You know how you see something and you just HAVE to try it, well I saw this made in a video, no sound so I had to decide what temp and how long to cook it. It was also baked in the oven, but I decided to grill mine instead and add that char grill taste, and let me tell you, it was so worth it, this is a delicious, filling, soul satisfying dish.

Grill

Ingredients

1 large
fresh portabello mushrooms stems removed
4 oz
cheese, approx.
5 slice
pickled jalapeno
5 slice
thin bacon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
This is the final product, so worth the time to do.
2
Carefully remove stem and gills from portabello. Try not to make any cracks as it will leak cheese.
3
Place cheese inside mushroom. I used Muenster, but any good melting cheese would work.

The original video I saw used roasted poblano, I thought about using roasted Anaheim, but was in such a hurry to get going I just used slices of pickled jalapeno. Place peppers on top of cheese.
5
Place bacon on baking sheet fanned out like an *, then turn mushroom upside down and lay in center of bacon. Now wrap bacon up over mushroom one at a time. I stuck a few toothpicks across and underneath the bacon, not penetrating the mushroom. Now flip back over where mushroom is right side up. This is different than the video, but I have no idea how you could cook the mushroom upside down and not have all the cheese melt out.

I placed mine on my grill rack over direct heat for just a few minutes on each side, starting cap side up. Then when I had a little sear I moved it to the other side of the grill in a grill basket and used the indirect heat to cook it. I grilled it at 400ยบ for about 40 more minutes. I noticed toward the end that a little cheese was leaking out so I placed it leak side up, up against the grill basket facing the heat. It turned out totally delicious and I will make these again and again.
