Mirj helped name this as I am not very creative in naming recipes. I had a version of this at an airport restaurant in Atlanta many years ago. I played with it and made it my own! Enjoy!

I really enjoyed this dish. Added more mushrooms then it called for. Going to make this dish again. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I added more mushrooms and left out the carrots. I took luby's suggestion and added balsamic vinegar. This is a winner of a recipe!

I figured you couldn't go wrong with this recipe once I looked over the ingredients. I did make some changes to the proportions, and reduced everything. I think that this is a bit much for 2 servings as stated. I used 1 vidalia, about 10 mushrooms sliced thickly, 2 shallots, 1 carrot and reduced the butter to 2 tbsp. I also used 4 garlic cloves (I love garlic!). It was a great side dish that I think could have easily served 2 or 3. With the serving size adjusted, and the butter reduced, the calories are actually in a normal range too.
