"This recipe was an original to The Ellis River House located in Jackson, New Hampshire (White Mountain Region) where my husband and I stayed at many moons ago before the kids came around. It's a wonderful place that served delicious food. This mushroom recipe is super easy and delicious. It is good served on its own as a side or as an appetizer."

These are some seriously good shrooms! I was out of sweet Vermouth, and liquor store was out (shortages!!!) so I used half dry Vermouth and half Fiero Vermouth. So easy and so delish. I did have to add a wee bit of salt. The sauce was silky good, we loved how the shallots cooked down in it. Thanks for sharing!
