Wow - this was just great! The tomato relish was terrific and went very well with the mushrooms. I left out the shallots and onions, otherwise made just as specified. Loved this dish - thanks for posting the recipe! Made for the Best of 2008 event

Oh my goodness, this was so good! I actually had it for breakfast this morning and was so pleased! Instead of shallots I used red onion, but otherwise followed the recipe. Well, I did half it. Thanks so much Sage!
