Puffball S’mores
Joe McFarland    ~     Makanda, Illinois
TIP: Giant Puffballs occur in central and northern Illinois grasslands and forests, usually around September. The interior must be pure white to be edible--and remember to always cook wild mushrooms.
Cutting into a fresh puffball is strangely like cutting into a giant marshmallow, but without the stickiness. If a marshmallow could be a mushroom, it would be a puffball, which brings us to this impossible leap: Puffball S’mores.
What better way to salute the campfire classic than to switch the marshmallow with mushroom, meat for chocolate and bread for Graham crackers. A layer of melted Swiss cheese covers this bacon-and-mushroom party pleaser. more sizzle.
