Mushroom Turnovers Recipe
"I love these tasty little turnovers hot or cold," writes Joanne Migliozzi-Beers from Mesquite, Nevada. "They're great for parties or for serving at home. I'm recently 'transplanted' from Pennsylvania - the nation's top mushroom producer. A friend gave me this recipe while I was living there."
