    If you grill the mushrooms, they will stay dryer then baking in an oven. - 10/4/13

    UH OH!!! If you are going to eat low-carb., first rule is do NOT eat low fat. Also, there is a great OOpsie roll recipe for buns. Just cream cheese and eggs for the oopsie rolls. I think someone has posted the recipe on Spark. But you can also Google it.
    So, add mayo, bacon and full fat cheese!!!

    The recipe is very good. However to the person who said she would not eat a mushroom instead of the burger...well that is your choice, but this is to rate the recipe not give an opinion on what you would or would not do. Thanks - 1/16/15

    I'm not a big red meat eater, so I switched out the beef for chicken that I ground from chicken breasts that I had and changed the low-fat cheddar cheese to a small amount of mozzarella. This was very delicious! - 9/21/13

    The only thing I left out was the onion (allergic) and they were delicious. - 9/21/13
