How interesting a simple little mushroom dish can be when you use exotic varieties, like chanterelles and lobster mushrooms. Be creative!

We all really enjoyed this dish! Even my toddler ate them. ;) I had baby portabellos on hand, but no fresh thyme (like I thought I did), so I used dried. Thanks for sharing, tony! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.
