Warm Bacon Mushroom Dressing Recipe

A Multi-Use Dressing That Will Not Last Long!

Warm Bacon Mushroom Dressing Recipe

This dressing is chunky and ready to toss with potatoes, cooked carrots, or even pasta.  We like it drizzled on salads, but you could even spread a spoonful on toasted bits of baguette. You can make it up to a day ahead, but I really doubt once you taste it that it will last that long.


4 slices of bacon
2 cups sliced mushrooms
3 tbsp Sherry vinegar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
salt and pepper
2 tbsp flat leaf Italian parsley

  Cut the bacon slices into 1/2 inch pieces and cook in a skillet with 3 tbsp water until they start to become crispy.   Add the mushrooms and toss, cooking for about another 5-6 minutes until they are tender.  Stir in the sherry vinegar and 1/4 cup water. Simmer about a minute, or until the liquid is reduced in half.  Stir in the oil, parsley, and season with salt and pepper. 

Makes 2 cups
