As a crisp chill makes its way into the air, weekends are now abuzz with the seasonal overlap of sports such as Baseball and Football. Whether you’re cheering on your alma mater, or making the most of baseball playoff games, meaty All-American foods pair perfectly with your game-day spread. And it’s no secret that mushrooms and meat go hand in hand!
Showcasing the best way to include mushrooms in meals, Culinary Institute of America chef, Bill Briwa, and Mushroom Council president, Bart Minor take a closer look at using blending to boost the flavor of timeless American classics:
Beyond extending portion sizes and ramping up the nutrition in your favorite recipes, blending ground meat with mushrooms’ meaty, umami-rich flavor takes any meal to the next level! From a comfortable bowl of chili to a saucy sloppy joe, with a season of sports in full-force, we’re thrilled to share our favorite healthy takes on foods as American as apple pie:
