Mikko's Bacon Grilled Mushrooms

I have been to Finland a couple of times.  The last time was in the summer of 2011 where I met my cousin and my host brother, Mikko.  He took us to their summer cabin where he grilled for us.  One of the things that we had as an appetizer were these wonderful bacon wrapped mushrooms.  They are filled with a mild blue cheese and as the cheese melts and the bacon crisps it all comes together in a mushroom cup.  These are best served nearly immediately off the grill, but be careful not to burn yourself on the lovely melted blue cheese.

Mikko's Mushrooms

Mushrooms - your choice the type
8 oz. blue cheese

Wash the mushrooms and remove the stem.  They should just pop out.  You want a nice sized cap, but not too big.  Ideally, you want the same number of mushrooms as bacon slices.  Divide the blue cheese into how many mushroom pieces you have.  Stuff the blue cheese into the cap of the mushroom.  Then wrap the bacon around the outside of the mushroom.  Grill until the bacon is crisp.  Serve after a few minutes while the cheese is still not, but not too hot!

Serves 4-6
