Sometimes, simple really is best. This bacon-stuffed portabello mushroom recipe is superbly simple and delightfully tasty.

What if you don’t have portabellos? No problem. We love a good portabello mushroom but you can also use any other large mushroom that’s stuff-able.

This recipe is paired with a gin & tonic cocktail with dehydrated orange slices. The richness and deep flavours of the dish as a whole are cut by the refreshing and complex notes of citrus and rose in the cocktail, making for a delightful pairing.

Bacon, Feta & Spinach Stuffed Portabellos



  1. Steam the mushrooms on a wire rack fitted in a large pot for about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove and place on a cooling rack and allow excess liquid to drain.
  3. Cut bacon into a chunky dice and fry until crispy. Add the butter and allow to caramelise and get a deep golden colour. Season well with pepper.
  4. Remove the bacon from the pan and cook the spinach in the bacon fat for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper and allow to cool slightly.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, add the crispy bacon bits, cooked spinach, fresh rocket torn into smaller pieces, and the oregano. Mix well.
  6. Crumble in the feta and give it a final toss.
  7. Generously spoon the mixture onto the portabellos and serve straight away.
