I did a half recipe and served it as a side for the DH and I had mine over my crumbed steak and thoroughly enjoyed this treat, I used half milk and half cream which turned out to be a bit too rich for the DH so the few mouthfuls that he left I was more than happy to polish of. Thank you Mikekey made for Players Favorites - 5 Star Gems at FF&F.

I didn't make this recipe with the bread. Instead I had it with sirloin steak that I grilled on the porch. Excellent side for all kinds of meals! Went over big with my family!

I had a bag of sliced portabella mushroom's to use up, and I could not have chosen a better recipe to use them in. I used some fresh sage with this recipe, but everything else was as per recipe, and I wouldn't change a thing, the mushroom's were perfect. I used full cream and this was delicious for breakfast this morning served on hot buttered toast. I just loved the mushroom's done like this and so did DH, I will be making this often. Wonderful recipe Mikekey. Thank You.

Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Mikekey. We enjoyed it very much. I served it over rustic mashed potatoes for an extra special treat. The mushrooms and sauce were the stars of the plate, with their great flavor and texture. Made for Best of 2014 Tag Game.
