Mushroom Bacon Melt

This is comfort food for sure.
We own our own business and work from home
so I'm always having to think up something for lunch.
This hot sandwich provides a quick and welcome meal.
  • 2 slices bacon cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 onion, cut in half and then sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter ( if needed)
  • 5 or 6 large mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheese - I prefer Swiss or Gryuere
  • whole wheat or 7 grain buns
  1. Fry bacon until crisp.
  2. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel, reserving 1 Tablespoon bacon fat
  3. Add sliced onion to the pan and cook over medium heat until wilted.
  4. Add mushrooms and butter and continue to cook until mushrooms and onions are browned.
  5. Add bacon pieces and sprinkle shredded cheese over top.
  6. Cover and remove from heat.
  7. Cut buns in half and toast lightly.
  8. Butter buns (if desired) and top with mushroom/melted cheese mixture.
  9. Serve with tossed salad.
