This tailgate favorite involves minimal prep work and packs a ton of melty goodness – all ready in time for kickoff. Three kinds of mushrooms – shiitake, oyster and portobello – bring an earthy flavor to the Monterey Jack cheese and McCormick® Brown Gravy Mix base. (Morel hunting is very popular in South Dakota!) Try it with onion rings, fries or crusty bread.

Comfort food in a dip. Creamy flavorful dip or meat topping. If you like gravy fries you will love this on top of your fries. A keeper for me for sure. Read More

This was good even though it might be a bit soupy for a dip. I did let it cool off a bit and it firmed up but it was still fairly liquid-y. I was dipping with crackers however so if you used something more absorbent like bread it's fabulous (or pour it over french fries - yum!) It was super easy which is always nice too. I used just the normal baby portobellos since that's what I usually keep in the fridge but it would be great to change it up especially when the more unique varieties of mushrooms are on sale. I did broil this for a bit after I baked it to get the cheese nice and brown on top. If I make this again I'm definitely going to find some crusty bread to soak up all the goodness! Read More

WOW! This was absolutely amazing! I couldn't get enough and neither could my co-workers. By the end of lunch we decided to make it for Steak or chicken topping. Rice pasta etc. This could just about go on anything. Will definitely make again. I was blessed to find the exact mix of mushrooms packaged together at my local grocery store. Well worth it. I suggest making double if you got any more than a handful of people around Read More
