stuffed shrooms

This was our first week of school and it was a bit of an adjustment. I had every intention of switching our bedtime way before the start of school so that it wasn't such a shock but you know how that goes. "The best laid plans, blah, blah, blah...". I had so much trouble getting to sleep at the earlier time. My mind would not shut up! That is how this recipe came to be. My mind was on my blog and what fun recipe I would come up with next.

I couldn't find a recipe online for this anywhere so this is an original of mine. It's quite tasty!

What you will need for this recipe :

6-8 large portabello mushrooms
4 medium yukon gold potatoes
3 cloves garlic, squashed a bit
1/3 cup light cream cheese
2 oz crumbled feta (blue cheese would be awesome too!)
5 slices of turkey bacon, chopped and cooked crisp
1/3 cup chopped mushrooms, sauteed in a little butter and olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper
1/4 cup chopped chives
cracked pepper
malt vinegar

Gently brush the mushrooms to clean up a bit. Use a spoon to scrape off the gills (I just learned what these were called.). Brush with olive oil and place top side up (flip from how they are in this photo) and place into a 425 oven for just 5 minutes. Remove from oven. Set aside.

Peel and cut potatoes into chunks. Cover potatoes and garlic with water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender. Drain. In a large mixing bowl combine the butter, cream cheese and potatoes. Whip them into shape! Add the feta, bacon, mushrooms, and chives. Mix until well combined.

Place a generous amount of potatoes onto the inside of each mushroom. Drizzle with malt vinegar. Place back into the oven for 8-10 minutes or until potatoes are nicely browned. (I only left mine in for 5 minutes. I should have left them in a touch longer to brown.)

*You can actually cook the mushrooms while the potatoes are boiling to save time.*

The flavor in these was absolutely terrific!

Try them, try them
you will see;

you can eat them
in a tree.

In a boat
or on the shore;

they will leave you
wanting more!

To go vegetarian with this recipe just substitute a veg bacon. This could also go vegan I think by substituting the butter for margarine and using vegan cheese alternatives. There are such great ones out there now!

I have had requests for more vegan and vegetarian choices and I promise to post them soon. I have been scouring my veg cookbooks for ideas.

Print me!

But these mushrooms?! OH, those look GOOD!

Megan said...

Kim - you are so creative! I probably say that every time I visit your blog. Why have I never thought of a potato stuffing?! I usually stuff mushrooms with spinach, pork or sausage, parmesan, onions, and bread crumbs.
