Stuffed beets

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 larges Beets
6 tablespoons Grated sharp cheese
2 tablespoons Bread crumbs
2 tablespoons Sour cream
1 tablespoon Pickle relish
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
¼ cup Butter
¼ cup White wine

Hollow out beets, or use beets that have been used for making candy cane garnishes.

Cook the hollowed out beets in lightly salted water until tender.

Cool and remove the skins. Heat oven to 350F. Mix the cheese, bread crumbs, sour cream, pickle relish and seasonings. Stuff the beets with this mixture and place in a shallow greased baking dish. Brush with butter and bake uncovered in a 350 F oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Melt the butter and mix with the white wine and baste occasionally to keep moist.
