When my grandmother passed a few years ago I was handed a large box of recipes. I go through these recipes about twice a year and I am always amazed that I seem to find a recipe that sneaks to the top of the pile.
How could I have missed this recipe for creamed mushrooms?
The mushrooms were simply delicious and yet had this gourmet flair that could not be denied.
I hope you enjoy this recipe find from my grandmothers box of treasure.
