fat fromage frais or ricotta cheese1 tbsp chopped fresh mint1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)1 tsp saltFresh mint and coriander leaves, to garnish.

In the mean time, make the mushrooms sauce. Add chopped cooked bacon to the skillet. When chicken is done baking and chicken thighs are completely cooked through, add cooked chicken thighs to the skillet and spoon the sauce and the mushrooms on top of chicken thighs
