  • 1 1/2 cups shredded havarti cheese
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 4 large eggs

Stilton Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

stuffed mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms can be refridgerated until you’re ready to bake them which makes them a perfect make-ahead appetizer.

By Guest Blogger Christine Hyatt

Ingredients

12 large cremini mushrooms
2 thick slices of bacon, coarsely chopped (about 1/2 c.)
1/2 c. onion, minced
3 oz. Stilton, crumbled (about 1/2 c.)*
1/2 c. Panko breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. parsley, chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Clean mushrooms with a moist paper towel. Remove stems and coarsely chop, set aside. Place mushroom caps, underside up in a medium baking dish.

In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook bacon about 3 minutes stirring occasionally, until slightly crisp and fat has rendered. Add onion and cook 2 minutes. Add chopped mushroom stems and cook an additional 1-2 minutes, until mushrooms are tender and onions are translucent. Remove from heat.

Transfer onion mixture to a medium bowl and allow to cool 3-5 minutes. Add crumbled Stilton, panko and parsley. Stir until mixture is well combined and holds together when gently squeezed. Fill mushroom caps with about 1 tbsp. of filling.

At this point, mushrooms can be refrigerated until ready to bake. Bake mushrooms for 25-30 minutes until mushrooms are tender and filling is golden brown. Serve immediately or at room temperature.

*Stilton is an English blue cheese made at only a handful of dairies. For this recipe, I used Royal Mowbray from Costco, a surprisingly delicious and budget friendly selection available in my somewhat limited market.

(For the record, I also sought out other versions and only found Borough Market at my local Whole Foods which, even after a special trip, turned out to be very unbalanced and quite salty. Boo! Somerdale makes a readily available version which is quite tasty and stocked at many upscale delis around the US.)

Aged Cheddar and Bacon in Puff Pastry Appetizers

Aged Cheddar and Bacon in Puff PastryThese tasty morsels will be a hit at your appetizer party or buffet.

With the combination of cheddar cheese, bacon and light as air puff pastry what’s not to love?

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 piece (12 x 12 inches) frozen puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 6 ounces sliced bacon cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 package (7 ounces) Kerrygold Aged Cheddar cheese

Preparation
  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. On a floured work surface cut the puff pastry into 24 scalloped or straight-edged 2-inch rounds. Or use a scalloped 2-inch tartlet pan as a cutter. Combine the egg yolk with 2 teaspoons water and brush a little of the mixture across the top of each piece. Bake according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a frying pan large enough to hold the bacon in a single layer, cook bacon until lightly browned and not too crispy. Transfer to paper towels.
  3. To assemble the appetizers, using a serrated knife, carefully cut the puff pastry in half like a hamburger bun. Spread 1/2 teaspoon mustard on the bottom of each piece. Place a piece of bacon on the mustard. Cut 12 slices of cheese just less than 1/4-inch thick and cut the cheese slices in half; place a piece on the bacon. Top with the other half of puff pastry.
  4. For serving, arrange the puff pastry on a cookie sheet and warm in a 275°F oven until the cheese just starts to wilt, 5 to 7 minutes.

Serves
Makes 24 pieces

Notes, Tips & Suggestions
Variation: Instead of bacon and mustard, spread puff pastry with fruit chutney.
