    OMG the DRAMA!!!! Lol this was so much fun!!!! I hate mushrooms but my fantastic boyfriend loves them so i was looking for mushroom recipes for him. THANK YOU!!!!! I think it's true love when you are willing to cook something you don't like!!! Don't you agree? I had minor dramas of not following instructions and cutting large rectangles instead of small squares, but they still cooked fantastically!! Well at least the ones i didn't burn by leaving them in the oven on preheat when i returned them to brown. Sadly he had the whole topping meant for i think 3 times as much pastry but he really really really loved it, even ate some of the mushrooms out of the pan. i had to be told when the mushrooms were cooked as i have NEVER cooked them before but i found your directions really really easy to understand. Thank you.  -  24 Dec 2013


    This was a great, quick and super easy recipe! After I put the cheese and parsley on it, I put it back in the oven for a short time to soften the cheese. I will definitely make these again...expecially for a party!  -  04 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were delicious and easy to make. The only thing I would do different next time is cut the puff pastry into smaller pieces to make them bite size. Also I'd like to try different cheeses or a mixture of cheeses.  -  13 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
