The great taste of Guacamole, I can’t say a lot about this, it is just a great dip. My wife looks forward to it and can’t get enough of it every time we serve it. It is great as a dip or stand alone side dish, there is very little prep time and it is delicious. Serve it with corn chips and you’ll love it. Enjoy

I have seen frozen Fried Mushrooms in the store. Why you would buy them I don’t know. They just take a few minutes to prepare from fresh mushrooms. It doesn’t make much sense unless you are really pressed for time. If you don’t like Italian seasoning just substitute traditional breadcrumbs. This is such a great side dish it goes good with almost anything. I used white button mushrooms in this recipe but I am sure portabellas would be just as good, if not better. Enjoy

This Tuna Melt Recipe is the best. When I saw the double layer of cheese I just had to give it a try. This is unique- The layer of cheese melted over the top engulfs the tuna salad and keeps it from sliding out. What a great dish to serve while watching a football game. You and your guests will love it. I doubled this recipe and substituted white bread. It produced a total of 8.
