Grill up a double batch of these tasty and tailgate friendly appetizers, stuffed with all the cheese and bacon you can handle.
If you thought you liked stuffed mushrooms before, you should try them from the grill. Cooked over charcoal (I use and recommend Kingsford), they pick up an even richer flavor with that unmistakable chargrilled aroma. Oh, and if you thought that breadcrumbs and blue cheese were the only way to stuff a ‘shroom, I got news for you. Step aside and make way for the classic popper trinity of jalapeño, cream cheese and bacon. Because, bacon.
I particularly love these grilled stuffed mushrooms for tailgate season. The mushies themselves are a great fall ingredient, and their handy size makes for perfect finger food. And finger food is what you need to accompany football watching. Ain’t nobody got time for silverware. Perhaps the most practical advantage, these mushrooms can be assembled in advance, so you can have them ready to go then grill them up as needed.
One of the secret weapons to this recipe is the addition of Hardcore Carnivore Amplify – it’s like no other seasoning you’ve tried before. Because it’s not really a seasoning. It’s more like, a savory boosting powder. It’s all natural with no MSG, but it’s made with a bunch of savory, umami ingredients like chicken fat powder, tamari and yeast concentrates. It basically enhances the flavor of anything you add it to, with a delicious “I dunno what that is, but I LOVE it” profile.
One caution on these grilled stuffed mushrooms – double the batch. You’re going to run out of these quickly. And remember, chef’s privilege means you always get the first bite.Print
