Making Bacon from Mushrooms!

We all know bacon tastes great and smells wonderful, but it’s not exactly healthy. In fact, it’s pretty unhealthy. So what if you could have bacon without having bacon? What if bacon could be relatively healthy? No, this isn’t a fairy tale – it’s specially cooked shiitake mushrooms.

This recipe comes from Erin Wyso of Olives for Dinner and Craig Dugas of Inspired Eats – check them out!

What You’ll Need
1 Pound Shiitake Mushrooms
1 (2) Teaspoons Sea Salt
4 (8) Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Let’s Get Cooking
– Step 1 –
Thinly slice your mushrooms.

– Step 2 –
In a bowl, mix 1 teaspoon of sea salt and 4 tablespoons of olive oil.

– Step 3 –
Stir in the mushrooms and coat them in the oil. You want a good coating – if it looks like there isn’t enough oil, add in the 4 extra tablespoons of oil and another teaspoon of salt.

– Step 4 –
Let the mushrooms marinate for 20 to 30 minutes.

– Step 5 –
Set your oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.

– Step 6 –
Spread the mushrooms evenly across the sheet – make sure they don’t overlap each other.

– Step 7 –
Bake for 10 minutes, flip them, and bake for another 15.

– Step 8 –
Increase the heat to 375 F and bake for 10 more minutes, flip them, and bake them for 10 more minutes. Use your best judgment when baking the mushrooms, because they’ll cook slower or faster depending on how thinly you sliced them. Also, they can burn easily so keep a close eye on them towards the end.

– Step 9 –
Move the mushrooms to paper towels and let them drain. It’s important to serve them shortly after cooking, as that’s when they’re crispiest.

Thanks again to Erin Wyso of Olives for Dinner and Craig Dugas of Inspired Eats!

I used this company a while ago and the man that came out was Cody. He really did a great job and everything looked, smelled and felt great after it dried. I used them again in May and the man that came was not really interested in doing a good job. I had to make him go back to several locations to clean it again because it didn't even look like anything had been done other than a quick once over with the machine. The stains were there, the smells were there, and in the end when it dried it was disgusting. The carpets were almost sticky when they dried. It was so bad that I went to home depot and rented a shampooer and spent the whole next day recleaning everything. Nothing was done properly and I was not happy at all with the end product. The man was very nice though, I will say that. He just wasn't a good fit for thourogh cleaning. DW. - 05/28/2020

Chiquita was the representative that came to clean the carpet in one of our bedrooms and she did an amazing job. She made sure that the stains and odor were completely gone before leaving. She was friendly and professional. Would highly recommend this company. MS. - 05/25/2020

CJ who came was very professional and courteous. I had stains on carpet from my sister trying to feed through a feeding tube. So far stains are gone. CW. - Dallas, TX - 02/06/2020
