miniature portobellos? I thought those things were monsters by default.

This looks good, though, Sharon.

I think that's what the local supermarket labeled them! They looked exactly like the big ones. They seemed to be a little firmer than the larger ones - they were very good for holding a stuffing.

I usually think of portos as a substitute for meat because they are so. well, splendid in their texture and size. Again, I think you have a winner here.

Although I've never seen them actually labeled as "miniature", I have seen the Portabellos in plastic packages in much smaller sizes than the loose ones usually are.

They really are very pretty to look at, too, with the dark red and dark green :)

Good recipe that one, Sharon!

Someone once told me "mini" portobellos were called Crimini mushrooms. Any truth in that?
