Reviews forPhilly Cheese Fakes
"it was great ilove it"
"absolutely amazing! the smoked paprika is wonderful, i had never used this spice before... but it was fabulous!! I have found a new favorite meal!!"
"Could not find shiitake mushrooms, so I just grabbed the only fresh mushrooms we could find in our rural grocery store (don't know what kind they were). My husband wasn't a fan--the thought of a vegitarian meal was too much for him--but I though it was great! Made it for Mom too & it went over well. A creative take on an old favorite!"
"This is such a good recipe! My daughter, who "hates mushrooms" just loved it! She didn't know it had mushrooms in it! I would make this again in a heartbeat!"
"This was so good, my husband didn't even mind that it was meatless."
"made this last night with a few alterations... I didn't have lemon and couldn't find the paprika I just bought (grrr) and shitakes are too expensive for MY pocketbookso I used cremini mushrooms - I tossed the veggies with olive oil, salt & pepper and a splash of worcestershire - then did everything else the same EXCEPT I was afraid it wouldn't have enough flavor without the lemon and paprika - so I made garlic bread out of the roll and toasted itI REALLY liked this for a quick meatless meal - I will totally make it again!!"
"Could not find shitake mushroolms, so used portobellas instead. They turned out delicious and the vegetarian in the family got a big kick out of the name."
