Pat's Mushroom Saute

Rating: 4.59 stars
My son-in-law makes the best sauteed mushrooms; and now, so do I! Eat them hot out of the pan; they don't reheat well.

Baked Potato with Mushrooms

Rating: 4.7 stars
A big baked potato topped with sauteed mushrooms and a dollop of yogurt is a filling, easy meal after a long day at the office or before a game. Speed up the cook time by starting in the microwave! I like to serve it with a salad or green beans.

Delicious mushroom risotto made with vegetable broth, cream, and a variety of fresh vegetables. Serve as a side dish or filling main course.

Cream of Mushroom Soup II

Rating: 4.6 stars
Rich cream of mushroom soup, beats the canned variety any day. Garnish bowls with fresh chives and thyme. Use lemon thyme in place of the regular if you can find it.

Balsamic vinegary mushrooms, yum! A great way to start your dinner party! These mushrooms are equally delicious hot or cold so you can prepare them the night before your party or moments before!

"Restaurant-quality side dish! It only took about 20 minutes to make, too. Like others, I added the spinach last so that the greens wouldn't be overcooked." – Yumyum ^^

A very quick, tasty side dish that pairs well with an Asian-themed meal. They would also be great topped with a stir-fry.
