This is the easiest and most tasty recipe. I get requests to make this from people who don't even like mushrooms!

This is an absolutely awesome recipe! I used it to make swiss patty melts and it was fantastic on those too. :) My husband and son love this stuff and it doesn't stay around long. I use button mushrooms instead of Portobello though.
