"Once you've acquired the agarics, the fun part is stuffin' 'em. I've used diced meat, mixed veg, and even imitation killcrab as fillin' before, but this here recipe is one of my favorite variations, hands down. Taste this spectacular can't possibly be legal!"
―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook[src]

Constable's Caps was a dish consisting of gray fungus stuffed with various fillings. The dish's name was inspired by the Kyuzo Outpost Militia of Niima Outpost on the planet Jakku,[1] who were led by a constable and wore Kyuzo war shield helmets[2] that bore a resemblance to the fungus caps used in the dish.[1] In 34 ABY,[3] the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs included a recipe for the dish in his cookbook The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook.[1]

In the book, Tuggs suggested that the best place to find large fungus to use in the recipe was the fungal forests of the[1] planet[4] Skako Minor, as the mushrooms of Jakku were rarely big enough to stuff. He stated that a wide range of fillings could be used to stuff the fungus, including diced meat, mixed vegetables, or imitation killcrab. Tuggs provided a recipe using his favorite filling, which he claimed tasted spectacular.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Constable's Caps was created as one of the recipes in the 2019 cookbook Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, which was written by Marc Sumerak and Chelsea Monroe-Cassel. The out-of-universe recipe uses button mushrooms cooked with butter and minced garlic, then stuffed and further baked with a mixture of panko breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, finely chopped green onions, chopped parsley, garam masala, salt, and pepper.[1]
