print recipe

1 pound large mushrooms, your choice
2/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt (I use less)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
4 scallions, thinly sliced
Lettuce leaves
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled


Preheat grill to high. Cut off the mushroom stems flush with caps. Brush with olive oil. Place on the grill, turning and basting occasionally, until browned and slightly softened but still firm, about 15 to 20 minutes. In a bowl, add the lemon juice, mustard. Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Whisk in remaining olive oil until sauce is well blended. Thinly slice mushrooms. Add the mushrooms and scallions to the sauce and toss. Cover and marinate, tossing occasionally, 1 to 2 hours at room temperature. Place on lettuce leaves and top with bacon.
