Mushrooms Stuffed with Bacon, Blue, & Cherry {giveaway}

Mushrooms. I could seriously eat them every single day of the week. Their earthiness is something I find hard to resist, whether grilled, sauteed, or in this case, stuffed.

I remember making stuffed mushrooms as a kid, with a recipe of Mom’s that involved lots of gooey mozzarella cheese. It was a favorite appetizer that our family made for special occasions, and there were never any leftovers.

This recipe for Mushrooms Stuffed with Bacon, Blue Cheese, & Dried Cherry is a little more involved than the one from my childhood, but incredibly worth the extra time and effort. The meaty bites are packed with flavor. Lots of yummy flavor. I love how the salty bacon and blue cheese is offset by little pops of sweet dried cherry. It’s a fabulous coming together of tastes and textures. My “blue cheese is gross” oldest daughter even downed a few. There really is no resisting.

………………………………………………………………………………

And I have a GIVEAWAY to share with you from Ile de France!

Mushrooms Stuffed with Bacon, Blue Cheese, & Dried Cherry

Yield: 24 to 26 stuffed mushrooms

Ingredients:

  • 24 to 26 medium to large sized baby portabello mushrooms (about 1-1/2" to 2" in diameter)
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/4 c. small diced shallot
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/3 c. small diced dried cherries (I love the ones from Trader Joe’s!)
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 T. dried bread crumbs

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350°.

Pop the stems off the mushrooms, then finely dice the stems. Set aside both the stems and the caps.

In a skillet over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to cool. Add the diced mushroom stems and shallots to the same skillet with the bacon drippings, and give a stir every now and then. Once the shallots and mushrooms have softened (turn the heat down if they are browning too much), about 10 minutes or so, remove them to another paper towel-lined plate to cool.

In a separate bowl, combine the cream cheese and blue cheese. Stir in the thyme, cherries, black pepper, and the cooled bacon, mushroom stems, and shallots. Using a teaspoon, fill the mushroom caps with a mound of the cheesy stuffing. Place in a baking dish and sprinkle with a bit of bread crumbs. Pop them into the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until softened and nicely browned. They are best eaten warm, so just let them cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

    I would eat blue cheese sprinkled on a rock if you let me. I really go crazy when Ann brings home a wedge of Maytag (my favorite). My favorite way of preparing it is to make a Blue cheese salad dressing that was handed down from my aunt Marjie Bielmaier. So simple to make and extremely tasty.

    connected with my memories with you, I would have to say cheese curds at the Minnesota State Fair!

    My favorite cheese is the award-winning St. Pete’s Select blue cheese from Caves of Faribault, made right here in my community. This blue cheese and other cheeses are aged in the St. Peter Sandstone caves along the Straight River. There’s a delightful retail store/eatery in our historic downtown with a wide selection of cheeses, etc.

    I enjoy my blue cheese most in a simple Romaine salad mixed with cucumber slices and fresh fruit like strawberries or grapes or raspberries. I usually top it with a lemon poppyseed dressing.

    • farmgirl replied on January 7th, 2012 at 9:46 am

      Sounds delicious, Audrey! I’ve had that St. Pete’s blue – it’s wonderful.

    Savannagal — January 6, 2012 at 11:12 am

    I love all cheese. I’ve only once had a cheese I couldn’t eat. I’ve have too many favorites to honestly choose. But since I have to select one, I’ll say blue cheese. I buy an Amish smoked blue at my local grocery store that knocks my socks off. I could eat it at every meal – and sometimes I do. Thanks for the giveaway.

    • farmgirl replied on January 7th, 2012 at 9:44 am

      So I’m definitely curious about the cheese you couldn’t eat!! That smoked blue sounds fabulous!

      • savannagal replied on January 7th, 2012 at 12:27 pm

        The cheese I could not choke down was a German beer kase. I know there’s probably many versions, but the one I had was gross. I think I got it at a German delicatessen, if I remember right. It smelled okay, but the flavor was horrible. I just could not eat it and ended up throwing it away. Have you ever had Danish Tilset? It’s a type of Havarti. I’ve eaten it my whole life. Our family calls it “stinky cheese”, and so do the folks at the grocery store. My family is from Germany and they ate it “back home” before the war. It doesn’t taste anything like it smells, thankfully, and is very tasty. We eat it on rye with plum jam. Sounds weird, but tastes awesome. If you haven’t had it, you ought to try it some time.

    goat cheese. hands down. on eggs, salads, on salmon (whip the cheese with lemon juice, chives, s&p–this is my current favorite), there are more…goat cheese is one of those things, kind of like avocados/guacomole, that if there’s a menu and something has goat cheese in or on it, i’ll probably order it.

    I’m another one on the goat cheese wagon. oh my, but it’s delicious!! I smear it on everything but if I had to say my fave dish it would be a simple mixed green salad, a great homemade balsamic vinagrette, some nuts, and huge globs of goat cheese. My second fave cheese is blue cheese. mmmm.

    I don’t know that I could pick one favorite – I love all cheeses. I have a drawer in my fridge devoted to my cheese obsession. They’re like children – they’re all unique and special to me. Il de France does make excellent brie. It’s a regular at our house.

    I love cheese! My favorite cheese, however, must be cheddar in all its iterations. I love a grilled cheese sandwich dripping with cheese and butter.

    Cheese is like kids, you can’t pick a favorite because they are all so unique! However, I do love to take goat cheese and make beet napoleons using red and yellow beets and a nice thick aged balsamic drizzle. Top it all with chopped pistachios and place on a bed of delicate greens and serve.

    Like many Latino families, ours has made pork tamales at Christmas for many, many years. Some years ago, we decided to add to this tradition by adding cheese tamales. We have tried various combinations of cheeses, but honestly, the one I think really smooths everything out is the cream cheese. Not a huge fan of it by itself, but it is undeniably a wonderful cheese.

Definitely will go in my binder to make again!
