Bacon Wrapped Enoki Mushrooms

Party Tray of bacon wrapped Enoki mushrooms
1 package bacon
2-3 packages Enoki mushrooms*
1 bundle green onions
toothpicks
Large, rimmed baking pan / cookie sheet
Fresh cracked sea salt
Fresh cracked black pepper
3 cloves garlic
3/4″ small piece of ginger (about the size of an average woman’s finger from tip to first knuckle)
1 Tbsp water
*Where to get Enoki Mushrooms: Seattle folks, you can get them easily at HT Market, Ranch 99, Uwajimaya, or most other Asian Markets. Sometimes they are also carried at stores like QFC, too (though more expensive at non-Asian stores)…
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Take mushrooms out of package and cut off the last 1″ – 1.5″ at the base where vermiculite may still be present.
  • Break packages of Enoki mushrooms into mini-bundles. They should be about this big…

  • Wash green onions, then carefully use paring knife to slice them in half the long way, then shorten by half.
  • In a mini food processor, puree the garlic and ginger. Add the Tbsp water as needed to help it blend. Pour pureed garlic ginger into a ramekin and set aside with a 1/8 tsp spoon.
  • Cut package of bacon in half so that bacon strips are half as long.
  • Wrap each Enoki mushroom bundle with a piece of green onion of approximate equal or longer length by using a piece of bacon. Use a toothpick to hold ingredients in place. Lay out on pan.
This is the approximate proportions of bacon to green onion to Enoki mushroom you want.

  • Once they are all lined up on your tray(s), add a 1/8 tsp dollop of the garlic ginger puree to the top of the bacon wrapped Enoki mushrooms.
  • Crack a heavy hand of pepper and a tiny bit of salt over the bundles.
  • Roast in oven for 30-45 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked enough for your tastes.
  • Drain bundles on paper towels (if necessary), and serve.
