DELICIOUS...we used really big fresh portobello mushrooms that DH bought from the market. Served them with steaks and I ate just the mushrooms, got so full couldn't eat my steak. Great recipe and rather simple too. Thanks, these were great!
These were INCREDIBLE!!!! I used fresh spinach instead of frozen, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I LOOOOOOVE portobello mushrooms and I have been trying not to eat any carbs for dinner or lunch so this was perfect....funny I never thought of replacing *bread* with mushrooms! Thanks so much for posting!! I'll make these quite often!
Delicious! I made this as a side dish, used fresh spinach, chopped, and just a shot of our friend Peri-Peri (hot sauce). Definately a do again, Thanks for another winnerDerf -- posted Jun 12, 2002, 3 members found this helpful Added comments Yum-served for brunch with toad in the hole eggs - I added 1 clove crushed garlic to each Thanks for my second time round enjoyment
