  • I am making this tonight with bacon, but in your directions, there is nowhere I see where you added the spinach. So where does the spinach come into play? Sauteed after the mushroom? Please advise. Thank you!

  • Would dairy-free alternative work instead of the cream? 😊

  • This was delicious! I added chicken (only cause my husband ‘needs’ some meat) but it didn’t need it at all. We both loved it, will certainly be making again :)
