Ingredients

  • 5 slices bacon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 16 oz. whole mushrooms
  • 8 oz. hot Italian sausage (casings removed)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella (grated or shredded)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan (grated)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°
    Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Lay bacon strips in a single layer onto baking sheet, making sure not to overlap.
    Bake until crispy, 15 to 25 minutes.
    Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Chop and set aside.
  • In the large pan, melt the butter and add oil. Add the mushrooms and fry for 2-3 minutes to lightly brown mushrooms and release their juices (if any).
  • Add sausage and continue cooking until sausage is slightly browned. Add in the garlic and stir it through for a minute, until fragrant.
  • Pour in the wine and let reduce for 2 minutes, while occasionally stirring.
  • Next pour in the cream and add thyme and parsley. Reduce heat down to low and simmer about 4 minutes. Add the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. 
  • Add the chopped bacon to the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve warm.
