We've recently moved, and I can't seem to find my Cuisine at Home with the Spinach/Bacon/Blue Cheese stuffed fillet recipe. Anyone have it?

Saute bacon in a saute pan over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add garlic and spinach; stir to coat with drippings. Add sherry and cook until nearly evaporated, about 5 minutes, scraping up the bits from the pan. Cool slightly.

Combine spinach mixture with cheese, thyme, and seasonings.

Tie filets; pat dry with paper towels and season. Sear steaks in oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a cooling rack; cut pockets in filets, as shown.

Stuff steaks with filling using a small spoon to push the filling under the flaps of meat. Pile more filling on top of the flaps. (Stuffed filets may be covered with plastic and chilled for up to 24 hours. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before roasting.) Sprinkle tops of filets with cheese just before finishing in the oven. Preheat oven to 400°. Roast filets on a rack for 20–30 minutes. Let rest, then remove strings before serving. Shown here with Béarnaise Sauce and Warm Roasted Vegetable Salad.

Thanks so much! It is an excellent recipe, and especially helpful because you can make it in advance for company. Of course, it is the one edition of the magazine that I can't find! I've made this many times. Happy New Year from Gloucester, Massachusetts!

Happy New Year from La Ceiba, Honduras, DV! Since it looks like you've found the filet mignon, maybe you could send me some in email. Better yet, if you're in Gloucester, maybe you could email me some cod! LOL!

Hey, DV, welcome to the forum. That's one of our favorite dishes to make when the kids aren't around. The younger ones don't do bleu cheeses.

I can understand their tastes. I hated roqueforte and blue cheese when I was a kid, until I was older. It tasted moldy, and until you develop the taste buds, it's no good to force the issue.

Maybe it would be good to use a milder sharp cheese, there are so many readily available on the market now.
