These all look like amazing recipes. I guess I’ll just have to make each one. With fall in the air, mushroom recipes are always perfect and earthy for the crisp weather.

The wellington is making my mouth water, I shouldn’t have read this just before lunch!


Ron Rowley September 19, 2011 at 7:27 pm

So hard to choose but some one has to win


Christie @ Fig & Cherry September 19, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Definitely the Mushie Wellington. Go Aussies!!!


Chris Rowley September 19, 2011 at 9:04 pm

When I saw the comment from Ron, I thought all the Rowley’s should get in on the action. Yes, it is hard to choose, but Mushroom Wellington is the way to go. Go Aussies. Go the Fungi Foursome….

In love with the mushroom Wellington! :)

Nothing beats a mushroom in a wellington it looks so appetising makes you want to get your choppers round it.

The Mushroom Wellington looks & sounds delicious.


Gaylene September 20, 2011 at 10:16 am

Looks delicious, good luck Jennifer. Go Aussie!


Noel Chapman September 20, 2011 at 7:29 pm

They all look amazingly delicious! Good luck to you!


Mushrooms Canada September 21, 2011 at 6:31 am

They all look wonderful… but those Taco… the combo of caramelized onions and mushrooms really do it for me! Go Team Canada!


Barbara September 21, 2011 at 10:13 am

They all do look wonderful to me but the Wellington looks good enough to overcome the diverse finickiness-es of my family.


Carolyn September 21, 2011 at 11:39 pm

Mushroom Wellington has a great combination of flavours, easy to make and a pleasure to eat!

MMM Mushroom Wellington – what time’s dinner?


Bev September 26, 2011 at 8:03 pm

I made the Marsala Mushroom Cream Sauce and Beef for dinner tonight exactly according to the recipe. All, I can say is, I should have had a larger roast! Our two grandsons, 12 and 6, had seconds and thirds, and our daughter and son-in-law, who are vegetarians, thoroughly enjoyed the Marsala Mushrooms over Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes I made as a side dish. Whether this dish wins your contest or not, this recipe is a definite “must try”. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks for a great recipe! Next, I will try the Mushrooms Wellington.

The marsala mushroom and beef!


Kim in MD October 10, 2011 at 5:02 am

All three recipes look amazing, but I vote for the Marsala Mushroom Cream Sauce with Beef!
