…for stuffed mushrooms with spinach:
Wash the spinach leaves, then heat up a large pan with a piece of butter & gradually add the spinach leaves to the pan & allow to wilt over medium heat & occasionally turning. Put the wilted spinach leaves in a baking dish, add 1 pressed clove of garlic & season well with salt & pepper to taste.
Then stir everything briefly so that spinach, garlic & spices are mixed well & then spread the spinach leaves in the baking dish, afterwards set aside. Clean the mushrooms, then “break out” the stems & place the mushrooms on the spinach in the baking dish. Preheat the oven to 200°C (top/bottom heat) in good time.
Finely chop the mushroom stems. Peel off a large onion & chop finely as well. Cut the bacon into fine strips. Then heat up a large pan with a dash of oil, add the mushroom stems, onions & bacon to the pan & sear over medium heat for 2 – 3 minutes, turning occasionally.
Finally season with salt & pepper to taste & stir in 200 grams of creme fraiche, then remove the pan from the heat & distribute the filling on the mushrooms & fill them with it. Finally sprinkle all mushrooms with a little grated Parmesan & bake in the preheated oven for about 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
Take the finished mushrooms out of the oven, serve them on plates & dish up with toasted bread slices, for example. Have fun cooking at home!
