Our recipe: Bacon CHUPA CHUPS (HERE the italian version)
Ingredients (4 person):
- 100 gr. of bacon (round slices)
- 200 gr. of mushrooms
- 10 chestnuts (you can buy in bulk at the supermarket)
- Salt, pepper
The realization of this recipe is very simple: the Chupa Chups consist of crispy bacon filled with a "mousse" of mushrooms and chestnuts, all on a breadstick .
Wash the mushrooms, dry them and put them in a blender (food processor, mixer, what you have) with salt, pepper and boiled chestnuts: mix until you obtain a semi-liquid compound, and then pour it the pan. You can help yourself with a spoon.
Cook until all the water contained in mushrooms dries off, for about 10 minutes (depending on the heat of the pan, taste it before removing from the stove!).
Proceed now to the preparation of Chupa Chups of bacon: grab a slice of bacon, then with the hand create a small ball of mixture of mushrooms and chestnuts and put in the center of the slice of bacon.
Close it all up to create a sort of meatball.
Go on, in order to prepare all Chupa Chups, then, in a hot pan, cook all of them for 4 minutes until the bacon becomes crispy (be careful not to burn it!).
Remove from the pan the bacon balls, place them on a plate with blotting paper
and insert one breadstick in each meatball: serve hot with a good glass of "Otto mesi" red wine.
