These Roasted Mushrooms with Bacon are always a hit at the holiday dinner table and frankly, any time of year. Roasted mushrooms you say? YES, and you’re going to love them.

Roasted Mushrooms with Bacon

I have a great side dish for you and these roasted mushrooms deliver! Typically sautéed with butter, these are ROASTED in a skillet for 20 minutes.

Couldn’t be any easier, right?!

Roasting brings out a wonderful, intense mushroom flavor, and when paired with the bacon, pop of freshness from the pomegranate, it’s delicious!

Roasted Mushrooms with Bacon

I simply pan fry up some bacon and set the crispy bacon aside. Leaving the bacon fat in the skillet, I add the quartered mushrooms and toss to coat.

In the oven they go to roast for 20 minutes. The aroma is wonderful.

After roasting I add melted butter, minced garlic and lemon juice.

Stir it up and serve with some pomegranate arils for freshness and chopped, bright parsley. Enjoy!

      1. Thank you! It looks like 2 lbs of mushrooms are going to be a LOT, but I’m guessing it really cooks down. Making for company tonight for the first time – I can always trust your recipes!

        This came out fantastic; everyone loved it! The proportions of bacon to mushrooms was perfect and there was not so much bacon grease as to make it soggy or overdone. thank you kevin!!!

      3. Excellent Stephanie! Thanks so much for taking the time to come back and let me know! 🙂

    Love how easy these mushrooms are Kevin. My husband Tom would love them. Perfect easy side for the holiday season!

  3. Hey Kevin! I buy mushrooms every week, that’s how much we love them! Every Christmas I make a prime rib roast and this would be a perfect side for that! Of course I’ll have to make it a couple of times before then just to be sure 🙂

  4. I have a ton of mushrooms in our fridge (they were on sale and couldn’t pass up…plus I’m a huge fan). These sound wonderful…and who could resist mushrooms AND bacon?? YUM!
