Last Minute DIY Gift For Dad

They've always said the way to man's heart is through his stomach! If you live close to your ol' man, why not surprise him with your awesome culinary skills? These are super easy to prepare and delicious! The ingredients can certainly be switched out for vegan versions. Dad doesn't need another tie, fishing lure or puzzle!


12 large jalapeños
2 cups mushrooms, finely chopped
3/4 cup cheese (anything that melts well)
6 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/3 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
12 slices of turkey bacon or uncured bacon


1. Preheat the oven to 450˚.
2. Remove the stems from the jalapeños. Slice each one in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and the white membranes inside. You may want to use a spoon or wash your hands very carefully afterwards. Do not touch your eyes! Use gloves if you’re particularly sensitive.
3. Combine the mushrooms, cheese, yogurt and garlic in a bowl, stir well. Scoop about 1 teaspoon of the mushroom mixture into each jalapeño.
4. Slice each bacon strip in half lengthwise, that’s hot-dog style, folks. Wrap the bacon around each jalapeño, secure with a toothpick.
5. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

These can also be thrown on the grill! They're done when the bacon is cooked, the cheese is melted and the jalapeños have char marks! we hope you and your pops or whoever you choose to celebrate with enjoy and have a healthy and enjoyable day!
