This is a recipe that I have adapted from the Real Mom Cookbook. I love mushrooms and I love these. I usually saute the rest of the mushrooms from the pack and serve them with dinner. You could probably use canned mushrooms but I prefer to buy the fresh ones.
The original recipe also has a sauce that goes with it but my kids don’t like the sauce and prefer to eat with their hands whenever they can. These are also great to make for parties or get-togethers.
