Mustard Glazed Bacon and Kale Stuffed Mushrooms + A Saucy Mama Mustard #Giveaway!

Mustard Glazed Bacon and Kale Stuffed Mushrooms If you’ve read this blog long enough, you should know by now that I absolutely love a good recipe challenge! From the Marx Foods challenges, to the Brooklyn Takedowns to BakerBettie’s Cookie Wars (also yeah we find out who wins this week!) So when I saw this 3-part mustard Chopped-like recipe challenge sponsored by Saucy Mama on Facebook, I was in! 

The challenge is simple, we were sent a selection of her mustards and we must create an appetizer, an entree and a dessert with the mustard and a secret ingredient that will be revealed in each successive round.  Only the top recipes will move on to each new category.  

Mustard Glazed Bacon and Kale Stuffed Mushrooms It was like a gift from above when they announced bacon would be our secret ingredient. Besides it being bacon and just the most wonderful thing on this planet, I immediately knew a simple brushing of mustard and getting baked in the oven would be the first start to my recipe.  The next part?  A great party appetizer that can be served hot or room temperature and so easy to balance with a drink in hand.  Stuffed mushrooms!  

These mustard glazed bacon and kale stuffed mushrooms will go like hot cakes, I promise you that.  With a simple filling of mushroom stems, shallots, panko, kale, bacon and the bite of the mustard it is perfection.

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  4. Finely chop the mushroom stems, and in a saute pan over medium heat with a tablespoon of vegetable oil saute until soft. About 5 minutes.

  6. Toss in the kale, cook until wilted and season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper.

  8. Place the cleaned mushroom caps on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  9. Stuff each mushroom cap with the filling and drizzle the extra virgin olive oil over the top of each mushroom.

    MMMMMM! I love mustard and this creamy garlic mustard sounds fantastic. I would have jumped for joy at the announcement of bacon as the secret ingredient too. I would have also been relieved it wasn’t something really crazy like in those actual Chopped challenges!

    It’s so awesome that you’re in all these challenges, Susan. I’m always too intimidated but I need to start having some confidence in myself, goshdarnit! This would be the perfect appie – what’s not to like? You definitely had me at “bacon.” I can’t wait to see what dessert you whip up with mustard!
