Mushroom Bacon

January 24, 2019

Makes: about 1/2 cup "bacon"
Prep time: 2 min
Cook time: 35 min


  • 2 1/2 cups sliced Portobello mushrooms, in 2-inch pieces roughly 1/8-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (or other high–heat friendly oil)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
In This Recipe


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. On a rimmed sheet pan, toss the mushrooms with oil (they’ll absorb it). Sprinkle over the mushrooms: the salt, black pepper, and Cayenne pepper. Toss until evenly coated. Spread out so they’re not touching one another; otherwise, they’ll steam.
  3. Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes in total, flipping once midway through, until they’re crispy and browned with just the slightest spot of chewiness remaining in the center.
