>> 4 oz. cream cheese softened
>> 2 tbsp red onion, finely chopped
>> 2 tbsp mushrooms, finely chopped
>> 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
>> 1 small jalapeno, finely chopped
>> 2 slices of cooked bacon (optional)
>> 1 tsp salt
>> 1 tsp black pepper
>> 20 milkweed pods
>> grated cheese of your choice
Heat oven to 375°F.
Place milkweed pods in a large pot of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for ten minutes. You will hear popping sounds, this is ok. Remove from stove, drain and let cool.
Place the softened cream cheese in a bowl and mix in all the remaining ingredients. Be sure to blend well and set aside.
Remove the seeds and silk from the boiled milkweed pods. You may have to use a paring knife to split the seed pods. Spoon in some cream cheese filling until the pod is full. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Once completed, take some grated cheese and sprinkle over the pods. Place in oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes. If desired, broil to crisp up the cheese.
Ingredient Tip: Use any combination of spices that you enjoy.
