Helpful Tips and FAQs

The best size of Mushrooms for this recipe

We used a combination of Cremini Mushrooms and white mushrooms in this recipe. Mushrooms that are 1.5 to 2 inches in size work best for the cooking times in this recipe. If you use a larger or smaller mushroom, be aware that the time required in the oven may differ.

Can I use real bacon bits in place of fried bacon?

Using fresh bacon provides flavour to the low-carb stuffed mushrooms. If you use real bacon pieces, make sure to add a little extra oil to the skillet to compensate for the lack of bacon grease in the pan. Be mindful that any substitutions or changes to the original recipe can alter the final nutritional information.

How to clean mushrooms.

Many people say not to wash mushrooms but to use a mushroom brush instead. I prefer washing them thoroughly before using them in recipes or eating them raw in salads etc. I wash them in a colander under running water, using a brush to remove any stubborn dirt. I find the key yo preventing sogginess is to always thoroughly dry them after washing. I use a clean kitchen towel or a paper towel and pat them dry. Mushrooms bruise easily, so a gentle wash is preferred.

You can also put them into a bowl of water and soak them for a few minutes and then dry them. If you choose this method, give the mushrooms a shake to remove any water from the underside and then dry them.

Removing troublesome stems

If the stems of your mushrooms break off or don’t remove easily, use a melon baller or small spoon to remove any bits of remaining stem pieces.

Reducing Sodium

If you are on a sodium-restricted diet, use low-sodium cheeses and salt-free bacon (if available) or omit the bacon altogether. The bacon does not contain carbs, so it will not affect the carbs. Removal of the bacon will reduce the other nutritional values.

Substituting the Cheddar Cheese with other cheeses.

Feel free to substitute the cheddar cheese with a different cheese. It is important to choose a cheese that melts well, as not all cheese melts the same, such as feta cheese. Mozzarella is a good alternative or a mozzarella-cheddar combination works well.

Storing and Freezing instructions.

Freezing mushrooms, stuffed or unstuffed, is a gamble. Mushrooms do not handle moisture very well, so there are a couple of things that will give you the best results.

Make sure the mushrooms are very dry before freezing.

If you wish to freeze these stuffed mushrooms, without baking them. Simply place them in an airtight container that is lined with a paper towel and cover and freeze for up to 2 weeks.

For the best results freeze baked or unbaked low carb stuffed mushrooms in a vacuum-sealed bag. The vacuum-sealed bag will eliminate some of the moisture that collects during freezing.

To store leftover stuffed mushrooms in the refrigerator, place them in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat in a warm oven or microwave.
