Mushrooms have always been one of my go to side dishes. They are so easy to make and pair nicely with almost all protein options. My Garlic and Bacon Mushrooms are so full of flavor. They are tossed with sauteed garlic, shallots, crispy bacon and ghee and finished with parsley, along with salt and pepper to taste.

Garlic & Bacon Mushrooms

My husband Joel has never been a big fan of mushrooms so I was a little nervous to ask him to be my taste tester. However, I was presently surprised when he ate the entire bowl and went back for seconds. That is a WIN! I always love when I can create a food he doesn’t like in a new and delicious way that changes his mind.

Garlic & Bacon Mushrooms

Building meals for the week can sometimes get boring and frustrating. I find that if I top a boring piece of protein, such as a chicken breast with these mushrooms, it changes the entire dish. These mushrooms are great to add on top of pork chops, steaks and chicken. Although they can serve as a great protein topper, they can additionally serve as the perfect side dish or appetizer.
