Check Out: Mushroom Recipes

I recently had a cook-together with my girlfriends Jac and Pam at Pam’s spanking new kitchen. We all made one dish each (Pam made creamy tortellini, I made buffalo wings) while Jac made these super delicious and gourmet looking baked portobello mushrooms. The mushrooms were topped with ham, cheese, garlic and more mushrooms. The only “complaint” we had about these mushrooms was that there were not enough, simply because they were too yummy. This is super easy too – my friend, Jac, who claimed to be a total noob in the kitchen (we disagree with her!), cooked this for us and everyone was wowed by the results. The mushrooms were juicy and we can taste the wholesome goodness of all the ingredients.

Jac cooked the mushrooms entirely in Pam’s Philips air fryer, and I managed to recreate the dish at home using a traditional oven. This is a perfect side dish to accompany almost any meal you have, definitely a keeper’s recipe for me. Thanks Jac for sharing her wonderful recipe :)
