Winners Crowned in 2011 “Mushrooms: Every Day, Every Way” Recipe Contest!

We’re pleased to announce the results from our “Mushrooms: Every Day, Every Way” recipe contest with Taste of Home. With more than 1,000 recipes submitted this year, it took much testing, tasting and deliberating to narrow it down to three marvelous, mouth-watering mushroom recipes that are simple and practical enough for the everyday home cook. Check out the winning recipes below and try one today!

Main Dish winner, Sheron Campbell, hails from Gilbertsville, PA. Sheron not only earned ultimate bragging rights from us, but also high praises from her husband, who dubbed this Chicken and Mushroom Marsala “Outstanding!” A succulent sauce of sautéed mushrooms, garlic and Marsala tops breaded, pan-fried chicken in a harmonious melody of flavors that will have you singing praises of your own.

Appetizers and Sides winner, Nadine Mesch, calls Mount Healthy, OH home. Her Triple- Mushroom au Gratin Potatoes boasts a plethora of flavors and textures from white buttons, criminis and shiitakes. This mushroom triple-threat melds with red potatoes, sherry, Gruyere cheese and rosemary in a palate-pleasing dish that can accompany your favorite meats or hold its own as a meatless main.

Breakfast category winner, Lisa Huff, resides in Wilton, CT. Lisa took breakfast to a whole new level with this savory Mushroom-Herb Stuffed Fresh Toast. Sautéed criminis and an herbed-cheese mixture are sandwiched between slices of hearty Texas toast and cooked until golden brown (then devoured with gusto).

Congratulations to all of our winners and a BIG thanks to everyone who entered. We had a blast giving away Weber Grills each week to 22 lucky entrants and we love seeing your creative ideas for cooking mushrooms every day, in every way. Share your tasty creations with us on Facebook and Twitter and we will shower you with lots of mushroom love!
