Bacon Jalapeno Stuffed Mushrooms
Give your stuffed mushroom appetizer a makeover with a little kick and a
dab of tart-sweet cherry to contrast with salty bacon. From Elizabeth
Hernandez, Prepared Foods, Willowbrook, Illinois.
6 slices bacon
24 medium white/button or cremini mushrooms, stems removed and retained
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 fresh jalapeņo pepper, finely chopped (seeded, if desired)
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
3 tablespoons Dalmatia Sour Cherry Spread
Preheat oven to 375°F. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until
crisp, 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate, cool and
finely chop. Discard all but 2 teaspoons grease from skillet; return to
medium heat, add mushroom stems, onion, jalapeņo and salt. Cook, stirring
occasionally, until very dry and lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer
to a food processor and pulse just until chopped. Add bacon and parsley;
pulse until combined. Spoon some of the mixture into each mushroom cap, top
with 1/4 teaspoon sour cherry spread and arrange on a large baking sheet.
Bake until mushrooms are tender and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Let
cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
