Ingredients
  1. 1 cup panko crumbs
  2. ½ pound good quality bacon, chopped
  3. ½ cup Parmesan
  4. 1 shallot
  5. 1 cup craisins
  6. Mayonnaise to bind

  9. olive oil
Instructions
  1. Start by cooking the bacon, lay it on a foil lined baking sheet. Cook in a 375 degree oven until it’s crispy. Remove from oven and lay the bacon on paper towels so that it drains the grease off. Chop coarsely.
  2. Place the shallot and bacon in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until minced. Remove to a bowl and stir in the panko, parmesan, raisins, and enough mayo to bind it all together. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon mixture into mushroom caps and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle more Parmesan on top of each cap.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature

Wine Pairing:

These stuffed mushrooms paired perfectly with the Walls Vineyards Stanley Groovy. The Stanley Groovy is a Portugese style red blend. I found the wine to be a bit ‘hot’ meaning the alcohol really came thru so the tartness of the cranberry helped balance everything out, while the bacon really boosted the flavors of the wine.Stanley Groovy
