    I’m assuming the onion and garlic is minced ? 😉 and it looks like from the picture the mushrooms are kept whole?

      Correct. You can cut the mushroom if you prefer, especially if they are large.

    Is there a substitute I can use for the white wine? I’m an underage cook.

    • Michelle August 31, 2016, 12:50 pm

      You can substitute using chicken broth..

      Some cooking wines are alcohol-free.

    What is the best white wine to use?

    • Best Recipe Box October 3, 2016, 11:11 am

      We like to use a dry white like a sauvignon blanc or similar, but it is really up to personal preference.

  • Mary Lape October 15, 2016, 7:13 pm

    Could I use other types of mushrooms in this recipe?

    • Best Recipe Box October 15, 2016, 8:41 pm

      Yes indeed. Just about any mushroom will work. Enjoy!
