Bacon Wrapped King Oyster “Sea Scallops”

Robust king oyster mushrooms do an excellent job standing in for sea scallops in this holiday appetizer recipe. Strips of bacon are carefully wrapped around medallions of king oysters, secured with a toothpick, and then baked until crisp and tender.

6 large king oyster mushrooms
6 pieces of bacon, cut in half
Sea salt


1. Preheat over to 375F
2. Slice king oyster mushroom stem width-wise, into 1 inch thick medallions. From 6 mushrooms you should get about 12 medallions. You can reserve the cap to use in another recipe.
3. Wrap 1/2 a slice of bacon around each round and secure with a toothpick.
4. Bake on foil lined baking sheet for 35-45 minutes, or until bacon starts to crisp. Turn once halfway through.
5. Sprinkle with sea salt just before serving.
