Reviews for Mushroom Turnovers
"These are great! I make them every year on Christmas eve (we have a bunch of different appetizers for dinner). I use a variation of this filling for omelets sometimes, too--just add spinach. The thyme, onion, and mushroom are a fantastic combo."
"Great flavor! I used fresh thyme."
"When I was making these and saw the amount of salt called for I thought it was way too much for only a half pound of mushrooms, (and I like my salt) so I cut it down to around 1/2 tsp. I didn't really measure it but I was right, the original recipe would have been too salty. The filling was good with the decreased salt but the dough was very bland so the next time I made them, I added salt, marjoram and thyme to the dough and it was much better. I added minced minced garlic to the mushrooms and onions and instead of salt, used either Everglades Seasoning (Monkey Dust lol) or Tony Chachere's for a little zing."
"These are very tasty! And they are great hot or cold. If you want to warm them back up after refrigerating, place them back in the oven-microwaving will make the crust soft."
"These are very delicious and never last long with my husband around. The thyme really boosts up the flavor and makes them a perfect savory snack."
