There’s something that’s very gratifying about cooking for my folks – I teasingly call them my “victims” because they get the brunt of my new recipes and various concoctions. You’d think at their age (late 80s early 90s) they’d be a little jaded about food so I love it when their eyes light up and I get the little happy noises when they eat. That’s what happened when I served these Cheddar Bacon Jalapeno Stuffed Mushrooms.
If you live in the Midwest, you’re probably familiar with Hy-Vee chain of grocery stores. They have an absolutely marvelous meat counter with all kinds of grab & cook options. My folks love their burgers along with quite a few of the options there. Me? I’m all about the Salmon Burgers. The only problem for cheap lil’ ol’ me? The price. And it’s not that the prices are outlandish, it’s just that they are a lot more than homemade options.
