  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. These were something different and very tasty. I used nice fresh tomatoes from my garden. I thought the pizzelles were crying out for some garlic, so seasoned mine at the table with garlic salt. Great recipe!
  5. Very good! The grocery store was out of whole portabello 'shrooms, so I bought the fresh sliced version and grouped them all together on the pan....same thing, just a little smaller...let's just say that there were no complaints! I thought these were good, but like Bill mentioned above, they were even better with a little garlic salt sprinkled on top. Thanks for the low-carb recipe!


  1. I added minced cooked onion and cooked bacon bits to the spinach and cheese mixture
  2. These were delish! I used fresh parmesan instead of mozzarella, quite a bit of garlic, and added a thin slic gouda on top. We shared a piece of chicken but these filled us up on their own. I'll be making these often. Thank you!
  3. This is a great side dish or even appetizer! I made more of the spinach mixture and added garlic to it, then topped the tomato with gorganzala cheese. Instead of using butter I brushed the mushrooms with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. YUMMMMM
