I echo adding the creme fraiche - think it would have been bland without it.

I didn't have any rosemary so used tarragon instead and that tasted good. This recipe is ok - I used it to accompany a steak and griddled peppers, but I prefer sweet potatoe in wedges. It was a little much - the potato is very soft, and there wasn't a whole lot of flavour to the mushrooms...maybe some garlic would help.

Added baked beans to the mushroom and rosemary, was delicious with grated parmesan on top!

Mmmm we really liked this. Really interesting but complimentary blend of flavours. The rosemary was really nice aswell and with the luscious green salad, it'll definitely be something we have again.

Was nice, but a little dry - I would mix with lots of cheese next time!

"theres not much to this" was my husband comment before eating it, having cooked it. "This is really tastey" was his finishing comment. Enjoyed by us both, but I would use more rosemary next time

Not incredibly impressed by this. I prefer the way I usually do sweet potatoes which is to scoop out the insides, mix with herby cream cheese and top with fried bacon pieces.
