Louis Xiv Luxurious Sauteed Mushrooms

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Shannon Cooks

This is a rich, sumptuous side dish that I whipped up once on a whim when I was on a low-carb diet. Bien sur, these are decadent enough to conjure up visions of Louis XIV's elaborate feasts at Versailles. Eating these was blissful ecstasy - you'll feel like a head of state (as long as you don't think about the fat content or the expense of truffle oil!). I hope that you'll agree that this recipe is sure to impress monarchs accustomed to living in the lap of luxury. Bon appetit!

Luxurious and delicious!!! I'll try this again when I have truffle oil but in a pinch walnut oil works quite well!! Thanks!
