Mmmmmmmm I love mushrooms and this sounds like another new way to serve them with a different flavor. I agree, you could eat the entire recipe and still be eating only 30 carbs. Thanks Debe! :)

Even if I eat all ten mushrooms, I will only be eating 30 carbs! Wow! I can really splurge with this one. But I guess I should share because it will make a wonderful snack for company.
