Very good, however I sauteed pearl onions and the mushrooms in olive oil. I also reduced the amount of wine to an 1/8 cup which I then reduced in the same pan as the onions and mushrooms. I added 1/4 tsp of nutmeg and 1 tsp of cinnamon. A pinch of salt to enhance the sweetness. It's a nice side or topping. If you don't care for the sweetness of white, then use red. This recipe is definitely for sophisticated taste buds.
Good. Don't use too much wine...
Make it smell better and most importantly taste better.
I agree with what others said - this was a pretty awful-tasting recipe.
I didn't throw it out, since I hate to waste food, but it was an ordeal to finish it.
It's surprising how three good-tasting ingredients combine to make something that tastes so bad.
I was thinking that maybe the choice of wine (I used a California chardonnay) made a difference, but I doubt it. Even The Woman I Love, who says she LOVES nutmeg, didn't even want to hear any more about this recipe once I mentioned it. Sorry, I did not like this at all.
NASTEY, NASTEY, NASTEY!
This recipe is for someone who appreciates unusual flavors. A few things of note: One, the kind of mushrooms you use will make or break this dish, so don't use white buttons for this. Instead, use brown crimini (baby bella) or portabella mushrooms as they have more flavor. Two, buy whole nutmeg from the bulk spices (not the overpriced jars) at your grocer and grate it yourself. This makes a world of difference in taste. Three, consider sauteeing in a little butter or olive oil like I do before adding wine and nutmeg, and reducing the amount of good sweet white wine to 1/4 cup, also reduce the salt to 1/4 tsp. Don't use a dry or cheap wine. I toss in a pinch of cinnamon, and everyone loves it! Remember: garbage in, garbage out. If you use plain or poor quality ingredients, you get a poorly tasting dish.
The smell alone was enough for us to not even eat these, and we don't normally waste food either.
