  • 1/2 cup Gruyere shredded (plus more for top)
  • 1 tbsp plain panko crumbs

  • Drizzle of olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  • Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

  • Once the spinach mixture cools a bit, add the cream cheese, Gruyere, panko crumbs, and most of the bacon bits; stir until well combined.
  • Taste and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, if needed.
  • Carefully remove the stems from each mushroom.
  • Place the mushrooms in a cast iron skillet (or baking dish) and drizzle with some olive oil; toss to coat evenly.
  • Place spoonfuls of the bacon & spinach mixture into each mushroom, making sure to gently press the mixture down into the mushrooms.
  • Sprinkle the top of each mushroom with a bit more shredded Gruyere.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining bacon bits.
  • Serve immediately. Enjoy.
