Do you remember when I first started posting here? Well if you don't remember, and apparently I forgot my own blog-aversary too, it was with a post for a contest with the Real Women of Philadelphia.
The cookbook that I'll be in with the Real Women of Philadelphia is almost out and now there's another contest! This time the prize is for a dream vacation and entries must be inspired by the destination you wish to visit.
My Dream Destination is French Polynesia. I'd love to visit Tahiti and see the beaches, the culture, and taste the food. The food is something I've only researched because it's not really something you can get in Canada, but by getting a little creative, I think I've managed to make a fun recipe that says French Polynesia.
My French Polynesia Mushroom Caps incorporate a stuffing of bacon, spinach, and Philly as a Canadian take on Polynesian suckling pig, fafa (taro leaves), and coconut milk, are surrounded with crescent roll dough as a Canadian take on French croissants, and topped with a sprinkle of French parsley and Parmesan cheese.
The crescent roll dough makes the appetizer easy to pick up so that the mushrooms don't slip from your fingers and everything about them is delicious. You have to try them!
1 package of crescent roll dough (package to contain enough dough to make 8 crescent rolls)
6 slices of bacon
1/4 cup baby spinach, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
3 tablespoons breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Philadelphia Cream Cheese
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
