Finger food. It can be a tricky one to replace when you start eating low carb. You’ve got guests coming and you want to put something tasty and crunchy out on the table that can be dipped into a pot of yumminess while they enjoy a drink and a laugh.

Step aside potato chips, you’ve got no place here. These crumbed mushrooms are crispy, tasty and soooo moreish, especially when combined with a creamy Ranch dip. I used Portobello mushrooms because I love the nice big slices, but any mushroom will do. Just make sure that your slice is a good thickness.

This serves six generous servings, but you could make it an entree and serve four if you wanted? Hmmmmmm, next time. Enjoy!
