Breaded Mushrooms Appetizer with Home Made Dip

Posted in Home Made Cooking

On the same day I made the breaded turkey meatballs I decided to make something just before I start cooking. Something to munch on that will help lower the crazy levels of hunger I was in. I noticed that when I’m hungry or mad the food doesn’t come out right so making this little munch was a good idea, for the sake of everyone 🙂

We love mushrooms! All of us, even the kids; they can eat raw mushrooms for snack at school, so I decided to take advantage of that and make breaded mushrooms with a home made dip. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out so I didn’t make too many, looking back I should have doubled the amount.
