Creamy Mushroom Sauce with Bacon and Thyme – one of the best ways to cook mushrooms! Mushrooms, bacon, thyme and cream create an excellent flavor combination: very savory, perfectly seasoned. This sauce makes a great accompaniment to grilled meats, chicken, pork, steaks, etc.
I love easy recipes and this one is no exception.
Start by cooking mushrooms in 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium heat in a large skillet for about 3 minutes, flipping once. Do not salt mushrooms – this will ensure the mushrooms get caramelized:
In the mean time, cook bacon, about 5 slices, (I cook it in the oven), drain the bacon from fat, chop the bacon into smaller bites, and add chopped, cooked bacon to the skillet:
Add heavy cream, salt, snipped fresh thyme, bring everything to boil, then reduce to simmer and simmer for about 2 minutes for the flavors to blend. Remove from heat and add more salt if needed. That’s it! Your sauce is ready to be served!
