So when I saw this recipe’s first ingredient was bacon I thought, hmmm what could be wrong with it? Then I saw that there were mushrooms in it. I’m so not a mushroom fan, but my ENTIRE family loves them. So what do you think? Should I try it for them? To be nice?
If you are a mushroom fan I think you should try it, because every recipe from Chef Todd is amazing, AND the great thing about Freeze Dried Mushrooms is you can buy a can and then use them when you want. No more rotting, leftover fungus in your fridge… Can you tell I don’t love mushrooms?
