Picture please. Can't figure out from instructions if the mushrooms are stuffed or not.
Hi Louise, we're in the process of creating photos for each and every recipe on the site, a process that will take a bit. As you can see from the directions, the mushrooms are all tossed together, so they're not stuffed. This is really easy, and good. I hope you'll give it a try. And hopefully there will be a photo connected with this recipe very soon!
I made these for our Christmas dinner. They were gobbled up in seconds. I thought my guests were going to lick the platter clean! Thanks for this great, extremely easy recipe. Yum!
Thank you, Lynn. I do hope to get a photo of these up at some point; I haven't made this in ages. Thanks for the reminder!
