Welcome to Loaves and Dishes Hungry Meatless Monday Eaters!!! It’s been yet another WHOLE week since we’ve seen each other! Welcome BACK! Oh MY GOSH – you guys!!! These creamy mushrooms are to DIE for!! The first bite and you are going to just melt into your seat! I snuck my first bite standing at the stove – melting is not something you should do standing in front of your stove! It ALMOST happened! .
I am serving these mushrooms as an appetizer for…. Come on now… if you have been reading this blog long at all, you can probably guess…. Yep… my bookclub. So, they will be spooned out and eaten on a plate with whatever someone else brings to book club.
If I were serving these at home, which I guarantee that I will be – because my sweet husband came in the kitchen and ate one and said, “yep, I’ll just eat that for supper”. I hate to let him know that I am going to carry the whole thing right out the door in a few minutes.

No need to be particular, the butter mix will melt. Pour the cream over the top of the mushrooms and then sprinkle the white pepper on top of the mushrooms (use black pepper ½ tsp if you don’t have white pepper).
