Cheddar Sriracha Stuffed Mushrooms: Stuffed Cookbook Review & Giveaway


I’ve been following Dan Whalen’s blog, The Food in my Beard, for a while now. I love the way he approaches comfort food. He brings excitement and flavor to our everyday dishes. When I heard about his new cookbook coming out, I knew I had to have it.

The cookbook, Stuffed: The Ultimate Comfort Food Cookbook is genius. Pure genius. I love amazing stuff wrapped in more amazing stuff! I mean who doesn’t? Kind of similar to where I went with my kimchi dumplings. This cookbook features dishes inspired by all ethnicities. From tamales to eclairs, this cookbook has it all. It even has homemade tater tots that totally rival my nacho stuffed tots! I mean, how can you beat fish & chips tater tots? That’s just brilliant!

When the book arrived at my door, I couldn’t open the package fast enough. I knew from Dan’s blog that he dreams up amazing flavor combinations. This book just solidified my stance. Every recipe in the book looks like something work making. The Aloo Gobi Samosas are totally happening in my kitchen soon, as are the Chana Masala Stuffed Grape Leaves.

I’ve been on a bit of a Sriracha kick lately. Well, I’ve always been a fan of it, but it seems to really be getting in to everything I made lately. So when I came upon the Cheddar Sriracha Stuffed Mushrooms, I knew I had to share this recipe with you. Thanks to the amazing publishers, I’ve got a cookbook giveaway for you as well. So be sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post. You can also head on over to Amazon to buy this cookbook. You won’t be disappointed.

    So many great stuffed foods to choose just one but I do love a stuffed mushroom and this recipe sounds delightful. If I had to choose just one favorite stuffed food it would probably be jalapeno poppers though.

  7. Hmm, well for sure, it’s NOT stuffed green peppers. Bad childhood memories, sorry mom, lol. Stuffed potatoes would be my fave.

  9. Nice combo — cheese (especially tangy cheddar) and sriracha. My sons-in-law will LOVE this. That’s a lot of sriracha, must be nice and spicy. This is a good one to remember for Superbowl snack.
